      In memory of Linda, here is a recipe of her, I have found on the net:

      Best vegetable quiche adapted from Linda?s Kitchen by Linda McCartney

      Serves 6

      625g small courgettes (I used round courgettes de Nice), sliced thinly

      50g margarine

      2 large cloves garlic, sliced finely

      3 free-range eggs

      200g queso mantecoso or to taste *

      2 tsp garam masala or to taste (optional)

      200ml single cream (I used milk instead)

      sea salt

      Sauté the courgettes in the margarine or butter until soft and turning golden brown. Remove from the heat and add the garlic and optional garam masala (I omitted it).

      Beat the eggs with the milk and season with a little salt and pepper if you wish.

      Arrange the courgettes at the bottom of the pan and sprinkle the cheese on top. Carefully pour the egg and milk mixture over the top.

      Bake at 220°C for 30 minutes.

      Queso mantecoso is a very creamy cheese from Argentina. To my knowledge, it doesn?t exist anywhere else. The closest I?ve come was to use some Brie though it?s not exactly the same. If anybody knows another cheese that resembles it, please let me know!!!!!!

        i was thinking about this this morn

        wow,its already been 10 years?

        RIP linda

            I will always remembers Linda as this wonderful, caring, and heart warming woman who touched the lives of many especially Paul. She left this world much too soon and I?ll always miss her. I can hardly believe it?s been 10 years already. It?s amazing how time flies. I was too young to remember Linda or her death at the time (I was only 7, and morning the death of my Mom 2 weeks prior) but as I grew I began to learn and discover what a remarkable person she really was. She was Paul?s rock and I know Paul deep down still misses the woman he called his 'girlfriend? Her spirit lives on in many and in her family. May she R.I.P.

              Linda was a beautiful, kind, loving, supportive woman, wife, mother and friend. The world was lucky to have felt her influence. May we all continue to learn from the example she set.

              Positive thoughts and wishes to the McCartney family on this day.

                Heaven On A Sunday

                Peaceful, like heaven on a Sunday

                Wishful, not thinking what to do

                We've been calling it love
                But it's a dream were going through

                And if I only had one love

                Yours would be the one I'd choose
                If I only had one love

                Yours would be the one I'd choose

                Restful, like Devon on a Monday

                Cooling my fingers in the bay

                We've been learning a song

                But it's a long and lonely blues

                If I only had one love

                Yours would be the one I'd choose
                If I only had one love

                Yours would be the one I'd choose
                If I only had one love

                Yours would be the one I'd choose

                It?s Peaceful, like heaven on a Sunday
                Wishful, not thinking what to do

                We've been calling it love

                But it's a dream were going through

                And if I only had one love

                Yours would be the one I'd choose

                If I only had one love

                Yours would be the one I'd choose

                If I only had one love

                Yours would be the one I'd choose

                If I only had one love

                Yours would be the one I'd choose
                If I only had one love
                You'd be the one I'd choose
                If I only had one love

                Yours would be the one I'd choose
                If I only had one love

                You'd be the one I'd choose

                If I only had one love

                  I can't believe it's been 10 years. I remember where i was when I found out she died, I was so shocked and sad.
                  Linda, is a huge inspiration to me and I wish I could've met her.
                  Rest in Peace Linda, I miss you.
                  My prayers and thoughts are with Paul and his family on this sad day.

                    I Was Sad When I Heard Linda Died!

                      Personally, I find it difficult to believe that it has been ten years that we - and, obviously, Paul and their family - have been without Linda. It seems a lot more recent than that and yet the dates don't lie.

                      The upcoming photographic exhibition in London is a very appropriate way to remember Linda's art and creativity, but there aren't many days that go by during which I don't hear Linda's vocals on one of Paul's tracks and I was reminded (by listening to Bill do a satirical version of Dear Boy on Strawberry Fields Radio) just how difficult some of those vocals were. Although perhaps not the most gifted or natural musician in the world, she was able to make valuable contributions to Paul's music and it has to be said that, without Linda's vocals, Paul's music for almost three decades would have sounded quite different - certainly the feel of it.

                      The one piece of music I know that Linda is solely responsible for is the bridge in Live And Let Die, the reggae-ish "What does it matter to ya?" bit. It's cool knowing that Linda wrote that bit, because it really helps make the song the classic that it is. Although I'm not exactly in love with Cook Of The House, it has a great deal of charm and, indeed, the Linda McCartney album Wide Prairie is surprisingly good. I listened to it today as a tribute to Linda.

                      Another huge part of Linda's influence on the world was her love of animals and commitment to vegetarianism. With her name and recipies, she helped launch a range of vegetarian ready meals and foods which, even today, still bears her name and led to many competitors springing up. I seem to remember someone interviewing her and asking if she was concerned about competitors and she replied something to the effect that she was just happy that there was more vegetarian food on the market. That was what mattered to her, not the profits, although I'm sure the McCartneys didn't exactly want to make a loss.

                      Watching her in interviews alongside Paul - they just made such a great team. Linda would field questions on behalf of Paul and deal with them with warmth and wit. They were obviously very compatible and, although they both had their baggage, they soon became the very model of a loving, caring, devoted couple and I certainly remember, when I was growing up, hoping that I had that kind of thing with someone when I was older. I'm sure, like any married couple, they had their rough times, but they were strong and their love was both inspiring and genuine. I think the past ten years without her has proved - if the fact needed proof, that is - just how good Linda was for Paul.

                      Anyway, those are my personal thoughts about Linda. I admired her greatly, loved - and aspired to - the kind of relationship and family life she and Paul enjoyed and miss her because of the kind person she was, the art that she produced and because my heart hurts for Paul that he lost somebody so very close to him, so very irreplaceable. Miss you, Linda.

                        That was, and this is, a very sad day indeed....( )

                                    I love Linda. I never knew her until last year, when I discovered Paul McCartney & Wings (I'm a new addict!), but she seemed like a great person. It's sad to learn that she passed away when I was only four.

                                    Well, she will live on in all of our hearts; she was truly an angel (may she rest in peace with Karen Carpenter). To quote Linda... "Keep smiling, we love you."

                                      i can´t believer that 10 years are gone.

                                      still remember that april morning 1998 when i herad the sad news.

                                      she was a warm and friendly person.

                                      i never met her personally but i saw her on some concerts here in germany and she always smiled.

                                      she will always in our hearts....

                                      thank you linda.....maybe you have met my little brother on the other side...
