stratson
Am still trying to puzzle out what to make for tonight>>>>Decisions! Decisions!
Last night we had a beef casserole with doughballs, usual carrot, turnip and onions and mash potatoes. My son had dessert.
Am going out shortly, think I will get some fresh salmon, will dig up some of my early spuds, and bring some lettuce and rocket, right, that's the menu for tonight.. Don't always have dessert. smile.gif
jaybee
Stratson, can you give me your recipe for doughballs please? Do you use Artora beef suet???? Would love to make them like my old grannie used to. They were magic. Tonight we are having pot roast with carrots and turnip. Jaybee
stratson
Hi Jaybee>>>My recipe for doughballs>>>>>
I buy a packet of Mix "Original"
"Goldenfry" Brand,
Farmhouse style Dumplings.Light and Fluffy, Directions are on pack,. afraid I cheat and take the easy route. rolleyes.gif
I will however get the proper recipe with Atora suet. Will get back to you later(If you can buy a packet of Atora suet the recipe is on side of the pack.)
wellfield
You're making me hungry--I'm om the 4th day of the cabbage soup diet--cabbage soup every day for 7 days.
stratson
jaybee, here is the recipe for your dumplings(doughballs)
100gr ofS.R.Flour,

50gr,(2ozs)suet

Pinch of saalt,

Cold water, appr. 5Tablespoons.enough to make a firm but pliable dough.

1. Mix the flour, suet and salt with the water,
2, Divide doughinto 8 balls with floured hands,

3, Place on top of simmeringstew or casserole. Cover with a tight fitting lid and
cook for 20 mins.

Enjoy!!! smile.gif
stratson
See that cabbage diet wellfield, hope it works for you.
You can really diet eating what you like, so long as you count your calories.
A female can have 1,000, a male 1,500, you can have a good meal with that amount,
.
Hope ye like cabbage! What kind are you eating??? smile.gif

biggrin.gif yesterday went out for a drive with my sister and ended up in the Mandarin resturant in Burlington and had a terrific meal there and today,

Aye' stuarty you said it!!!
Heather
Stratson your recipe for Dough Balls is the way I make them, although it's a while since I made them. The easy way to remember the recipe was; twice the amount of flour to suet.

I never knew you could get ready mixed dough balls with just the water to add.

Angel, whats perrogies???????????
jaybee
Stratson, thanks a million. The next time I am in Glasgow (October), I will pick up some of the packaged ones to try too, as well as the Atora. I think I can bring the Atora back in my suitcase, well I will try anyway. There is nothing remotely similar we can buy here and the suet is just horrible. Looking forward to trying both, and thanks again. Jaybee
penny dainty
Hi Jaybee , I might be wrong in assuming this , but isnt Atora made from beef fat?as I say I might be wrong.We cant get it here either.
My brother in law came over to OZ for a visit before we got Hellmans and he sneaked me two jars over inside his shoes, not the ones he was wearing I might add. laugh.gif

Angel, whats perrogies???????????

Heather , I buy perogies from the freezer section in the store, they are made from a mixture of flour and potatos, with either a bacon or cheese filling and they look like little white turnovers
or if you know what ravioli is, something like them,you boil the perogies for about 4or5 mins.and eat them with fried onions or sour cream, I,ve had them fried on occasion for breakfast.
I,m not sure but I think they maybe a polish dish..
penny dainty
They sound good Angel.
stratson
Re. Perogies Angel, I have Polish neighbours, will ask Ola and let you know?

Haven't even thought about the evening meal yet! laugh.gif
