  1. We have preachers who come to our church from time to time who are chaplains at prisons and withe the armed forces. Billy Graham has just died and although I have great problems with him, in the five minute clips on the news we heard of Christ dying and being resurrected and salvation by grace. When the so called religious leaders like the archbishop of Canterbury go on the air, you don;t hear about Christ, and certainly not grace, It is always something political.
  2. Whats for Supper...

    I always add saffron when I do a fish stew, which isn't very often as my wife can't stand the taste of fish.

    A pinch is all you need.

    I had salmon with mashed potatoes, steamed green beans, Chantenay carrots and celery. There was a lot of mash left over from our seniors lunch yesterday, as we had shepherds pie, and as I hate waste, and as I mashed it I brought some home. There is a great difference between mashing for two of us and up to 50, I didn't want them to throw it away. There was a large catering size can of tomatoes in the pie and some of the juice was left. I did a bit or the preparing for the vegetarian version. Helen, our cook, prepares the base and leaves me to adjust the seasoning and the herbs, I also did a tomato sauce with some of the juice left from the tomatoes. The washer up asked if he should throw the remainder of the juice away, but I said "no" and froze two small pots and I will use them in the future for other sauces, The mash I brought home, yesterday evening I added seasoning, cream cooked cabbage and spring onions, a touch of powdered garlic and baked it . Enough left for tomorrow with salmon again. I usually add powdered garlic to my mash, but sometimes do a saffron mash, have you tried that?
  5. Yes we all do. We recently had a visiting preacher who was a prison chaplain who aid he was at a meeting of all the other chaplains from various denominations and religions. He said that there could only be one true religion. the only one who agreed with that statement was the Muslim. All the others including CofE and RC were very much against him. It was a while back and I can't remember his exact words.
  6. The beauty of creation

    I believe that dogs refer to human dogs, but I have been told by literalist teachers that dogs mean dogs.

    Our fishing industry has been decimated by over fishing and the EU common fisheries policy. Also the waters are warmer so herring have moeed somewhere else; When we were children the only fish we ate was herring which my mum used to fry till it was crispy, but now our herring fishery is decimated. Due to the fishing policies, fisherman are only allowed to land a certain quota of each type of fish, and no undersize fish. The result of this if they are fishing for one type of fish and they catch another type for which the quota has been reached, they have to throw them back with any undersize fish. These fish die . i cannot see the point of that. Our salmon is mostly farmed in Scotland, sea bass (French call it loupe de mer, that is sea wolf) I noticed recently is sometimes farmed in Turkey.

    I thought he would be destroyed by the brightness of Christs coming.

    Thanks Jim. I did read a review on the web and it said that it was tastier than cod, Cod is not bad but not my favourite, I like Haddock, Sea Bass, Salmon. When I go to our fish and chippie, I usually get the senior citizens cod and chips, as it is somewhat less expensive than haddock, which I prefer. There was a spat in recent year of our supermarkets selling Vietnamese River Cobbler. I have never bought it as such but I think is was the smoked fish I once bought in a pack of fish pie mix. I don't know how our supermarkets get away with selling Extra Large Cod, or Haddock battered fillets which are half the size or less as the regular fillets in our chippies. I did crispy aromatic duck for lunch. I had some left over and some stir fry left over from yesterday, so for supper I had Duck and vegetable in black bean sauce for supper. No leftovers for tomorrow.
  11. Killing for God

    Sorry, I don't understand. Where do you find that in the scripture?

    @Jim_Alaska Jim, when i was looking at fish in the freezer dept of a supermarket, I saw some which was just labelled White Fish. When I looked closer it said it was Alaskan Pollock. Do you know what this fish is like? It was about ½ the price of any other fish.

    Yesterday I did paella. I added a good pinch of saffron but although I could taste it there was very little colour. Today when I took the leftover out of the fridge it was bright yellow. This evening I did stirfry vegetables in blackbean sauce with egg fried rice.

    Today I had salmon for lunch with baked potato and roast vegetables. It was a large fillet I had in the freezer which I was keeping for when somebody comes, but nobody did. so I did it today, Still got enough for another two meals, and there is still one salmon side in the freezer.

    Grasshoppers and locusts are scriptural. I wouldn't eat them, though, but my cat likes eating grasshoppers.
