Ventured out to my local farm shop yesterday and picked up a ’cowboy’ steak weighing in at just over 0.9kg.

Seared in a pan and finished in the oven with a temperature probe - served with salt and pepper wedges, and a blue cheese and mushroom sauce. I am now barely able to function due to a meat coma.
Looks superb and for me the steak is cooked to perfection.

Dad?
Remember the brokky/cauli pasta cheese bake when I was a kid..my favourite?
Me: Aye?
Him: Have one done for 6pm for 4.
Me: It's just 3 of us.
Him: Bringing a mate.
Me. How about YOU "do one"?
Him.
I'm picking your Nursing Home OK?
Me. Oh...aye right. See you 1800 hrs.
Him. Correct response.

" Dont forget the garlic bread slices & garlic oil/ balsamic dips Dad."
Cheeky shite.

Edit:
Actually it's our first post lockdown traditional Sunday Family dinner.
And he knows it. ;) He's a brill boy.

It's a compliment really, you can obviously make a decent fist of this cooking malarkey or he'd get a takeaway!

My two quite often remind me of this.
My usual response is..
"I'm planning on selling up when I retire and blowing your inheritance on cocaine and hookers."
 
It's the equity in the house and my works pension.
Right now I'm rich in assets but cash poor.
I'm hoping someone will invent a a way of owning your house, but still having full use of the capital tied up in it, that isn't a rip off. What's the point of having hundreds of thousands of pounds to your name that you can never spend?

To hot for a roast so had a salad. The darker tomatoes are a variety I grew called Rosella, they have a unique taste being sweet and sharp at the same time and I can recommend them.

Mother_mush wasn't that a fantastic cook, but one of the things that she taught me was to add the 'top of the milk' to a pan of bolognese sauce

A phrase oft spouted by my mother when there was fruit for afters was "there's no cream but you can have the top off the milk".

I always add a splash of milk to a pan of courgette or mushroom soup.
I would use cream, but I never buy it so never any in the hoose!
