Something for the Weekend wall of fame
The viewers' pictures section in BBC Two’s Something for the Weekend has long been one of our favourite bits of the show. We love checking out the successes and failures that you’ve have had from recipes on the site and hearing Simon’s comments on the pictures. Here's a tasty selection of pictures that you’ve sent in from recent weeks:
Top left: Maia Morris from St Albans, Herts made the raspberry freezer cake for dinner with friends. She is pictured here with husband Jamie and says “it was really tasty!”
Top right: Alex Payne, pictured here with his girlfriend of six years Jenni Archer, made Simon’s chicken and apricot tagine. They are from Fallowfield, Manchester.
Second left: Pictured here is Hayley Prescott. Her sister Kelsey baked the blueberry coffee crumble cake. They both live in Onchan, Isle of Man.
Second right: Sharon from Saltash in Cornwall made Simon’s sweet and sour chicken cups for her boyfriend Alan. She says, “it was a great dish that went down really well!”
Third left: Here are Al, Jen, Beth, Phil and Katy (from left to right) from Stockport. They made the baked paella salad.
Third right: Stephanie (on the left) and Ailsa from London made the chocolate berry swirl cake. Ailsa made it for Stephanie before she left to move to Australia. They both say that the show has helped them learn to cook.
Bottom left: James and Joyce Campbell also made the baked paella salad. They are from Edinburgh. Joyce (a radiographer) is a great cook but since James recently retired from the NHS (as an orthopedic consultant) Joyce makes him do some of the cooking.
Bottom right: Rachael Port from Southampton (pictured here with her cat Satch) made the cherry chocolate pavlova.
What do you think? Could some of these home cooks give Simon a run for his money? Do send us your pictures to feature on the show in future.
