Dear all, hope you are OK? We keep seeing on the News about the heat in the US, you should come here and moan about the non stop rain!
Love to all and keep cool. More ice in your drinks Cherie, or more drinks in your ice! Rolling on the floor laughing

Dear Nancy, they are quite lovely aren't they? I have not seen Cayeux at Chelsea for some time, so it was nice to see them back with some new plants!
Hope you are well, I have just been speaking to Apple Mac and I was not to polite!

Dear Linda, everyone on this cubit is special and I sometimes forget to ask how people are. So how are you? I know this is not a busy cubit, but for those that do see it they get some pictures of what other people do not! I have never liked pizza since having the worst one of my life in ITALY of all places; so I asked the Lady in the Italian shop and she gave me a recipe for the dough, it is fantastic and easy to make as well. We had some pizzas made with it last night straight from the oven with a couple of bottles of German wine, oh boy it was stunning! How can they charge so much in fast food places for something that is so simple and easy to make? Now my parents want to try it, so I am cooking for them tomorrow, and the good thing is about it you can have exactly your own favourite toppings on it. Not that I eat from fast food outlets, just wonder at the prices!
I grow fresh Basil, so that is the Ladies from the shop secret in the sauce and it is wonderful. Tomato's and Basil a marriage made in heaven itself.
Group hug
Neil.

I am doing fine, Thanks. Just hot, we finally got some rain yesterday and today, so today it is only 85 degree's.
Nothing like home made pizza with your choice of toppings!

Dear Linda, we are cold here and everyone is depressed with coming up for four months of rain! A couple of days at the Chelsea Flower Show and half a day at Hampton Court it stopped raining (just)!
You cannot get to the garden, as you need waders in the water!
Glad you are OK, and yes pizza is brilliant with all your own stuff.
Group hug

Bob and I love pizza, Neil.

I like a thicker crust the Bob, so we have it thin. Rolling on the floor laughing

What I like on the top is plenty of sauce, caramelized onions, green peppers, green olives, anchovies, pepperoni and a good dose of cheese. How does that sound? I bet you can figure out what Bob likes!!!!!

Hugs to all,

Nancy

Dear Nancy, you can make thin or deep crust with this Italian recipe straight from mama as she is known. I like deeper ones as I like to have some left over as I like them cold as well!
Olives are only fit for making olive oil, if you must! I do not use Mozzarella on mine either, for I prefer good farmhouse mature or vintage English Cheddar! I do use a lot of peppers and Elephant garlic as well, which I grow. Vine tomato's from my friend are perfect for making a sauce, with fresh basil! Black pepper is essential as are a couple or more bottles of wine, i thought you may agree with that bit! Rolling on the floor laughing
We are both Chefs so this may amuse you or not. i have been looking up the recipes from all the Royal Palaces as they are on the internet and available to all. Hampton Court Palace recipes are on there from 1497 AD, and it is astonishing. For King Henry VIII had a budget of £66,000 a month in the 1500s just for food, wine and women of course. That is £6 million a month nowadays, which is quite a lot!
There is a recipe on there for Gooseberry tart with Saffron, and for those who cannot read old English, it is translated into English but not US English!
It states get two large ladles of Saffron, and then they have worked it out as the kitchens still exist, that is half a pound of Saffron! You would need to sell your home to buy half a pound of Saffron, let alone make a tart from it!
Hugs.
Neil.

Wow, that is a hefty food budget!

Sorry your getting so much rain Neil. Sure hope it dries up for a bit for you.

What kind of wine are you drinking with your pizza?

Dear Linda, I thought that would make Nancy laugh as it is totally true and more than Nancy's food bill! Rolling on the floor laughing We are drinking the lovely German Liebfraumilch at the moment as it is on special offer at £4 for 2 bottles that is about $6, which is cheap enough to enjoy. I like German wine as some of it is better than French, although most things are nowadays! Californian wine is really coming on as well as Australian.
Long live proper pizzas.

p.s. The sun has got its hat on, and it is 55F which is warm for us at the moment, although it says it will rain later!

We are going into the 90F for the weekend, not happy as too hot for me to work outdoors. Could use a bit of rain. Middle daughter & her family are in London at the moment. Her girls are 8 & 10. From pictures they were on the London Eye & were at the Tower. At that age I wonder how much will stick in their minds. One rain picture.

Dear Lucy, yes the photo is on here and thank you! I wish you had told me that your daughter and family was in London, as I would have most gladly met them and been a guide!
I am very polite and a Gentleman, and I do love children. Despite some people wishing for me to go to the Tower for other reasons, Nancy, Muriel and Cherie stop laughing!
Unfortunately most of Greenwich park is closed at the moment for the Horses, although if they are into gardening and history some bits are still open.
Hyde Park is a must even in the rain, and the sun is still out today!
I trust you are well?
Regards.
Neil.
p.s. A picture, albeit old of Oliver when he was sensible! Then a miracle, as Sarah managed to take my camera card to work, and get all the pictures back from Hampton Court Flower Show!
Seen Lupins like this?
