Grub Up

We shared lunch with Rose & Asa today.
 The food was actually better than it looks in the photos, but we forgot to get one of it served up on the plate...

Cottage pie made with yesterday's leftovers, plus some miso & parsley added to the mash.

Roast squash & garlic, mashed together with a little oat milk, black pepper, lemon juice & a liberal sprinkle of nutritional yeast. 
We cut the squash in half & removed the seeds, placed it face down on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. The bulb of garlic, sprinkled with smoked paprika & wrapped in foil was added to the tray too. We cooked them in the oven on a medium heat for 45 minutes, then scooped out the squash from the skin into a bowl & added the puréed garlic (just squeeze from the cloves like a paste). We then mashed with the above ingredients & put it in the oven for 15 minutes... Which would have browned the dish - if the oven had still been on!!! 
Never mind, it was still good!

Steamed veg - there is also kale, courgettes & carrots underneath the cabbage!

We finished with Cardamom & Lime Polenta Cake which we'll share the recipe for tomorrow...

A lovely time & Bebe was on top form yet again - entertaining us all with her songs & silly stories...

See you tomorrow!

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 …
