Hello everyone,

Some strange threads have popped up in the members only boards 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s it was very interesting seeing the replies from our members. Why am I telling you here ? I don't know as you will have to log-in to read them and I need to post something to kick things off.

Not much going on last month in the psoriasis news. I'm thinking the covid year has caught up and there are not so many surveys, trials or new treatments taking place or being released. But you can rest assured that if anything does happen I will know about it and publish it on the forum.

The members only boards are still very busy as usual so do pop in and have a look around. We have something to keep you all entertained, but if it's not there our members are welcome to start new threads ............................... Who knows you may find someone with the same interests or you may find out something you never knew before.

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

One Pot Winter Warmer

Well its still cold and miserable. When I made this there was an unusual 50mm of snow on the floor. It has been over 10 years since I last saw snow like this here. Apparently this recipe has its roots in the industrial Midlands area of England and is an ideal winter warmer. Its what we call a rib sticker around these parts.

So for this you are going to need the following;
Around 500g of Braising Steak. Chuck, Skirt, Flank or Shin it doesn't matter it all cooks up the same in this.
A couple of large Onions roughly chopped,
3 decent sized Leeks halved lengthways, washed and sliced (about 6mm or so)
3 or 4 carrots diced (about 10mm cubed)
½ a Swede peeled and diced (about 10mm cubed)
A couple of sticks of chopped celery
250g Pearl Barley
A couple of sprigs of Thyme
1 litre of beef stock
a fat teaspoon of Marmite

Its this easy:
Chuck it all in a large lidded casserole dish, just be careful it does expand – a lot.
Give it a good stir, stick in the Marmite and stir in the stock. I know some people don’t like Marmite but believe me you wont be able to detect it once cooked so please stick it in.

It now needs to go in a low oven for around 6 to 8 hours or longer. According to the recipe I found it should be around 160ºC / 350º / Gas 4, but I reckon this is a touch too high as it dries out far too fast. I lowered mine down to 140ºC after the first hour and it could easily have started at this. Again the recipe tells you to keep checking the fluid level as it can dry out – no kidding Sherlock. The official line is it only needs 600ml of stock. This is no way near enough. I ended up putting nearly 2 litres before the cooking finished. You can use water to top up it needs to be kept reasonably wet.

What you are after is a nice thick stodgy stew.

To Serve
A ruddy big steaming bowl full and a shovel to feed the waiting orifice. Although it is stodgy it really benefits from a good heavily buttered artisan crusty bread.

And to accompany
It just has to be a lightly chilled Newcastle Brown Ale. I don't think much else will do unless its a big Steaming Mug of Tea.

Where are they now ?

mickyfinn007: Is one of those members that come and go, he followed us over from the old forum though I seem to remember he had a different username then. Micky always made a point of saying hello to our new members and would always dive in and offer support if needed, however he would often just disappear and not be seen for a few months before coming back.

He enjoyed jetting off for his annual holiday and well deserved too, he was always busy looking after his family and his work by nature didn't give him a lot to laugh about. I got on very well with Micky as did a lot of our members and he was always good for a bit of banter, but at the same time always willing to listen and help out if he could.

Not sure what he is doing now and I always hope he will come back again one day and give us an update. I'm guessing things aren't too good for him at the moment with the way of the world, so I will wish him all the best in this post and say "Take care Micky you're a goodun"

Micky's last visit was 22-05-2018 and members can see his profile Here
