    Yes, Grannymar, Steph and I will not eat this Goulash without parsnips. Will it be ruined if you put parsnips in it?

    AND, we will each have a Gin and Tonic in a tall glass; For dessert…I think a small Baked Alaska would go down well.

    It’s your turn now, Steph. What else would you like with this meal GM is making for us?

    Steph – I like the Goulash with boiled potatoes and often a green veg on the side.

    Nancy – I am sure parsnips would do no harm in this recipe. I’ll join you in the G&T, Will you make it by Seven?

    WWW – Now there is another option for Steph! I usually have a bottle of something open in the kitchen and add a splash even when not stated!

    “Nancy, I fancy a bit of Toyboy on the side…. ”

    You sound like the two old ladies who were climbing over a barbed wire fence. One was going over the fence with her leg high in the air and she said,”Wow, I feel like a Marine” and the other lady said,” Oh, I’d take a soldier or a sailor or whoever I could get.”

    George – We saw this as sophisticated foreign cooking! Was the dessert Baked Alaska or cheese cake?

    George – The other one in my folder from those days is Beef Stroganoff! Maybe I will post that next week.
