February 2021

Hello everyone,

Thank you to those that took part in the newsletter survey, I have started a thread about the results Here

One thing I did learn was that most of the newsletter subscribers have not logged-in for over 12 months, so from this month I will be removing any member with no log-in for 1 year from the newsletter group. My thinking is that they obviously don't read the newsletter or use the forum and they could be marking the newsletter email as spam which gives us a bad name. *Anyone removed from the newsletter group will still be able to subscribe again if they wish.

New Column: I was going through the member list the other day and started to wonder what happened to some of our early members, so I have started a new column "Where are they now" which you can find on the left hand side. Depending on your feedback I may look at running it each month, so let me know what you think.

Don't forget our members are welcome to give feedback (good or bad) about the newsletter Here

Ok let's get on with the show.

Johnb's Recipe Spot

Sausage and Leek One Pot

Well as I write this it is a cold, wet, grey and miserable day. So what better than to match the weathers mood? Now I have to admit when Mrs John served this up I had to put my very best poker face on. I think its best described as insipid looking. But this is most definitely one of those ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’. It is actually one of those very very tasty filling winter warmer comfort dishes.

So start off by finely slicing around 500g of leeks and a large onion. Also peel and dice into 10 – 15mm cubes a couple of large white potatoes (Maris Piper?).

Hunt down a half dozen meaty sausages. You need something with a bit of flavour. We used a Lincolnshire style sausage. Oooo just had a thought you could steal some of Fred's home made bangers! Fry them off in a frying pan until they are just cooked through with a bit of colour to them (‘cause this is literally the only colour contrast this dish has). You might need a bit of oil if they aren’t that fatty a sausage. Remove the sausage once done and place to one side.

Lower the heat under the frying pan and fry the leeks and onions in the sausage fat left in the pan for around 5 minutes. Season with a good pinch of sea salt.
Wind the heat up and throw in 100ml of white wine to get all the tasty goodness off the bottom of the pan. Lower the heat once de-glazed adding 100ml of chicken stock and cover your pan.
After about 5 minutes add the cubed spuds and the sausage that you have just sliced to around 6mm thick. Cover again and simmer for 15 minutes or so. It might need a touch more stock as the dish cooks – don’t let it dry out – but it doesn’t want to be sopping wet either.

Just before serving stir in 100g of cream cheese and give it a really good grind of black pepper. You could if you wished, grate a bit of Gruyère over the dish for that bit extra.

So to serve A hearty dollop on a plate, what more can I say? Yep. I know. Grey. Just give it a chance!

To Accompany Well after much deliberation I think this just cries out for a touch of 70’s renaissance. Go for a nicely chilled Liebfraumilch. I know this stuff is well out of fashion and has a bad rep, but I think it will work nicely with this.

Where are they now ?

Lostintranslation: Joined Psoriasis Club when it first started in 2010, she was a big help at the start and she was my first moderator. Not only was she a moderator she was also very good at pointing out my spelling mistakes, and she would always make a point of answering new members introductions.

Lost (as we called her) did join us here when I moved to our own hosting, but this time she no longer wanted to be a moderator. As we all know things in our lives can change and she did contact me to say she was leaving Psoriasis Club, she last logged-in 10-11-2011.

I don't know where you are now Lost and I doubt you will ever see this message, but I do hope life is treating you well and don't forget your account is still open and you will be made very welcome if you did come back.

*Our members can see Lost's profile Here


Suggestion box:

Someone has removed the Psoriasis Club suggestion box and left a note. The note reads "You need to secure the suggestion box" as much as some may find this funny, we are no longer able to read your suggestions so in future you will have to phone us.

Burst water pipe:

You may have noticed that we had a burst water pipe in the Psoriasis Club car park recently, I can confirm that this has now been fixed. There was a high pressure leak near the bicycle shed, If you are missing a bicycle you will see it stuck up the tree nearby.

Mystery tour:

Departs Sunday at 08:00 from the Psoriasis Club car park. We will stop for lunch at ****** **** before going on to ************* **** where we will be given a guided tour. You will be able to buy branded souvenirs and we expect to get back around 17:00.

See you all next month

Turnedlight's poetry corner

Winters garden

So quiet the gardens
Of winter
So hushed and
All subdued
So dark in the gloom
Of the afternoon
So bowed
So cowed the mood

So still the gardens
In winter
So ghostly the
World asleep
So damp are the leaves
Of the sodden trees
So cold
So cold, they weep

So hopeful the gardens
Of winter
So longed for the
Spring to come
So welcome the sight
Of the delicate light
So wished
So missed the sun
