We have leftover grilled ribeye and cukes in sour cream sauce, so that.
I feel you were cut off mid-flow here DL?

Also, regarding "cukes" (cucumbers I assume). Are they usually de-seeded on your side of the pond? I never de-seed mine - there doesn't seem to be any need. But I am wondering if we have different varieties of cucumber? I saw a US show not so long ago where they referred to "English cucumbers".

Chicken breasts wrapped in smoked bacon, then cooked in the crock-pot with roasted garlic cream of mushroom soup and sour cream. Will serve it with rice and sauteed yellow squash (from our container garden), iced tea and butterscotch pudding with Heath bits sprinkled over.

I grow my own, "Straight 8", in my little raised bed garden patch. I don't take out the seeds. These were the first I got so far this year! I made Grandma's recipe (sorta) of thinly mandolin sliced cukes (sprinkle with salt and leave in a baggie, rinse the heck out of them in a few hours) with a dressing of sour cream, vinegar, salt, pepper, and a bit of sugar.

English cukes are virtually seedless, I don't grow those, but they're available year-round here, usually wrapped in cellophane.

What types of pasta do you have to hand?
Quite a few boxed varieties, but I'm leaning towards the "fresh" gnocchi... or the spaghetti... or maybe the rigatoni or...
Lots of time to decide, Katy.

You are lucky! I simply cannot grow anything at all. Today I gave up on my latest attempt to grow Basil. Two plants got to about 10cm, another three never got past 1cm! They all died. (I swear I only have to look at any plant and it gives up the will to live!)
