Beautifully put! Sorry you are celiac, I sympathise as i also have a bowel disease.
Yes he has come a long way from ICU
I do hate when other people use my tools, including my cleaning lady. I bite my tongue, except for when she put tea-tree oil into the water well of my floor steam cleaner.
I did show her how to use the machine, for the first three times she came, and i showed her that the tea-tree oil goes on the cleaning pad not the machine, one must never put anything into the machine it will break. She told me that was what she had been doing everytime she used it. Sigh. I may well be up for a new floor steamer, and this one is only new. Alan refuses to through out the dead ones, and they are lined up in a steam mop cemetery in my laundry downstairs.
Finger crossed this one is not added to it anytime soon. We have to buy a new gas water heater.
I cook my corned beef in the slow cooker. I add a dessertspoonful of either golden syrup, or molasses. Handful of cloves, A dollop of vinegar no more than an 8th of a cup for me, handful of mustard. Fill crock pt with water to cover the meat, just. Turn on to auto, and leave it for 8 hours, longer if I have put the meat in frozen.
Melt a dessertspoonful of butter in a saucepan (I use unsalted)
Add a tablespoon of flour (I use GF Flour)
Add a teaspoonful of mustard.
Mix well, and allow to cook for about one minute
Add a cup or more if you need the of the liquid from the corned beef. Blend well. Cook stirring, until the sauce boils and thickens.
Lovely painting Bill.
I had better go and make some phone calls.
