Having never cooked for 6 people before (apart from lasagne, but that is easy-ish) and never having cooked certain dishes before, I decided I would need a trial first. Yesterday was the starter's turn. The result did have some faults. So, definitely some more work needed. Or a rethink for that matter!

    Having checked back many posts looking for the menu I was so sure I had read, realised it must not have been here that you told me; anyway, here is the "Scottish" recipe for oxtail soup.

    Alternatively you could do YAM's vege 'MOCKTAIL SOUP'; 500gm babyleaf spinach, one can crushed tomatoes, 1 ltr vege stock, salt and pepper adjustment to taste. Bring all to boil in large pan, simmer for 20 minutes, blitz till no bits. Yummmmm - even my dad and brother loved this one and were surprised when I said it was definitely vege! YAM xx

    1. Mine tastes good, it's just that there was so much fat floating on the top and most of the meat from the oxtail was unusable, since it was just the fatty trimmings! I will try again with less butter and trying to cut the fatty trimmings off beforehand.

  2. It looks good and nutritious too.

  3. Looks like a nice dish for a crowd on a chilly autumn day!

  4. Looks like a tasty dish!
