CD, too much turmeric makes things bitter, not spicy. Probably too much chili powder. I always edit as I go, particularly the Bikers who will ask for fresh chilis AND chili powder AND black pepper!! A teaspoon of chili powder is quite a lot if you don't like things spicy. Start with a quarter of it and go from there.

Thanks Ori, it wasn,t bitter so it must have been the chilli powder. Another time I will try fresh chillies, I,m on a learning curve here so any. Advice is welcome. The turmeric is a gorgeous colour fresh, a deep orange, unlike that dirty yellow colour of powdered. How much chilli should i start with,should I use red or green, is dried stronger than fresh etcetc. It wasn,t unbearably hot or anything like that, just a bit spicier than I would have though compared to that which have eaten in a

I am fond of Yorkshire Aye tha' knows
Bronte Countra' and it shows
Dahn heer in Cheshire Learning theer chat
there's no pressure for a Cheshire cat !!
But in Yorkshire on a day
Like a pig in a gannel as they say
Confusion there may be but I'm willing
To spend quite often many a shilling
Visiting places for a "Walk"
I love to hear the people TALK !!!

Nothing to criticize I can see
Our infinite Variety

Until this week I have only written one poem in my life, I can't believe it's happened. I wrote that for a school magazine when I was eleven, donkeys years ago. There must be something in the air.

For all my good friends I write this line
I should be working not wasting my time
But I'm mortal and cannot resist
Checking in to see, who's on the list
There's Ori and Maggie, CD and Patti
Its not their fault my boss is now ratty
He needs my work and wants that report
"Wont be a minute" is my usual retort
I must just check "mmm! what's for dinner"
I love those ideas that wont make me slimmer!

The smaller the chili size, the hotter it is. The heat is in the seeds and membrane, so you can either cut the chili open and scrape them out (and WASH YOUR HANDS) or just put the whole chili in with maybe a hole poked in it, to give flavour without all the heat. Green chilis are simply unripe red chilis. Dried is more concentrated unless it's been poorly stored.

You know you love curry when your fingernails are pale yellow instead of white, and you're not a smoker! LOL

Go on CD, don't feel silly
We all gotta learn to handle chili
Dried or fresh, red or green
They make the best curries you've ever seen!

Honestly Maggie, it,s uncanny...the last time I wrote a poem that was any good was at senior school in my first year, aged about 11.... It was called pit ponies.. For the school magazine, but I never got lauded for my efforts because they put someone else,s name to it and she won a school prize. Never written one since, I do the first line and then I dry

Currie I,ll make, with help from you all
Soufflés may rise and soufflés may fall

Or the verse that I,ve written, then I,ll have to alter.xxxxx I,m inspired, you daft lot!!!

Just look what Patti's started. I've never even attempted to write a poem since I was eleven, and now my mind keeps playing with words ,and trying out rhymes in my head, and everyone else seems to be having a go. Well done all of us!

Can anyone explain why I have received most of the posts today, but this one of yours Patti has only just come through. Otherwise I would have thanked you for it this morning, as I've been popping in all day .i don't understand how this happens . Also Orinoco's poem to Diamond has only just come through. It's a puzzlement.

In reply to an earlier post on 4 Feb 2014 20:13:02 GMT
Alas my Diamond - little did they care
Took your verse and what is worse
Added another name there
Diamond go shopping and take your purse
That was so darned unfair

In reply to an earlier post on 4 Feb 2014 20:15:58 GMT
Orinoco in Apron so Frilly
Was chopping a pretty red chilli
It's hot as they Come
When she sucked her Thumb
She said something else besides Silly

Maggie asked - What has Patti started
We are all quite become merry hearted
In manner appealing
We write as we're feeling
Pleasure is now thus imparted

In reply to an earlier post on 4 Feb 2014 20:21:30 GMT
Is there someone missing IS THERE??
Why !! bless me if it is not Bear
I cannot forget
Good day Bear - and Well Met
I really must try to be fair

In Cornwall they find lots of Pixies
Full they are of nonsense and tricksy
But we need not the rest
For we have the best
This is written for Pixie

Oh my Gods I wish I knew
What on earth am I to do
Someone said Patti
Youse are going Scatty
You must write one for YOU

Raided the fish shop today and as usual bought too much. But I got a salmon head, so there's a gallon of dashi stock, DH has half the head to munch on. Broiled some roes. Salted some salmon in the fridge. Still have some cod to cook for tomorrow's lunch.

Pret the sandwich shop....( I love their tea in there and have asked if they sell it but they have it blended themselves) have started selling miso was going fast when I was in London as the calories are so low!

We had in YoSushi and I was unimpressed, I think theirs is made from granules. It was too "dark" in flavour, fishy in the unpleasant sense of the word. I prefer mine. Of course I tend to just add a dollop of miso to whatever I'm eating.

Orinoco la Womblita - you can have my share of that -
I back off from anything Fishy - including FOOD
I am a funny cuss where food is concerned
