Sorry minx, didn,t see your post until just now. I think it,s nice that Mary has put all her fave xmAs recipes in one book, but if you have her other books, the publishers say that the recipes can be found in them. I might still buy it, I do like books that concentrate one subject and then I know where to find a recipe and it,s easy to put a complete meal together using her ideas. She is a truly reliable cook and her recipes are really tasty. I,m a great fan of hers.xxx

I have no way to help in either point of view - I have a five shelf bookcase
in my kitchen and it is full of books - so I cannot speak of self restraint
But - since I am spending most of the Christmas Season and well into the New Year
Cooking and making preserves - Chutney!! My precious books are absolutely invaluable
As for buying - I look at what I love to enjoy - and want to question these Merchants
and purveyors of pleasures - what the devil do they spend their money on that is half
so delicious as what they sell - Fruit, Flowers, Chocolate, Wine, Liqueurs
Oh um yes and Books - they sell them and where does the money go to what do they buy

People are weird. I am used to seeing used cookbooks for a pound or so...even a penny or so...but 999.12 quid? (It's the twelve pence that really puts me away.) For a bento cookbook?
I kid you not. Check it out!Bento Boxes: Japanese Meals on the Go Go to the "buying options" and check the "used" offers...and that one is only in "good" condition!

I would have suggested that it was a misprint if it was for the fact that there are 3 separate entries at that price!

I heard of a book called 100 things to do with left over Turkey

Well I know of one - any how - what could the other 99 be please Pixie Doll
I made Tomato Chutney today. - and some Strawby sauce for Icecream
I am making - possibly Peach and Apricot chutney tomorrow and perhaps Pear -
We have a lot of nice cold meat - and we love Srevotfel at Chateau Patti

What's this leftover turkey of which you speak?

I love the idea of the peach and apricot chutney Patti! ...be cool with kebabs.xx

Hi you guys
Leftover Turkey - it's the way the Ex-Cousins cook it - they are members of my step-daddy's family
they cook turkey so darned dry - I am no Chef de Cuisine but I never go there now because I was
Never "Family" enough and it is no loss - I offered them a recipe and they took offence
Invited them to Christmas Dinner - but I have Roast Beef and they turned me down - they think
Christmas is turkey day
OK not another word about them
For Pixie Doll - there is not enough of either - and the peaches are a little RIPE - skinned the little
blighters - and put them back in the fridge for tomorrow's preparation - I can join in this forum now
much better because my two best buddies - (the recently married ones) are also Cooking Fanatics
I have sort of woke up a bit - they tell you straight - no offence meant nor taken - but they are
plain spoken - like - know what I'm saying you guys ?????
I had not best say more it is not my intention to monopolize this forum - a wee but more Tomorrow

Pix, I lost 4 lbs this week, maybe it's the ochazuke? I had to run it through the metric conversion programme twice, I couldn't believe it! I haven't seen a number under 80kg for months.

Made some besan puri batter and added some of that Sichimi pepper instead of coriander chutney...wow! Makes you sit up and take notice in the morning! Had one this AM with cream cheese and smoked salmon for brekkie!

Well done Ori! That is no mean feat at this time of year...me thinks I may have found your 4 llb! but not getting on the scales to check it out!...Dinner out again tonight, feel it's a losing battle at the moment, out again next week so I'm trying not to stress about it and will try and pick the healthy option.
I imagine it could be your Japanese choice that is doing it for you...all that and it tastes fab too...bring it on!xxx

I love the fact that the Bento cookbook recipes are mostly for one portion, no leftovers, no urge to take seconds. I'm sure that's helping too.

Posted on 14 Dec 2013 12:36:40 GMT
So, bouyed up by the success, I ordered
Bento Boxes: Japanese Meals on the Go
A used one for about 3 quid. The new ones are going for 25 or so, and all the used books I've had from Zon have been good as new.

I also cancelled my pre-order of the Bikers book, because I find their curry recipes such a faff, I figure their "far east" recipes probably will be complexly-written too. I'd rather save my money for awhile. I see that Rick Stien's India book that was 25 quid is down to 12, in a month or so I may be able to pick it up used for pence. Anjum Anand's Indian Food Made Easy can be had for one penny as we speak, so it's worth waiting.

Totally agree Ori their curry book is on my list of ones to sell back to amazon x

A dear friend of mine - she is Indian - tells me that so much of Indian Cooking is about the flavour the spices - many recipes are only variants - You can enjoy more in your kitchen by modifying a recipe - even as far as "Yes it says apple - but what if I use Kiwifruit" in the Kitchens - the meals are simply prepared and varied by innovation and the use of different spices
I have been telling her that Fun in the ~Kitchen - the some of the greatest fun you CAN have (this side of the blankets any way)
