Like the last one, MDB — I have a lame pussy cat laying up in the front garden at the moment (possible broken left hind) who would enjoy that !
Sorry to hear about your cat Phil

Not mine, Mick — feral or stray — but I am putting out food regularly and he/she seems comfortable laying up here.  If I can get her sufficiently tame to allow me to pick her up, I will take her off to the local vet's to see what (if anything) can be done, but for now she seems in good condition, is slowly allowing the leg to become weight-bearing, and I saw her scratching with the injured hind today which is a good sign.

We were looking after a feral for about 2 years. Poor thing got hit by a car and had its rear leg dislocated. Took it to a vet but sadly there wasn’t anything they could do for it so we had to have it put to sleep

Great shame, Mick — sorry to hear that.  When we were in Kent we were adopted by a ginger cat, Jaffa.  Took him to the vet for a check-up, found he had a tumour at the top of his right leg, and amputation was recommended.  I was not convinced that it was in his best interests, but was persuaded by the surgeon that his quality of life would not be affected.  Sadly it was.  Given the same choice again, I would say "don't operate — let him have whatever time remains to him with four legs, don't seek to extend it with three".

Corned beef, mash potatoes, fried cabbage and bacon, baby peas, carrots, cauliflower and broccoli with white sauce.
Fried cabbage and bacon goes a treat with corned beef and white sauce.
Whiskey is the answer, but what was the question?

Kidney dry curry (Ranjit Rai).  Which turned out to be a complete and utter waste of time.  Not only did I have to cook two lots of onions / garlic / ginger / tomato (because the first batch was too dark and clearly never going to turn into the mild brown emulsion required), the final dish lacked any interest whatsoever.  I ended up putting the  kidney pieces into some left-over curry sauce — they were then OK, but nothing to write home about.  Recipe attached in case anyone else fancies having a go ...

A couple of beautiful filets picked up today and beer battered fries (as I’ve grown to call them since moving here)  :wink: no curry tonight, out of ginger & garlic paste.  28 C and sunny today so hard to summon the energy to make paste up.  A little chilled Riesling in the back yard and chill today.

This was last night's dinner.  Syed's 7 Curries and Rice.  Clockwise from the bottom. Vegetable Pasanda, Chicken Pasanda, Chicken Korma, Bombay Aloo, Chicken Madras, Butter Chicken, CTM.  Not shown Deep naan.

Photo taken before heating so the sauces are still cold and quite solid but you get the idea.  Delicious.

I know it's breakfast time over there but this was dinner just now. Dry White Toast.

Nah. Not really. Center plate is a Cauliflower rice Rosti. Some leftover turmeric rice and Basic Chicken Curry (Syed's), Syed's Chicken Bhuna / Rogan (2 curries 1 pan) and reheated Authentic Kashmiri Muslim Waza Rogan Josh. Delicious.  Curry Nirvana at last.

PS. Santa, the Syed Chicken Rogon may not be how you make Rogon Josh and it certainly isn't Authentic Kashmiri Lamb RJ, but you really do need to give this dish a go. It is great.
