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!!!

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 …
