Cod is nice but unfortunately it is being over fished again i like all fish apart from tuna, not sure why.

My kids love a simple meal we call macaroni fireside supper,

Nice and simple pasta done with my own cheese sauce, now the beauty of this is the way its done

1layer of pasta then a layer of bacon then a layer of pasta layer of ham layer of pasta layer of egg layer of pasta then layered with mature cheese the sprinkle Parmesan cheese on the top cook in oven for 20 Min's.

nice and simple but very very filling

I really don't think we should be eating Cod due to the over fishing Very limited choice here though, considering what my family will eat. Trying to make ethical choices on food is no easy business.

Lamb is my favourite meat done with garlic and a nice herb sauce served with Jersey royals and garlic carrots and all the trimming and to start with a prawn chowder soup then home made strawberry cheese cake.

Best lamb is when you have cooked it it just falls of the bone and malts in your mouth.

i totally agree lamb should fall apart off the bone and due to the over fishing i dont eat a lot of cod i hav'nt had it for at least 6 months.

my favourite way to cook lamb if in a large pan and the lamb shounld be sorrounded with thyme, parsley, garlic and one onion.

have way into cooking i add my new pototoes (skins on) and if i am cooking it with root vegitables i add those also leave to roast

to make the gravy i remove the meat potatoes and other vegitables and use the juices from the roasting dish to make the gravy.
with lamb i like red wine gravy so i put the roasting dish over the hob and heat it the i add a tsp of salt and half tsp sugar and two glasses of red wine then i boil it untill it reduces down into a rich gravy

by dopind this every part of the meal has the lamb and herb flavours

The beauty with fireside supper is also it is wide open to add what you like, half of my kids dont like egg so i normally only put egg in one side, but as i said you can add what you like, because it is layer it looks good and is very filling and so simple to make, even the cheese sauce is just cornflower, butter, black pepper, milk, cheese and grated cheese.

It take about 20 Min's to make and 20 Min's to cook.

But as admin has said it all about tying new things, we made one with fish in mashed potato and sweetcorn.

The other thing my kids love to do is make our own bread,now bear in mind i have 6 kids ages between 2-15 and each one like to try something better than their siblings, so here is a brief list of what we have tyred.

Chocolate bread, smartie bread, coconut bread, raisin bread, marmite bread, honey bread, peanut butter bread, banana bread, and once and only once sweetcorn bread (dont ask kids minds for you)

my god! you have been a busy boy...

marmite bread? i cant stand the smell of the stuff,let alone the taste!
yesterday for my final GCSE product in food tech i made garlic and herb bread and before that i made bolanaise bread (bread wioth tomatos, herbs and vegitables and meat in it with cheese on top) which may i add was a disaster as it was too heavy and all filling sunk to bottem! lol

weirdest thing i have ever appemted to make : chocolate cola cake (grandads recipe which i adapted to fit my needs) it is very nice.

We cheat and use a breadmaking machine for standard bread, though I do make quite a few flatbreads manually.

Problem with manual breadmaking is it does take a lot of time

We head out in about an hour, provides a chance to visit a farm shop on route as well. So will get some decent veg as well

Fun part will be trying to get it all in the freezers

Sounds very nice.

All we ended up having was bangers and mash

Some of our pork came in the form of sausages. We will actually make some of our own with some of the rest.
