Bridge is an epic game. I used to play it in secondary school, as my school had an international level player and we formed a club around him (he played with a player from another school for competitions). Don't ever think it is a game for timid old people, it is a game for old people who have cast off all inhibitions and will stab you with their mind powers in order to win a trick. I can't wait to hear how ye got on! I was always pretty terrible at it tbh, but it was a lot of fun.
If you guys like it you should try 45 as well, which i have always loved.
#PhoneyClubWeakNT (That was the bidding system we used, we had to declare it before each game as it was not the bidding system used by any of the schools we played against).(it probably didn't have a hashtag 20 years ago). (obvs it means that if we opened with clubs it meant we were strong in the major suits, and we bid on NT with hands a lot weaker than most bidding systems, obvs).

Oh Man, i loved those SHannara books when i was young. Despite that, i misremembered them as the Magic Kingdom For Sale series which i also loved.

Lasagne is great with something crunchy on the side, as i do think it can lack texture oftentimes.
The fog was thick, tendrils as solid as hair curled about his horses flanks, but the horseman was on a mission to save the princess and rode bravely forth.
USually happens on my first day joining a new church too.
This is Marco (Marconi). He is long dead, but he was a good dog. Also, we are pretty sure he was gay and he had companion pillows.

Guys, what goes on top of the lasagne? i got so confused and i put noodles on top and they all curled up and burned, but they were also really tasty and crispy like that so it was a win.
Everyone makes such firmer lasangeas than me! I always liked them a little freeform^^
They both look great! I would be apprehensive about the black bean one to be honest. I would love that mix just with some rice and a little more spicing though!
Ah, it will host all my steam installs.

Sweet. Is it Fates and Furies I or Fates and Furies VII though? Or one of the inbetweens which aren't as good?
So, round 2, and this one has much leftovers so it will be the final round^^
This one has 2 layers of a simple tomato sauce - onion, tinned tomatoes, a little bacon which was wholly unnecessary, but needed to be used to, some wine and oregano - and 1 layer of a spinach, musroom mix with some creme frais and cheese to bind it, and more wine. It was really tasty! I'm gonna be looking at getting spinach into more pasta dishes from now on!
Windows isn't happy with my harddrive. What would be a good 2TB internal HD to go for these days?
Since i liked the flavours of my dinner yesterday so much, i'm gonna try this tomorrow:
Not sure i can find all the cheese in my coeliac book, but if all else fails i'll just use some creme frais and parmasean:D

I'd say any wide pasta would do. In the comments for the recipe they suggest tagliatelle or fettuccine. Tbh, cooking the sheets like that is pretty annoying as they stick together and fall apart easily (though maybe that is the gluten free past i'm using).
Here is the inspiration i took last night, their photographer miiiight be slightly more skilled than I!
Edit: ya, it is something i have made before with more traditional lasagna fillings. I find the whole stacking and baking malarky a bit much, and this gets food on the table a lot quicker and in more managable portions! I use broken lasagne sheets like you would any other pasta sometimes as well, especially since there is always one or two left behind after using them.
Edit again, here is the last lasagne I made, end of August around:
So, i didn't feel like baking, so i made an open lasagne. Two layers of sauteed mushrooms with bacon, wine and garlic and a middle layer of spinach with creme frais. It was delicious, if difficult to photograph.

Cool, thanks. I was just wonder. For me, making a vege meal is enough of a departure from my normal that i wouldn't really even think to use a substitute.
Do you tend to use stuff like TVP in your cooking? I was just reading the intro to my book and he was saying he wasn't a fan. Is it kind of a shortcut to texture, or a way to sub into non-bege dishes easily?
Guys, the recipe that SBM used has calvo nero or kale in it. Is calvo nero less punchy than kale? i can barely handle kale, so i'd like something a bit easier on me!
A week seems fine, but im sure there would be times I miss it then! Maybe every 2 weeks would be better. If someone wants they can just make a 2nd different lasagna in the 2nd week:P
I like everyone's ideas. Sounds cool to have a suggested dish and then allow us to make our own interpretations of it! Ima gonna make a lasagna This weekend now!
And hi chrissy. Did you join just for the foods?
I always par boil the lasagne sheets to make, even when it says not too. Looks good!
Maybe solicit people and make up a rota. Every 2 weeks a new person puts forward a recipe, that we all then cook? Also, you want to keep this veggie? I'm fine with that, but I don't think I could handle vegan!
I solicit me!
Edit: how did you make your roux without butter? Maybe some cornflour or arrowroot would be been the way to go to thicken it.
