Pease Pudding Hot...

Pease pudding cold,
Pease pudding in the pot... Nine days old.
Only kidding, they wouldn't last that long here!

Tonight's dinner was a strange concoction...

Bean burger, sweet potato wedges & mushy peas.

Sime had mustard & houmous on his too!

We absolutely adore mushy peas... & they are so easy to make...
For 3 of us, we use 300g split green peas.
Put into a large bowl with a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda & cover with at least a litre of boiling water.
Leave for 2 or more hours to soak.
Rinse the peas thoroughly & place in a large pan, cover with cold water & bring to the boil.
Simmer for 30 - 40 minutes, stirring frequently.
You can add any herbs & spices, but tonight - we kept them simple & added a dollop of miso, a pinch of herbamare & some black pepper.

The sweet potatoes were just dry baked in the oven for 45 minutes, shaking the pan every 15 minutes, so they didn't stick. The burgers were based on our previous recipe & the bread rolls, Kay made this afternoon. 


We've had 2 wonderful days off & are back to work tomorrow!

That's my kind of dinner (minus the mustard!). I absolutely love sweet potato. I must try making bean burgers too instead of buying them.

I'm not a fan of mushy peas, but the burgers look very yummy x

Hi Teresa - burgers are always great for using up leftover veg & grains.

Becky - We often crave peas or lentils & are just happy to eat a bowl of them, especially with miso, any time of day!

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 …
