Leeks and Daffodils--Happy Early Saint David's Day!

"Be joyful, and keep your faith and your creed. Do the little things that you have seen me do and heard about. I will walk the path that our fathers have trod before us."--Saint David

If you're American, chances are that March equals St. Patrick's Day.  Did you know, though, that each of the portions of the United Kingdom have a patron saint, and a local celebration of their unique culture and roots?

Two Chicken Week--Part 2, Pies and Casseroles

Two Chicken Week Part 1 here. 

 As long as there have been ovens, somebody, somewhere, has tried to invent something that would let them A) reuse leftovers that their family didn't want to eat, and B) make the evening meal and then walk away.  Meat pies and casseroles fit the bill.

Lemon Curd

Just had my first success with this, this past week, and I must say, I'm hooked.
