Vegan Winter Comfort Food

Foodie photies!
Mostly taken at Meadowcroft, hence the rubbish light...

Our usual small portions - hahaha!
That brown thing is a stuffed mushroom with tons of veggies.
This stuffing was made with some leftover chickpea houmous, walnuts, a few breadcrumbs, chopped onions & garlic. Then we have dry roasted spuds, swede & potato mash, roasted butternut squash, beetroot & parsnip, steamed carrots, cauli & cabbage. This was then swamped in Sime's lentil & miso gravy!

The leftover steamed veg then got added to butternut squash, mushroom, butter bean & pea spaghetti - which were cooked with onions, garlic & liquid aminos.

Red lentil, walnut and brown rice bake with onions, garlic, mushrooms, courgettes and breadcrumbs.

Home made pizza topped with hummus, potato, sweetcorn, mushroom, tomato, courgette and fresh parsley.

More pizza... Home made polenta base, topped with passata, red onion, potato, sweetcorn, mushroom, courgette, tomato and olives.

Pancakes made with oats, wholewheat flour and buckwheat flour.
We whizz up the ingredients with some maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla extract, a little baking powder, a pinch of salt and a mix of plant milk and water.

Chilli made with tofu, quinoa, black beans, sweetcorn, onions, sliced garlic, fresh chillies, cherry tomatoes and ginger, plus various herbs and spices thrown in for good measure.
Served with baked spuds and topped with stir-fried kale and sunflower seeds.

Did we tell you how much we love food? :-)

This is us trying to be serious...


Doesn't last very long...

Happy Friday!!!

Invisible Man

I love the summer. It's my favourite time of year. This year has been particularly bountiful with regards to long periods of uninterrupted sunshine and I have needed no encouragement whatsoever to step outside and sensibly and gradually expose my body to the rays. Over a period of many weeks I have gradually bronzed in a way that has been beyond my grasp for many years due to the whims and vagaries of the British summer. Finally, after careful immersion I have achieved a level of poise and confidence not unlike say mild smugness. Now don't get me wrong, it is by no means a deep tan, a swarthy layer of earthen masculinity but it is most definitely noticeable to those who may have whispered the words "pasty" or "wan git", It has been not just a surprise but a crushing blow then to discover that my new found glow has not only been completely ignored, but my lovely wife (who too possesses a not unenviable tan herself has been the centre of attention because of …

Preparing For Our Next Adventure

Here are some photos of the barn we are moving into at the weekend.



We will be sharing the main barn with folks on working holidays.


The view from the barn across the land.

The barn is made from straw bales.

The end of the main barn and the smaller attached barn used for holiday lets/retreats.

The outdoor solar shower.
The compost loos.

One end of the main barn with our bedroom on the right.



The other end of the barn -  with kitchen, dining and living space...

And this wonderful large stove which is perfect for us.


We are very excited to be on the moving on to a new adventure and closing the door to the little house by the sea.

A Year Of Wonder

What an incredible year we have had...


We downsized to spend 12 months in a sweet little house with the most stunning views of the sea.

We were treated to an amazing holiday in Canada, thanks to our kind and beautiful friend Richard...




It was fantastic to spend time with Richard and his fabulous family...  We adore them all very much and will always be grateful to him for his incredible generosity!
We had lots of new work opportunities come our way, which have kept us extremely busy and have enabled us to continue living here - The price for a bit of luxury!
We now work in more stunning properties and we also spent the summer season at the youth hostel with a lovely team...



All the kidlets are happy living their alternative lives...  2 of them own a caravan, 2 of them live in that caravan, 2 of them gave up their flat to do a long term house sit and all of them have exciting plans ahead.





We have come to realise that for us, our sea view isn't worth the hard work and what we both …
