For The Love Of Food...And Family!

Food is the focus of all our family get-togethers...

Sime's lentil stew is just wonderful, as is his mash.
He adds leeks or spring onions (fried in just a little soy sauce) to mashed potatoes, as well as chopped mint, black pepper, a blob of mustard & a splash of plant milk.


Bebe doesn't eat much, but has always been happy to eat veggie/vegan dishes with us...




Kay made Chocolate Fudge Cake, using the juice & zest of 2 oranges & some creamed coconut in the icing... 
It had been Ryan's Birthday & as we don't see Sal & Ryan very often now they live in Bristol - we wanted to make a fuss!

We also visited Pizza Express in Truro, who now feature a vegan (if a little spicy) pizza on their menu...


They are always willing to accommodate us & adapt any pizza... This one is their vegan version of Giardiniera... Without the cheese & pesto.


For dessert - raspberry sorbet & coffee!


Tired & hungry after cleaning a couple of houses...



But happy!!!

Happy belated birthday Ryan! waves to Bebe :-)
All that food looks delicious! I always do that to my pizza too, spread it with a massive pile of rocket :-)
I've been having an interesting time recently. My Uncle died last year, I knew he was a vegan, animal rights and anti-vivisection activist, who had appeared on TV, but I only recently learned that he campaigned for a vegan blood donor register.

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 …
