    My lovely neighbours gave me 3 fabulous looking but large marrows today. They were picked whilst we were talking, so are as fresh as they can be.

    I love fresh marrow, these are the ones that look like a giant courgette but would like some new ideas for SW style ways of cooking it.

    HELP !!!! I cannot stand waste. I will give one to a girl friend but the rest have to be used.

    I made a huge veggie curry for my Service User last week, with Marrow, BNS, Carrot, cauliflower, peppers, Mushrooms. It's all freezable too.

    Thanks ladies.

    I think tonight we will have it with quorn mince, which we both love, with a tomato and basil sauce and topped with cheese, hea and b. So thanks for the idea Emsie.

    Tomorrow we will have it as Shirleens' curry veg but with noodles instead of rice.

    Mmmmmm, it is making me feel hungry.

    The stuffed marrow was so delicious we had it again tonight.

    I fried onions in fry light, added tomatoes when that was cooked added tomato puree, crumbled in an oxo bolognese stock cube.............cut the marrow into enough for the 2 of us, scooped out the seeds stuffed with mix, topped with HEA an HEB of cheese.

    Monday I am going to make roasted veg soup and freeze it to use up some more.

    Thanks for the ideas.
