Hippy Slop

We've been making hippy slop ever since we became veggie, back in 1988!

It took a few times to learn how to cook lentils, but since then - we probably eat them more than anything else...

If asked, both of us would say - lentils are our favourite food!
They are warming, comforting & just delicious...

Not only that, but they are nutritious too...

Lentils not only lower cholesterol, they can also prevent blood sugar levels from rising rapidly after eating.
Lentils contain B vitamins, important minerals, fibre & protein.

We cook them gently with onions & garlic, herbs & spices.
And just adore them!

We're going to Hugo's home education group for a day long Halloween party...

Hope you all get plenty of treats!

"hippy slop"

LOL sounds like the sort of thing my Husband would say until he moved here and realised it is the staple food of 80% of the town :-)

Samhain blessings, enjoy it all!

Yum Yum, they are great in soup too x
To listen to my daughter, you would think all we ever ate we're lentils! I don't think that's true, but I do enjoy them.

Kath - We've used the name hippy slop for years, but I'm sure there's a story behind it & no doubt Sime will remember where it comes from... If I get to the bottom of it, I'll let you know!

Jane - we have them at least twice a week, usually more...

Sft - lentils are just so easy to cook & usually cheap too!

Becky - lentil soup is a favourite, especially with butternut squash & creamed coconut...

Andrea - hello, that's great!

Rural Life

We live in a small hamlet of 14 households - all on one lane, but spread out & mainly detached, apart from the 3 barn conversions across from us. There have been a number of changes in the six years we have lived here, people moving in & out, houses renovated & extended, but for us - the worst thing is that the last few newcomers are city people. They have all spent thousands of pounds modernising their homes & turning them into fortresses. Fences & gates have been erected, security lights & alarms fitted...
I suppose most folks will think that they are being sensible, but it's changing the way our little place looks & feels & to me it seems that these modern extras will invite unwanted attention - it suggests there's something worth taking.What was once a simple, quaint little hamlet is fast becoming yet another exclusive part of rural Cornwall.  Only 3 of the 14 households are Cornish & they are all related, the rest (apart from us) are well …

Just A Quickie

We got back in the early hours of yesterday, worked & we're working again until Wednesday. When we'll have a day off to be volunteers at Hugo's home education group... 
We had a very productive time in Stoke, got lots sorted again around Bebe & had great fun with her during a meal out... We also saw Grandad Gerry & Nana Footstep (Sime's Dad & Step-Mum), which is always lovely!
I had a tooth out - the tooth I had filled a couple of months ago...  Apparently, the filling had been put directly on to the nerve of the tooth, so no wonder I'd been suffering (my jaw has had a dull ache for a while & my tooth was very sensitive to cold drinks & food). The filling hadn't set underneath, so this dentist said he wasn't surprised that I'd had a metallic taste in my mouth. The guy was lovely, he was very patient with my stupid behaviour & Sime was with me throughout holding my trembling hand!
We had a bit of free time too - saw a film & on …
