I'll see your creamery butter, though "some" sounds too little - but I'd propose a topping of Oak-smoked Shannon Salmon (fished by hand-grenade.... the only way!) and a field mushroom soup - made (unsurprisingly) of fresh field mushrooms cooked with onion in rendered bacon fat and then mashed with cream to a soup, with pepper to taste. (if a recipe tells you to use lemon juice, or garlic, or "creme fraiche", ask yerself "What would mammy say??"). What about Cholesterol, you say? Never met the man - but he's welcome to join us!!
That sounds pretty bloody good right now to be fair.

Yeah, I talked myself into a freezer feast - no salmon, unfortunately, but soda bread and the soup makings freeze a dream - a drop of cream (of course I have some!) and in a few minutes you have close to perfection soup...... the bread takes a while longer to defrost ...... a bit far to fly, eh?
One thing that isn't conventional though is a nice glass of Shiraz to go with it (I don't have a Guinness pump in the house....)

I was planning on a whistle-stop tour of them all next week but my good mates George and Amal (full names held back to protect their privacy) advised me of the protest, so I shall be staying home.

Wonder if they are the same George and Amal who told me the same, coincidence or what?

Lack of dental coverage and high cost of dental work and perfectly fixable tooth having to be removed. (not my tooth, my wife's)

Hope something worked - after my op, I remember being singularly unimpressed with the morphine, though I suspect the dosage would be different.
Cancer is a bitch, best kept at arm's length. If your Dad is prepared, then I hope his suffering will pass quickly - and I hope you will gain comfort from an end to his pain.
