Marmite Potatoes

My friend sent me this recipe...
I've smelled Marmite SEVERAL times in an attempt to MAKE myself WANT to taste it.
It's probably not gonna happen anytime soon
I haven't had potatoes in a long time....
Marmite and potatoes..I guess I cant knock it till I have tried it.
I don't have a picture....

Here is his recipe...
5 potatoes
2 large onions
fresh rosemary
vegetable stock

Couldn't be simpler. Preheat the oven to 400F/200C. Put the kettle on.

Slice the taters into rounds, thin, but not too thin, say 4mm = 1/6 inch.

Slice the onions into rounds (across the grain, so you get rings), thin, say 1-2mm = 1/16 inch (basically as thin as you can easily get whole rounds).

Kettle has boiled, so mix up about 3 cups (a pint or so) of water with a vegetable stock cube (or teaspoon or two of stock granules) and a heaped teaspoon of marmite.

Put one layer of potato slices over the bottom of an ovenproof dish (say 8" across, 3" deep). Keep them as close together as possible, minimizing gaps.

Follow with a layer of onion slices.

Sprinkle the onion with some fresh rosemary spines (at least 12-15).

Repeat the three layers, ending with potato.

Pour over the stock. The idea is to just barely reach the level of the top potatoes.

Put it in the oven.

Wait 1 hour.
Serve with fork & spoon & dijon mustard.

sweetest drink

Passion juice filled with passion they said and INSISTED
SO they let us taste it...The taste was a whole cup
It was full of passion alright

I mean if passion was sugar!

It tasted great but wow, you shook every time you tasted it!
I loved it actually because we laughed every time we sipped it....
But I won't have it again for a long time!

Everything was so cute at this party.
The people were so sweet and friendly, and I had a nice time
There was this



This kinda concerned me

Just a little too pink
It concerned my friend too...
It was really 'juicy' when it was bit into

The Hamburger/cheeseburger cake was a great idea...

I was so tired and drained that day. I was really glad of the no stress, happy go lucky company :)

I think my friend enjoyed her sushi

I barely ate any of this..even though it looked really good.

This was very very delicious.
Each sauce had a completely different flavor.
It was heavenly.

My favorite part, which I couldn't wait for was the mango pudding

This had the consistency of near melted ice-cream so I don't think 'pudding' is the correct word.
Bits of Banana were floating in it
The feeling when you ate it was akin to being enveloped in soft musk (the perfume).

Sometimes you can mess it up when you are nervous :)
