Chorizo and Lentil Stew
This is very nice, I used a little less Chorizo - 225g and next time I am going to add a coule of Red Chilli as I did not find it spicy at all. As others have suggested, adding other bits and bobs such as potato and carrots is a good idea as it is so rich. We ate with buttered granary bread. Thanks for the recipe.

Banana Banana Bread
I am sat eating the bread now. It is absolutely delicious! I used 2 large bananas, just over half a cup of sugar and mashed the bananas up leaving a fair few smallish lumps. I left it in the oven for 50 mins and wrapped it in a teacloth for 1/2 hour to finish cooking itself. I couldn't believe it when I took it from the oven it was so perfect. I left it covered by a large class bowl on a plate overnight and it was eaten this morning for breakfast. It is moist but bread/cake like. The banana taste is prominent but not overpowering and the loaf is sweet enough with the lesser amount of sugar. I recommend you bake on the middle/high shelf of the oven - not too high or low. Give this one a go and you will not be disappointed! - A great recipe.
