    So far we’ve had sweetcorn fritters with tomato, avocado and plantain salsa (wow!) and C had truffle mac and cheese.

    Still room for more hehehe...:

    Where are you off to Biz?
    Have to say the Costco jalfrezi was delicous. Huge chunks of chicken, fresh chillies, fab sauce. Could have passed it off for homemade no problems! Enough for 3, or 2 greed peeps, came with plenty of rice and all for £7.99!

    I've done a keema and rice. But I'm actually full of chickpea curry and samosas from the summer fair. Might not eat any, certainly not much. I'll think about it once Mr PC gets in.

    Barcelona @BelleDuJour cant wait!

    Burgers were delicious. I had the “American” with melted cheese and streaky bacon with mustard, C had the Korean chicken burger which packed a punch!

    Tried something new this evening. We have Kohlrabi growing and a couple of small tennis ball size ones were ready for harvesting.:) So I had a quick search to see if I could make a salad with them. And yes one can and tasted lovely. :)Something we shall repeat. We had with home-grown potatoes, cut 'n' come again lettuce, tons, cue and a small yellow courgette with a cheese quiche.

    Oh enjoy it! Think you are going where we go, if I remember correctly. It's a great spot.

    We are going to a resort called Sitges. Tightwad C has got us flying into Gerona. We then have a four hour bus, train, scooter, donkey, sky leap journey to the resort as he refused to hire us a car or pay for a transfer. If it’s hideous he will know about it!

    Yes. I've been several times. Lovely place. We go just down the coast to Castelldefels too. Mr PC did the Gerona flight with his mum from Bournemouth once. They hired a car which softened it though. I've only ever flown into Barcelona.

    Have a lovely times, Biz. Some friends of ours have just come back from Sitges and they loved it.

    Last day with the kids today! Don't often say this but I'm sorry to see them go. I've taught them for two years and they're a lovely bunch. They'll be an asset to their secondary schools!

    Our HT is hosting a party this evening so dinner will be whatever she's cooked! She is a very good cook, so it'll be great!

    Happy weekend all!

    Make sure you go to La Santa Maria, the food is delicious. O/H lived there during the Barcelona Olympics. Also at the top of La Rambla in Barcelona, you must visit La Boqueria, in fact, you'll need another suitcase!!

    LOL! Oh to be a (Spanish) fly on the wall :D:D:D
    Some lovely restaurants.....but watch for the ones who bring the lobster to the table to introduce it to you before it becomes your dinner, and the tales of the 'suckling lamb that was on the mountains this morning with it's mother' or the 'suckling pig that today left it's brothers and sisters'!
    They love a bit of theatrical baby animal slaughter in Barcelona.........not at all Disney Lol!

    I felt like that about the ones I took from y5 to y6 a few years ago.

    I've got leftover keema so I'll get some naan bread and an Indian veggie dish on the way home. Easy!

    I had the leftover pasta/pesto for dinner yesterday. Tonight we are having Chinese takeaway as I am too exhausted even to think about rummaging in the freezer, let alone cook. And we still have three days to go!

    Hooray I made it!!!! Steak and chips with extra onion rings in the pub to celebrate with friends which has been fab.

    Also met a group of my 'boys' that I used to teach, which was great as they have grown into such lovely young men. Lots of reminiscing about how they still use the bridge and claw when chopping, that I had taught them in year 7 and I was right that girlfriend were very impressed when they cooked for them. Which was lovely and reminded me why I do what some days seems like an impossible job!

    Theatre tomorrow to see 'the colour purple' then thinking of trying one of the Korean restaurants close by, as I've never been to one before.

    Happy weekending all, hopefully the weather brightens up tomorrow.

    Bit of a disaster meal this evening. I'm trying to make space in the freezer for all the veg which need blanching and freezing, so I found some Swedish meatballs. However they haven't frozen well and after thawing we ended up with mince in a sauce! :rolleyes:

    Yes, the taste was the same and as Swedish meatballs are made with pork mince was definitely pork flavoured.
