Anna has a fab giveaway over on her blog from CPS Stores in America.

I know a few of you reading my blog are keen cooks so I wanted to share this link with you.I’m like Anna my voucher would go towards a “Dutch oven”.Quite why Americans call casserole dishes this,I have no idea.

Although I could do with a decent frying pan.Since we’ve had our aga,I have been without one.Hubby the other day cooked an omelette in a wok!We have to have special bases on our pans because of the heat of the Aga.You can cook fried eggs,etc directly on the hot plates ,but an omelette would get a bit messy.And I don’t do mess!!!!



O hby the way,this isn’t me! I found the picture on the internet to show you someone frying eggs.




Anna also shares a recipe for a marrow,ginger and chilli chutney,along with some free downloadable  bits and bobs.Now I won’t be making any chutney.I don’t eat vegetables,cold meat or cheese so there is little point in me toiling over something that will sit in the back of the larder maturing………

When I was first married I used to bottle and pickle everything in sight.We had shelves of the stuff.I was like an Amish housewife.I think I used to watch too much Little House on the Prairie as a child.Because there was only Hubby to eat it all and he wasn’t that keen.
