    I love making sourdough but it does take a while, and I let my culture die over winter, so need to start from scratch. I like soda bread for a quick loaf without yeast. I just add lemon juice to milk as a substitute for buttermilk.

    This easy cheesy lentil bake is one of my favourite "storecupboard and fridge bottom" recipes. It's a moveable feast in that you can use whatever veggie bits you have that need using up. I skip the cashews because OH is allergic, and the mushrooms because I don't like them, and add other things like courgettes, peppers, broccoli, chopped leftover ham if you don't need it to be vegetarian, cooked/tinned butter beans or similar, etc..

    Does anyone have suggestions for how to use up excess lettuce? We’re having all the salad we can manage and I’ve already made a big batch of lettuce & mint soup.

    Any other options? I got carried away and planted 30 red lettuce and 20 little gem. Drowning in lettuce leaves.

    Now this is thread that I can relate to!!  @Womble54 for the first post - relish.   I will definitely try this!!  Lettuces (when they are bolting)  can be gently fried in olive oil or butter.  Little onion.  Little dried pepper (flakes).  s&p.  Bon appetit.  i have loads - mother-in-law calabraise (Italy) They make sumptious dishes from nothing!  We may need them this winter.
    A good hoeing is worth two waterings.
