I don't even know how many people we had for dinner last night; after counting to about 15 I lost the will to live!
So, what's a chap to do. Simple, make a delicious Greek Pastitsio.
Known in our house as Marconi Pie (Macaroni Pie), it's an ideal dish for when a whole hungry Rugby team turns-up.
Depending on what pasta is used, and in what country it's made, Pastitsio is alternatively known as Lasagna, or cannelloni; the basics are pasta, rich beef/tomato sauce, and a cheesy white sauce. The combinations are endless.
One thing I can always guarantee is that there will never be any left over for my breakfast. Yesterday I made two HUGE dishes.... nothing left!
Tonight we eat Roast Turkey; we always have a second Christmas in Feb'.
STORIES NOW SILENCED ..........

The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone (except the obdurate and dictatorial) is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 46 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away; we also have a Border Collie called Billy. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
