Fresh audience

One of the nice things about having my parents visit is that it gives me a whole new, fresh audience for all of the things that I'm trying out on the culinary front.

After Sunday, when my mother was unimpressed (and justifiably so) with the yorkshire puddings (I turned down the temperature in the oven too soon) and the roast potatoes --- although she did like the roast beef we had: it was superb, if I say so myself --- I made lasagna on Monday. And she and my father were both impressed: it was really good, and they enjoyed it.

Today I did scotch eggs again: and once again, they were really good. Of course, my father won't touch them: he doesn't eat eggs, he doesn't eat sausage, and he won't touch anything which is deep fried. He has good health reasons for this, so I will forgive him.

One more week of their visit: I'll have to put on my thinking cap as to what else to cook for them!

Yours, thinking ahead,

Yep, a new audience (especially appreciateive ones) is always good. It sounds like you are doing well imptessing them. I just read your last post about the lasagne you made and it sounds gorgeous. No wonder they enjoyed it! I like lasagne too so I might try and make one soon :)

I love eggs. I couldn't/wouldn't give up eggs at all!

Mmm... Yorkshire Puds! I've not had them for about a year (lactose intolerant!). Now you've mentioned them I might just see how they work out with rice milk or soya milk...

Oh my gosh, I haven't had Yorkshire pudding or Scotch Eggs in so long! 1987 in fact. lol One of a handful of memories from my trip to England. I have to admit, I'm a fan of the pudding.
