Come back happyman 😁

Well that was the message I received today, and it did make me think that there are some members that genuinely do miss me/posts.

I read almost daily on a couple of other forums and I was very saddened to see that one of the most valuable members on there won't be contributing anymore on there, then when I looked in here I saw our dear loveable Mandy has left us...very very sorry for that.

I remember one of her last posts was of fish and chips, so I thought I'd make some, i had this with mushy peas that i made from dried split peas, seasoned with salt pepper and apple cider vinegar.

The lemon is from my garden..

The Cod was absolutely beautiful. The chips were double fried for that extra crispness.

Yes I am feeling a lot better as a I had my second vaccine yesterday and the beautiful beaches are open again, had a lovely day in the sea this afternoon...😊

πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹So glad you’re back! Of course you were missed! So sweet of you to make your comeback post a tribute to Mandy. Yes, I will miss her, too, but I’m thinking she will be back, too. It’s breakfast time for me right now and if I had your fish and chips, they certainly would be what I would reach for. πŸŒΈπŸ’•

So glad your back Happyman4 and feeling much more comfortable now your double vaccinated. It is such a shame about Mandy, maybe she will come back soon 😊

Thank you Kitten-whiskers, I do feel so much better now I got my second jab..I know I still have to be careful though. Perhaps Mandy will come back when she finally got her new kitchen finished..😊

Thats great Happyman, we do need to be careful with winter but we will get through it.

Yes hopefuly Mandy will come back - she has before πŸ™ƒ

So glad to have you back happyman 😊You have been missed. It'll be nice for me to know I'll wake up to your daily post again. I hope your here to stay now πŸ˜‰The fish and chips look delicious. I made home made chips last weekend and they were really enjoyed by me and my family as well as some samosa's and spring rolls. I am really craving this kind of food lately. Like you I hope we can have Mandy back soon πŸ˜‹

Thank you Zara, I do love Cod and chips, or any fish and chips 😁I've been perfecting my chips method for cooking in leaving the prepared chips in water for a while to wash some of the starch out, then fry them for 5 minutes, leave them to cool down while I fry the fish and then fry them again in very hot crispy on the outside and soft inside...perfect 😊

I did the same and soaked my chips in water for 30 mins. It does help remove some of the starch. I think the potatoes I had were a bit sweet so the chips had a slight sweet taste after frying. My sons were too hungry so I just fried the potatoes fully once. Needed to feed hungry tummies πŸ˜„

The one thing I noticed when I first moved to Thailand 14 years ago was the potatoes were so much sweeter and more tasty they are then the varieties we had in the UK. I still don't know what variety they are, but it's the only one they have, with the exception of the small waxy ones they call soup potatoes. Quite understand you just frying the chips once..I know what am like when my kids say am hungry dad...😁

How did you cook the cod? These veggies would be a nice accompaniment

I use a deep pan for frying, I normally use a tempura flour adding salt and pepper to it for the butter mix..I also add some salt and pepper to the flour that you coat the fish in first before dipping into the butter mixture.

That's a lovely lot of healthy looking veg you have Bluelady-sing, I think I would have eaten them all before I got back to my kitchen 😊

I mentioned in my post that I have now received my second vaccine, like most all of us we try to find out as much as possible on what protection we are actually getting from the vaccine and what we should be doing to keep us as safe as possible so we can fulfill are hope's and dreams.This is one of the many links that I have been reading and its just a reminder that we are not out the woods just yet..

Call me weird that I like to read these articles most every morning 😬

I think its us with health issues that worry more and are more careful and concerned about the virus.

Happyman4 in reply to Zara0123

I just been reading a study from Denmark of people who how asthma and other lung diseases if they contracted covid..couldn't really understand it as it was very long and a bit to advanced for my reading am none the wiser..The only thing I have worked out over the last year or so is that we are more likely to suffer more serious problems if we have health issues..but I think that is generally accepted to be true. So nothing really is going to change my living habits for the foreseeable future πŸ˜πŸ‘

I don't think it's weird @ all. I read everything about it. In fact, I just got my Moderna "booster" shot. I'm glad you came back.,Happyman4. I don't post much but I do read almost every day.Hope this means that you are feeling well.

Happyman4 in reply to Maxy6

Yes thank you Maxy6, I am feeling a lot better. Am very happy that you got your booster vaccine as it will make a big difference in fighting off the virus.

I spoke to the nurse who gave me the second jab, who said it will most likely that I will get the booster in about 6 months time..

Whatever happens I will most definitely be getting it either here in Thailand or somewhere else in the world...πŸ˜πŸ‘

Hiya, I've not been present on the forum recently as I've not been well but so glad to see you are still posting.
