Nigel Slater's spinach and mushroom lasagne, sort of

Yesterday I bought a Le Crueset lasagne dish and today I thought I'd make a lasagne to go in it. It's a lasagne I've made before, Nigel Slater's spinach and mushroom lasagne, which has alwys worked a treat. And as well as making a lasagne in my new lasagne dish, I thought I'd do something I've never done before - blog as I cook.  So here we go with lots of lovely pictures all adding up to what was truly a lovely lasagne I've just had for tea.  Well, not all of it, you understand, most of it will go in the freezer, but you know what I mean.  If you want the recipe it's here with some pictures of someone else making it too.

Here's my ingredients.  You'll see a red pepper, olive and a bottle of red wine, none of which are on the list in Nigel's book but which I add to my lasagne, and why the devil not?

Here's my pan of spinach. Don't get too excited.

Here's our home grown chillis, another ingredient not on Nigel's list. I'm such a rebel.

Here's the mix just starting to turn into the "lovely goo" that Nigel says it should.


Here's my pan of spinach now it has been cooked.  I love the way spinach disappears.

And here's the red wine going into the mix.
Here's the parmesan being grated to scatter on the top.

Here's the lasgne ready for the oven.


And here it is in all its glory, all done and dusted. It was fantastic.  It'll be even better next time I eat it. I'll leave it to cool, leave it overnight for the flavours, as Nigel would say, to get to know each other, and then I'll cut it up and freeze it.

Eyes down

Every time I take off my reading glasses and I put them back into their glasses case, snapping it shut, it's like a little coffin for my dead eyes.

Coronation Street Weekly Update, January 7 2013

I've been writing Coronation Street weekly updates since 1995 and this week's Coronation Street update has just gone live here

This week in Corrie, Gail fell hook line and sinker for Lewis' hook, lie and stinker.

My Coronation Street TV credit

Chuffed to bits that the Lass o'Gowrie pub in Manchester gave me a credit of thanks for my support with their Coronation Street Live! events this year.

Elephant in a dress

At the weekend I was talking to a friend who also blogs and writes.  We were saying that since we'd linked our blogs up to auto-post to facebook, we've become inhibited about the sort of things we blog about because of the wider and in my case, much more personal audience we reach.

I know, it might sound daft to you, but it made complete sense to me and to the friend I was speaking to.

When chatting about it I said, "You know, sometimes all I want to do on Flaming Nora is post a picture, say of..." and I racked my little brain to think of the most ridiculous thing I could think of blogging "...an elephant in a dress." 

I know, it was the best I could come up with at the time.

Today I've unlinked Flaming Nora from facebook so I'm free to post as much silliness as I want to, as much daftness as I can, as many elephants in dresses as I wish for, and I won't any longer have to worry about what my facebook friends will say. They know I'm here if they want to hunt me out.
