Please remind me



Please remind me not to eat 2/3 of the dish of cauliflower cheese just because Mr J is working late. And he doesn't eat cauliflower cheese anyway. So I've eaten 1/3 too many and will have to stay up for another 4 hours for it to digest!

My ideal meal when Mr J is out? Tuna Mornay! Just thinking about all the things I don't make anymore because he doesn't eat it: mornay, tuna patties, grilled chops... everything my 70s childhood existed on!

However he does adore my roasts, shepherd's pie, schnitzel and pasta, so he can't be all bad!

(Yes, we aren't very posh nosh!)

Could someone please remind me not to take on any 'homework'? I've done some transcription, newsletters, generally ill-advised publication work. I've been sitting on some pretty straight-forward certificates for an educational association, for about - oh, I don't know - six weeks? And have neatly glided to the deadline and got it done. Oh please tell me next time to say no. The money doesn't warrant the angst.

I've just quit my job for a similar reason!

It is hard to say no, isn't it? I think though that sometimes we are better for it!

I love tuna mornay. Luckily it is one of the things Mr HB will eat ... but there is a very extensive list of things that he will not!

You can't go past a good tuna mornay-and yours looks super delicious!

Mmmm, yummy yummy. I love that 1970s homestyle cooking too, especially cauilflower cheese and tuna mornay!

I wonder what it is about the beloved being away that makes us over eat, I've just done that too, and am feeling slightly sick now.

Yumm - tuna mornay. Funny that you say that DH would not eat it - I never cooked it because I thought that my DH would turn his nose up to it. But I cooked some the other night and stuffed it into baked potatoes and served it with salad - yumm - it was a hit. Even Baden had some with mashed potato. Will definitely be making that again.

posh nosh is for people with spare time (or cleaners)! I love a good tuna mornay, especially in winter. The man-friend in this house eats what I cook or goes without, although he does allude to a strong dislike of cauliflower cheese (something lacking in his upbringing perhaps?)

Ooh please publish your recipe for Tuna Mornay!

My little boy is dairy intolerant, as is Mr Bell. And every dish I love includes cheese, aargh!
