    It could all have been so different, if you'd chosen the right pies.......

    Homemade Pizzas

    We were talking about getting a pizza delivery today. I love them but the salt content in high st delivery pizza is massive. it plays havoc with me. Someone suggested we make our own pizzas. My youngest daughter (age 19) offered to make the pizzas. (four of us) This would be a first, but she's a pretty good cook She made the dough and tomato base from scratch. I took a few pics: Tomato base, mozzarella, baby tomato, sauteed mushroom, ricotta and spinach tomato base, sliced cooked butchers pork sausage, mozzarella, ham, baby tomato Tomato base, mature cheddar cheese, sauteed onion/red pepper/red chilli/mushroom, spicy pepperoni, ham. Tomato base, mozzarella, sauteed chorizo, spicy pepperoni, ham This is how they looked cooked: These were really tasty incredibly thin Crispy around the edge, slightly gooey in the middle....delish!

    One question for everybody: Are you willing to pay any more tax than you actually have to?

    I couldn't be happier with mine, even the looks have grown on me
  10. I use one of these to make pure water for a marine aquarium. Four stage - floss, carbon, RO, de-ionise. Using a TDS (total disolved solids) meter on the water it produces, you get a reading of 0.00 - 0.02 ppm. I also use this water for RCM duties. As well as cooking, hot drinks etc. They are only about £50 for all of the pure water you need.

    I remember meeting you Martin, you came to Adam's when he was having a bake-off, must have been about 6 years back. If memory serves, you were picking up an OTL tube amp.

    Pie order thread !

    Yes, this is what you've all been waiting for the Nelsons Melton Mowbray Pork Pie order thread. They now only come in three sizes: (unless you want a bigger one ) 1 pound - £4.00 1.5 pound - £6.50 2 pounds - £8.50 I know most of you also love the Pattesons Chutney to accompany your pie - it's £2.85 a jar this year. Stick your pie/chutney order down here and collect/pay on show day from the Simpson Room - at the end of the corridor on the first floor. I'm hoping the order will be sufficiently large again to obtain a discount of 20% from Nelsons, this will be added to the money Wayne collects from the Show Raffle and donated to MIND.
