Lush certainly we collecting plastic bottle tops a little while ago.

I've had a bit of a rebellion over the last couple of days and whilst tidying up have to admit sweeping bottle tops, milk bottle foils and various other things into the bin. I just haven't the energy to sort them all out and wash them.

i'll get over it and normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.

Our local hspice collects them, so maybe yours do too.

Gail - it's been ages!!

We take ours to Lush, but we don't have a branch very near, we leave it for when we go to Worcester or Cheltenham which means we have a good six months' worth. The Lush employees are trained to be bright and cheerful, so they always sound enthusiastic when I unload my bagful of tops, but it's far too much for the little cardboard container they provide in the shop so I'm not sure if I'm being a nuisance!

It's nearly six months since Christmas and I still have the left over turkey I froze about 3 days after Christmas. (Was supposed to be sooner, but I was ill for 2 days!)

So I think it is time to cook it up into a tasty dish but feel that all my standbys are going to be greeted unenthusiastically. I usually serve it in a white sauce or curry it at Christmas.

does anyone have any suggestions for appetiosing meals.

Last year I ended up binning the frozen remains in December. I don't want to do that this year.

I've put a recipe for a casserole in the recipe section.
If I freeze roast meat I often cook it by thawing (in the fridge), then putting in gravy and cooking in the oven for half an hour or longer on gas mark 4 (180C)

I'm sure no-one would be bored with the reappearance of the turkey - with the current cold weather, it's quite cheering to have a hot traditional meal.
(Mr D and I once went to visit a relative who prepared a beautiful meal from Elizabeth David's 'Summer Cooking', which was all cold. It started with frozen soup - which would have been fine on a hot day, but it was the kind of weather we're having now, and was a bit miserable to tell the truth!!
