I love soup. My sister makes an amazing pot of homemade soup. I haven't made it in ages.

Cacoethes 07-01-2017 05:31 PM

I really should start cooking. There are loads of good looking recipes on the slimming world website. I should have a look through them.

Oooo cheesy pasta!! Yum!!
Soup is great too!

What kind of noodles are you having Lorraine?

Same-my mum and grandma still make epic soup plus grandma=home made bread as a side so doubly epic!

Sounds good Beckie, what sorts of things are they posting recipes for?

I'm hoping a few months down the line to start making a few simple things myself.

Am also curious about the noodles :P

Sketchy 07-01-2017 05:54 PM

It's just a packet of Thai noodles. Too lazy to do any proper cooking today.

I'm making stir fry, only takes like 10 mins which is good if feeling tired.

Cacoethes 07-01-2017 06:50 PM

My mum used to make home made bread a lot. Can't beat some home made bread and butter while its still warm from the oven! Nom!
They have recipes for basically everything on the slimming world website! There are pages and pages to look through! They also sell loads of different recipe books at the group.

Instant noodles are a good lazy meal!
I have these mug shot things that I have for lunch. Chicken and sweetcorn noodles and all you have to do is add hot water and wait 5 mins. I love them. Not big enough to have for dinner but a good lunch thing!

Stir fry sounds nice!

I love making homemade bread! All the kneading is so therapeutic :P

Stir fry sounds nice!

How are you all this evening?

Cacoethes 07-01-2017 08:02 PM

I haven't made bread for years. Last time I made it was during a slightly energetic episode and I tried to make purple bread. It didn't turn out purple, just kind of marbled.

I'm ok thanks.
It was your date today wasn't it?

Serendipity. 07-01-2017 08:06 PM

Haha! Why would you want to make purple bread? Was it supposed to be purple due to the ingredients or just food colouring?

I had to cancel. Girl woes, I was dying. We're going to do it another time though. And I think I'm meeting someone else after work tomorrow.

Cacoethes 07-01-2017 08:10 PM

It seemed like a good idea at the time! Yay mania! :p
I just did a normal bread recipe but put a load of food colouring in it. I was disappointed with the lack of purpleness but it tasted good anyway! :)

Oh no! Sorry to hear that :(
That's cool! Hope It goes well!

Sketchy 07-01-2017 08:11 PM

I would love to try making soda bread.

Serendipity. 07-01-2017 08:16 PM

You should do it Lorraine!

Lol Beckie! Purple bread could be interesting :P

Thanks! I'm irrationally nervous!

Sketchy 07-01-2017 08:18 PM

Good luck Hannah.

Cacoethes 07-01-2017 08:20 PM

Sounds like a good idea Lorraine!!

When I was in adolescent unit we made bright green flapjacks. We used various food colourings (but not green, oddly enough) it turned out well because the staff didn't want them so we had them all to ourselves. The staff were always nicking our cakes!! :p

You'll be fine! It's always nerve wracking!
It gets easier though!

Serendipity. 07-01-2017 08:26 PM

Haha, perfectly normal Beckie :P I don't think I'd want to eat green flapjacks either!!!

Cacoethes 07-01-2017 08:35 PM

They tasted totally fine! But they didn't look great :p
They went kind of a metallic green. I don't think I could recreate that if I tried!! No idea what we did to them!

Sketchy 07-01-2017 10:42 PM

What's everyone up to now? I just watched casualty.

Cacoethes 07-01-2017 10:45 PM

I just watched casualty too. I'm very glad Seb decided to tell the truth!
I'm watching Taboo now. It's rather strange!

Serendipity. 07-01-2017 10:46 PM

What is Taboo?

I haven't watched Casualty in ages!

Sketchy 07-01-2017 10:46 PM

I'm glad too. Poor Dylan.
