The rules of Hell Week are that I can't use onions, tomatoes, bacon, cheese or tomatoes in anything. The onions rule extends to leeks, spring onions, shallots etc. but I don't think Dr Phil mentioned garlic when he suggested Hell Week so I am allowing myself this.
Nasty Dr. Phil knew what he was doing by suggesting I can't use any of these things - mainly as quite a lot of things I cook involves them. I think there are several recipes that are almost exclusively these things - a bit of olive oil and you've got a fine pasta topping or the makings of a great pizza.
Never mind, I shall have to forgo them for a week and make do without. Maybe I should think of a nasty thing for this
tricksy Welshman to do for a week to get my revenge - no leeks, daffodils, cockles or lava perhaps... No, too easy, how about
a whole week without sausages...now there's a challenge no Welshman could ever manage.
A Strawberry Croissant: I know I've had croissants on my blog before, but not a pre-stuffed factory made strawberry one. From Kwik Save and not too good at all - very artificial tasting.
