Family Dinner

The boiled English dinner at the Nexus last night was yummy. It was a "one pot meal" where you toss all of the ingredients (corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, string beans, and spices) in one pot with water, mix and boil until tender. It was very good.

The desert turned out better than I thought it would. The spotted dick tasted kind of like warm raisin bran. It wasn't bad. The sticky toffee pudding, on the other hand, was amazingly good. I mean, wow! I'm going to have to get it again for sure.

I am really starting to like doing this weekly or every other week home cooked meal with friends. As a single person, I don't eat home cooked meals too often. It's too much work. But, cooking for friends is a lot more fun.
