Hippy Slop

We've been making hippy slop ever since we became veggie, back in 1988!

It took a few times to learn how to cook lentils, but since then - we probably eat them more than anything else...

If asked, both of us would say - lentils are our favourite food!
They are warming, comforting & just delicious...

Not only that, but they are nutritious too...

Lentils not only lower cholesterol, they can also prevent blood sugar levels from rising rapidly after eating.
Lentils contain B vitamins, important minerals, fibre & protein.

We cook them gently with onions & garlic, herbs & spices.
And just adore them!

We're going to Hugo's home education group for a day long Halloween party...

Hope you all get plenty of treats!

"hippy slop"

LOL sounds like the sort of thing my Husband would say until he moved here and realised it is the staple food of 80% of the town :-)

Samhain blessings, enjoy it all!

Yum Yum, they are great in soup too x
To listen to my daughter, you would think all we ever ate we're lentils! I don't think that's true, but I do enjoy them.

Kath - We've used the name hippy slop for years, but I'm sure there's a story behind it & no doubt Sime will remember where it comes from... If I get to the bottom of it, I'll let you know!

Jane - we have them at least twice a week, usually more...

Sft - lentils are just so easy to cook & usually cheap too!

Becky - lentil soup is a favourite, especially with butternut squash & creamed coconut...

Andrea - hello, that's great!

It's my lovely wife's 45th birthday today and it's great to see her having such a nice time.  We had a bit of a lie-in, then Kay said that she'd like to go to the new Eden Project Cafe in St. Austell for breakfast.  
Having dined there recently, we were aware of their "Book Swap" area.  Choose a book from home you wish to donate, write a brief piece in the inside cover and put it in the Swap Section. Then, if there's a book you fancy, take it home. Kay donated her favourite book "The Complete SAS Guide to Interrogation Techniques". I made that up. She actually donated the wonderful book "The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, only because the last page is missing. Just joking. It was in pristine condition . I suggested selling it at a car boot sale instead but  then she gave me one of her famous looks and I shut up. Kay wrote in the cover about how good the book is and how she hoped that whomever took it would find …

Lights Out!

Lamledra

The sun was shining yesterday again, so after a fairly busy week - we decided to get out for a long walk. We walked into Gorran Haven & took the coastal path back home...
Gorran Haven Harbour. This part of the coastal path takes you around the Lamledra pennisula, which heads towards Vault beach...
Gorran Haven.
It was chilly, but warm in the sun...
Black clouds started coming over & we thought it was going to rain, but it stayed dry!
First sign of Spring...
Dodman Point ahead & the blue skies were back...
We made the most of the sunshine & stopped to eat...
With a lovely view of the beach...
Lamledra House. We used to clean it, but quit after a year - because we only had 3 hours & felt we just couldn't get everything done - it sleeps 20! The owners are lovely though, but their budget is tight with constant maintenance.  They do have some interesting guests there...
It got to 5pm & we still had a long way to go, so we left the path & took the road...
