Following an accident at home last week, I have just had a replacement hip fitted.
So sorry I wasn't able to join in with cooking Zambian Baked Sea Bream this Friday just gone. I'm impressed with all the pictures that have been sent in, very well done everyone.
I'm looking forward to having a go myself, once I get out of hospital and get fit enough.

@Ju Lian get yourself a bar stool in the kitchen so you can cook without standing all the time. You could also get a few bottles or cans in too 🍺🍺

So good to read you are getting back to recovery after the op. Rest and make sure you recover properly. Looking forward to have you cooking again soon!

I agree with you on the pricing. I did a costing on the meal I did tonight, which fed 4 adults with some leftovers . For the same price I paid for 1 meal last night, fed 4 adults tonight. It makes sense to spend more time in the kitchen, not necessarily bare foot and pregnant, but cooking with the group.

Sorry to her that you are injured and I pray for a speedy and complete recovery.

@Mark Choice Thank you for your good wishes Mark. I have a number of Indian curries I've cooked myself in the freezer which will come in handy. I also love Thai food which my wife cooks everyday so there will always be something delicious to eat. I've nothing against getting takeaway food and there's an excellent one nearby but that could get rather pricey. The main thing is that I want to get back to the group cooking as soon as I'm able.

I pray for a speedy recovery and for you to be back in the kitchen with us soon! At least you can order in your favourite curry from your local Indian restaurant.

@Gordon Moore Thank you Gordon. I can't wait to get cooking again so having to take at least 3 months off work, that will definitely be part of my recovery programme.

@Ju Lian 🤔 that must mean I'm relatively young too 😁.
Best not mention the fit part 😳

@Debbie Gorman Thank you Debbie, I'm sure I'll be ok. The doctors already said I could be discharged yesterday but physio won't allow me to go until they've got everything ready for me - bed and seating heights etc. Also, at 61, I'm relatively young and fit so I should recover well.

So sorry to hear that you are in hospital. Hope that you have a good physio plan in place it is crucial for recovery. A few of my friends have slipped and fallen and ended up with hip replacements . One was drunk as a skunk and slipped on one of those slipways that boats use to access the sea and fell in !! He was so drunk he didnt realise what he had done until the next morning🤪
