Pease Pudding Hot...

Pease pudding cold,
Pease pudding in the pot... Nine days old.
Only kidding, they wouldn't last that long here!

Tonight's dinner was a strange concoction...

Bean burger, sweet potato wedges & mushy peas.

Sime had mustard & houmous on his too!

We absolutely adore mushy peas... & they are so easy to make...
For 3 of us, we use 300g split green peas.
Put into a large bowl with a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda & cover with at least a litre of boiling water.
Leave for 2 or more hours to soak.
Rinse the peas thoroughly & place in a large pan, cover with cold water & bring to the boil.
Simmer for 30 - 40 minutes, stirring frequently.
You can add any herbs & spices, but tonight - we kept them simple & added a dollop of miso, a pinch of herbamare & some black pepper.

The sweet potatoes were just dry baked in the oven for 45 minutes, shaking the pan every 15 minutes, so they didn't stick. The burgers were based on our previous recipe & the bread rolls, Kay made this afternoon. 


We've had 2 wonderful days off & are back to work tomorrow!

That's my kind of dinner (minus the mustard!). I absolutely love sweet potato. I must try making bean burgers too instead of buying them.

I'm not a fan of mushy peas, but the burgers look very yummy x

Hi Teresa - burgers are always great for using up leftover veg & grains.

Becky - We often crave peas or lentils & are just happy to eat a bowl of them, especially with miso, any time of day!

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!

We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?

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...
