Cowart's Common Room
Jackdaw Post

J was not feeling up to cooking supper this evening so I was left to my own devices. So I made a dish of fried shallots and mushrooms with garlic on a bed of Tagliatelli covered in a thin Bechamel sauce and garnished with fresh tomatoes and parsley. Twenty minutes from start to finish and most excellent though I say it myself. There were some slices of leek as well and a squirt of Tabasco and spoons of Creme Fraiche and Dijon Mustard in equal proportions. Actually only the Tagliatelli was covered in the sauce and it was a thin sauce just enough to make the Tagliatelli moist and succulent. No doubt others could cook it better but I don't think it would be out of place in Montelbanoland.

(Sorry to inflict the above on you, but I wanted to write down what I had done before forgetting it).

I have to be up bright and early tomorrow for we are heading up to Town to participate in what everyone hopes will be a peaceful and dignified protest among like-minded souls of the Remain persuasion. So I may not have time to do a Lark Post. I've done my moan about the Jackdaws, the next time I shall moan about my pink Petunias. SadSad

Lampworkbeader's Avatar Good luck with your protest Fennie. The whole prospect of what is to come fills me with deepest gloom.

Camilla's Avatar Thank you for posting Fennie.

Your supper sounds delicious all ingredients that I love apart from the Tobasco. I made Macaroni cheese dish this evening with Italian toms added to the cheese sauce I made, then grilled and served with hot crusty bread.

Best of luck for tomorrow with the protest Fennie, it has it seems to me gone on for ages now.

What's up with your pink Petunias Fennie?Very Happy

Fairy Nuff's Avatar Your Tagliatelle sounds lovely Fennie, HO does most of our cooking and rarely takes more than 20 minutes to make dinner unless we're on holiday, then he gets to play and takes great delight in taking all afternoon to do something delicious with a chunk of venison etc.

The prospect of what is to come up here has changed hugely - I suspect if we have another independence vote it won't be nearly so close as last time but will be a resounding "Tìoraidh ma-tha!" and we'll be leaving you all to get on with it.Neutral

Fennie's Avatar I fear you are right and yet I am wondering whether they will give me a Scottish EU passport and whether my children and grandchildren will therefore be able to claim Scottish passports. Would make life simpler for them if they want the same sort of wandering career that I have had. Very Happy

What does Tìoraidh ma-tha mean? And how do you pronounce it?

Fairy Nuff's Avatar It's pronounced "Cheery ma ha" and means "Bye then!"
I suspect "Mach a Seo" may be banded about too then, literally "Out of here" colloquially "bogger aff!" Very Happy

I haven't had a passport since 1990 - I won't be in a rush to renew it until this is all sorted.Neutral
