Many thanks to everyone who voted or left comments on my Dring out onions yesterday, and particularly to Pauline [polly470] for her User Award - highly valued from a lady who's work I admire very much

This poppy was actually a yellow one growing in the churchyard!!
I've combined it with a picture of the inside of a saucepan in which I had cooked pasta - hence the title!!

Before images also added

Thanks for looking

Helen

I have heard that you can get well cooked with these poppy seeds Helen !!
And I was interested to see the bottom of a saucepan as I have never seen one before.
My wifes cooking is never good enough for me to use all the contents inside the saucepan !!
Clever work again from you.
