Maybe Queenie was holding up a jar of said ingredient and pointing at it at the time Dubious, thereby making her grammar correct []

Queenie respectfully points out that she did admit to writing ungrammatically.

She thought the colloquialism would enable the less-abled to understand her post. []

It probably is easy - if you know what half the ingredients are, and could obtain them. [] []

Anyway, Celebrían asked for soup recipes, and this is a great favorite in our household. It acquired its name when Brat was a toddler.

Eeyore's Soup

Serves 6

1 oz butter
1 medium leek
2 carrots
2 medium potatoes
6 oz red lentils
2.5 pints vegetable stock (you can use chicken)
salt and black pepper

1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Peel and chop the veg, add to the butter and sauté gently for a few minutes to soften them. Add the lentils.

2. Gradually stir in the stock, and bring to a simmer. Cover the pan, and cook for 45 minutes, or until the lentils are tender. Remove from heat.

3. Purée the soup in a blender. Check the seasoning, and add salt and pepper if required. Return to (washed) pan, and reheat.

4. Serve with lashings of garlic croutons.

This soup freezes very well - if it lasts long enough.

Well, we're still eating soup anyway!

Hobbiton Bean and Vegetable Soup

1 large onion, peeled and chopped
2 tabs oil (preferably olive)
15 oz can beans (cannellini are best), drained
2 carrots, diced
2 potatoes, diced
3 courgettes, sliced
15 oz can chopped tomatoes
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1-2 tabs fresh basil, chopped
1 ¾ pints veg. stock or water
2 oz small pasta shapes
salt and pepper

Sauté onion in the oil for 5 minutes. Then add the beans, all the vegetables, and the garlic, and cook for a further 5 minutes.

Add the stock, cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes.

Add the pasta and basil and cook for a further 10 minutes.

Season to taste.

Grated cheese is yummy on top of this; and if you're really hungry, serve with hot rolls. It is very filling though.

I use masses more garlic, and no salt at all. If you use dried basil, then add 1 teasp. with the veggies.

I think that you colonials call a courgette a zucchini (sp?).

Although baby corgi would add a certain je ne sais quoi to the dish. []

A seasonal treat with an Eastern feel. It is actually a traditional Indian recipe and I sampled it on many an occassion on my travels around that wonderous country []

Easter Egg Curry

2 Tbsp Vegetable oil
1 Tsp Black mustard seed
1 Tsp Cumin seeds
1 inch stick of cinnamon
3 or 4 green cardomons
3 or 4 cloves
1 large or 2 small bay leaves
1 inch cube fresh ginger root, peeled and mashed into a pulp
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and mashed into a pulp
1 large onion halved and thinly sliced
1 Tbsp Garam masala
1 Tsp Turmeric
1/2 Tsp ground black pepper
1/4 Tsp Chilli powder
1lb can of chopped tomatoes or a pound of fresh tomatoes with skin removed.
4 hard boiled eggs (shells removed [] )

1- Heat oil until very hot and add mustard and cumin seeds.
2- When they start popping add cinnamon, cardomons, colves and bay leaves. Stir for about 10 seconds or until you can smell them.
3- Add the ginger, garlic and onion and cook until the onion becomes soft. This usually takes a few minutes.
4- Add garam masala, termeric, black pepper and chilli powder. Keep stirring to mix the spices all together and to release the natural oils and aromas for a couple of minutes.
5- Add the tomatoes and stir in well.
6- Gently simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes stirring every few minutes.
7- Place hard boiled eggs in sauce whole and leave to stand. A couple of hours is good and then reheat before serving with Aloo Gobi, pilau or basmati rice and chapatis

Sheer heaven! []

The Easter Egg Curry sauce tastes excellent, Wetwang!
I can make the recipe at night, and heat it quickly for breakfast the morning after.

Rosie Cotton's Home-made Lemonade

(Quick and easy, so that she can make it in between caring for her 271 children.. [] )

4 lemons
A big glass bowl
A kettle full of water
Some white sugar
Extra lemon juice if needed

1. Put t'kettle on.
2. Peel the lemons with a small, sharp knife, and cut the bits of peel into thin strips. If you have a zester, use that instead.
3. Put the peel into the bowl, and pour the boiling water from the kettle onto the peel.
(At this point, the smell of lemon oil floats through the entire house, causing good karma, good chi and making everyone happy [] )
4. Stir a bit, and then leave until it's lukewarm.
5. Cut the peeled lemons in half, and squeeze the juice into the bowl. Chuck the squeezed halves in for good measure.
6. Add sugar and extra lemon juice to taste, and stir occasionally until completely cool.
7. Get a clean tea-towel and rinse it in cold water. Wring out until the towel is damp but not dripping, and no longer smells of washing liquid.
8. Strain the lemonade through the towel. This makes about 1 1/2 litres, so you will need to use a big saucepan.
9. Store in the 'fridge or in a cool cupboard.

Athene's Reprehensible Margaritas

Make as above, but with 4 lemons and 4 limes to the same amount of water. When cool, put a generous slug of gold tequila in a glass, and top up with lemon-lime mix. Put a little glup of blue curacao into the glass so that it sinks to the bottom. Salt optional.

It's when you turn the bottle up enough for some to come out and for it to go "glup".

I would have thought that was obvious.
