I’ve set myself a rigorous testing schedule for 2011 and can already see it’s going to be hard to stick to it.  I’m back in the wonderful world of internet dating and it is a right bun fight already!  Paid my subscription on Monday and have been on two assignations this week.

The first guy seemed mortally offended when I said (after two drinks) that I had to get home and make some soup.  He got in a right strop about it.  But last night’s prospect had a much better reaction.  When I said that I was planning a big soup he laughed and said, “What, to see  you through the week?”  Then in a very gentlemanly fashion he said he’d really enjoyed meeting me, would like to see me again and when might I be free?  You can guess which one gets the cigar…

I’ve put together a new list of recipes that need a friendly eye cast over them so it would be great to get some volunteers for these.  Just drop me an email – silverscreensuppers – at – yahoo dot co dot uk (trying to bamboozle the spammers there!)  These are the top candidates:

Constance Bennett’s Spanish Chicken

Claudette Colbert Cake

Dolores del Rio’s Arroz Con Pollo

Gracie Fields Lancashire Hot Pot

Greta Garbo’s Swedish Meat Balls

Groucho Marx Matzo Balls

Humphrey Bogart’s Spanish Cream

Jessie Matthews’ Sunset Salad

John Wayne’s Cheese Casserole

Johnny Weissmuller’s Apricot Meringue Pie

Katharine Hepburn’s Eggplant in Casserole

Lillian Gish’s Lemon Pie

Rita Hayworth’s Angel Food Cake

Ronald Coleman’s English Pot Pie

Shirley Temple’s Chocolate Gravy

Thelma Todd’s Scripture Cake

Veronica Lake’s Spiced Beef With Peas

If you’ve emailed recently offering to test cook please forgive me for not getting back to you.  As soon as my tax return is done I will be on it!
