          That does look good, especially the artichoke - love them!

          My entire weekend is built around cooking this year - we're taking a curry feast round to a friend's house tonight, so I spent most of yesterday making onion bhajis, in order to get flavoured oil, which I then used to make loads of curry gravy (about 15 litres of it- most destined for the freezer). This involved the use of a pressure cooker - which is new, and scares me, because I'm not used to them! Anyway, it didn't explode (thank goodness) and I have my curry gravy!

          This morning I've started pre-cooking the lamb for one of the curries - that'll take a couple of hours, then I have chicken to pre-cook for another curry (think we're having lamb patia and chicken Madras), sheekh kebabs to make, some pakoras and dipping sauce, pilau rice (which can cool and get reheated when we arrive), cucumber raita, naan bread and poppodoms to get ready... and then I finally get to make the curries themselves, get changed, get it all packed up, and off we go

          Tomorrow I'm planning steak and kidney pie with mash and peas, and then a roast chicken for Monday. Not at all traditional, but lots of our favourites in there!

                            This looks delicious but I don't recognize many of the ingredients Maybe because I'm from the different part of the globe. What is the white thing?
