Right sorry, bottom right.

Wow, fantastic!

Good going!
So, how many people did that feed per meal, and how much was the initial joint of meat?
And how did you cook it?

I love your curry platter.

It was £8.38.
I slow cooked it with a load of sliced onions, which became the French onion soup, each meal had two servings, one each for 14yr old Dd and me.

I am not fit to stand before you....

I love everything you've done and I esp like the idea of the metal platter dish for the curry night. Where did you get it?

You are my heroine! I love your food threads. I want to eat every one of those dishes - they look so professionally presented. Even when my food tastes lovely, it still looks very DIY.

bimandbam Sun 28-Feb-16 12:16:16

Wow they all look fantastic and really professional. I think I have done well if I remember to freeze leftovers for my mum!

IHaveBrilloHair Sun 28-Feb-16 12:34:27

Thank you, I'm just a home cook, but I love playing about in the kitchen and meal planning.
I got the curry dish from Amazon.

How did you make the French onion soup, please?

IHaveBrilloHair Sun 28-Feb-16 15:32:57

In this case it was just the onions and stock from the meat, but if making from scratch I use Delias recipe.

SealSong Sun 28-Feb-16 15:50:14

That is seriously impressive, Brillo!

Love the presentation of the dishes too. You should write a blog or something.

IHaveBrilloHair Sun 28-Feb-16 16:01:41

I had one, I got bored with it!
There's so many out there that unless it's really brilliant not many people read them, and what I really wanted was to chat about food and share ideas and that wasn't happening.
I belong to a few FB groups now to chat/share photos etc, have even made friends that way.

Thanks, we often have slow cooker brisket but never thought of doubling it up with onion soup, great idea.

I love the way you present your meals. They look so appealing!

Brillo, do you have a blog? (and another cool username that I can please have)

oldlaundbooth Tue 01-Mar-16 01:28:47

Just seen your comment up thread, couldn't see it on phone.

You should do threads like these more often, very inspiring.
