Recipe Fail

I forgot to get the cardamon seeds so I didn't do the Indian yellow split pea soup with coconut milk.  When I do that I'll definitely report back.  It looks lovely.  I was going to do it Tuesday but I ran out of onions.  Still, at least the onions that I finally remembered to get yesterday were good in the Chilli con Charlie (like an normal chilli con carne but with things like baked beans, it would make a Texan cry).  Then bear utterly rejected the chilli because it was quorn and bear thinks that quorn is an abomination.

I've amended my delivery that is supposed to get here tomorrow.  There was another fail there.  DH tried the couscous with salmon that was on Eat Well for Less and we all agreed it was delicious.  I couldn't wait to have another go at it.  It was relatively low fat, it had veggies involved, and oily fish and the gluten free couscous from Tesco was not too extortionately priced.  Tesco have stopped doing the gluten free couscous.  Just as I find an awesome recipe that we will all eat, darn it to heck, we can't find the ingredient.  I may have to use quinoa.  It won't be the same.

This morning I spoke to someone who was really missing father.  She is having trouble with the church boiler and she knew that father would have made the right jokes and said the right things and even if he couldn't fix it, he would somehow take the sting out.

On the bright side, thanks to Barbara Anne who kindly pointed me in the right direction, I may be able to pick up another Remy.  That will make my life a lot easier.

  1. Sorry you can't get the gluten free couscous. Can you substitute rice, instead? I like the sound of Chilli con Charlie (love baked beans!) Never had quorn, though. I made a potato and corn soup, today; a bit like chowder, but not as thick. I'm recovering from Friday's lumpectomy and it was on the right side, so I can't use my right arm too much yet, and, of course, I am right-handed, so cutting the potatoes with my left hand was quite entertaining. :)
