Oh yes Toad in the Hole is lovely. I do Delia Smiths recipe with a delicious onion gravy. Stick to your ribs stuff.

Had second thoughts on the decorations. No flags. Nay nay and thrice nay.

Would use flags for a party theme or a barbecue.

For a meal though, we need decorum , elegance and finesse. A beautifully laid table, I would either go for crisp white linen or perhaps a damask table cloth with napkins (in proper napkin rings mind). Best china, best wine glasses and polished cutlery. Or, for a pretty old fashioned "vintage" look, florals as in a Cath Kidson style, sort of 50's retro. Very popular now.

Happy Cooking !

Tut tut GQ...................It's still early so I'll let you off

I only remember so many because I crave most of them Still, I've got around to being able to create most of them after sourcing all the ingredients here.
