  5. 1987, aged 17 with my first car, bought from my uncle, loved this car until the floor fell out shortly afterwards upgraded to an Alfasud that I enjoyed for a couple of years before rolling it
  6. Me and Mrs ACE have been busy in the kitchen too! She made some awesome Easter cupcakes I've been busy baking too, bread and croissants being the main achievements: Recipe is from Paul Hollywood's "Bake" book, link here Paul Hollywood's Croissants This one is adapted from this recipe I used 50% wholemeal bread flour / 50% white bread flour and added some pumkin / sunflower and sesame seeds Chilli is always a good recipe to have in your repertoire, this one is my own, I make my own chilli powder from 2 dried ancho chillies and 4 dried red chillies, just whizzed up in a spice grinder. Fry off a couple of chopped onions with 500g of good quality minced beef, when brown add a 3 good sized cloves of garlic (crushed), cook for a minute or 2, then add the chilli powder, 2 teaspoons each of cumin and coriander powder, a tablespoon of dried oregano, a 4 squares of good quality dark chocolate, a couple of rich beef stock pots (I use knorr), cook for a few more mins, add 2 tins of chopped tomatoes, a tin of kidney beans, 200g of chopped mushrooms, simmer for half an hour or so, the add 3 chopped peppers and simmer for another half hour, might need a splash of water if it gets too think. Season to taste, maybe add a little brown sugar if the tomatoes are a but sour. Made this deep pan pizza based on this recipe added our own toppings, including some sausage meat balls made using our home made sausage meat Looks like everyone is eating well at the moment, keep up the good work!!

  10. @johndglynn That was such a good trip, you'll be pleased to hear that I have a more refined pallet these days (although still enjoy a good steak!). Remember when you fell over that "invisible" wall when we were walking back from the Bastille day celebrations in the little town we stayed in, don't think I've ever laughed so much Also remember that bloody "veggie" bus that we ate in when nothing else was open! Good times for sure mate 👍
