TGR Worzel's Combi Cottage Pie Français

It is time for another recipe I think.

As usual, this is slightly tongue in cheek, but I have genuinely made this dish for my lunch today. I scoffed the lot and it was absolutely delicious. Even if I do say so myself...!

Like my Curried Toad in the Hole it is based on another traditional English dish, Cottage Pie, but I've introduced a continental twist.

As the name implies, Combi Cottage Pie Français is designed to be cooked in a combi oven, or even a basic microwave with grill.

It is a healthy combination of protein, carbohydrate and dietary fibre, which will definitely keep you going all day...

I very nearly found myself in a hugely embarrassing situation today, trapped inside the building where I was fitting a new push-button door lock.

The old lock had failed and when I took it apart yesterday I discovered that it was beyond quick and easy repair. A new lock was required. I managed to find one that was the same approximate size, so it was theoretically a straightforward job. An ideal way of spending an hour or so on a Sunday morning...

Three hours with James May...

Thanks to the technological wonder that is iPlayer, I have been able to sit down and watch all three episodes of James Mays Car's of the People this evening, back to back with only a short comfort break between each episode...

I think that is quite a good way of doing it, unless James May gets on your wick perhaps, as I became a lot more engrossed in what he was saying than if I'd waited a week between each episode.

So what do I think...?
