Spiced Up Leftovers

We often turn leftover pasta sauce into a chilli...
We added some quinoa, tofu, more kidney beans & a fresh chilli.

Then instead of  serving it with cornbread...

We topped the chilli with it... 

Added some pumpkin seeds...

And baked it in the oven for 30 minutes.

Cornbread
150g polenta
100g whole wheat self-raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon ground linseeds
1 tablespoon freshly chopped parsley or coriander a teaspoon of the dried leaves
1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder
2 tablespoons agave syrup
2 tablespoons apple purée
250ml plant milk

Method
Line a 20cm tin if baking separately.
Preheat oven to a medium temperature (180C).
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until it has become like a thick batter.
Transfer into the tin or spread over pie filling.
Bake for 30 minutes.

Chilli Pie...

With all the trimmings...

In between jobs yesterday.

We're off again in a few minutes....

Have a lovely weekend!

I remember following a Nigella chilli recipe that involved a cornbread crust. I liked that bit of it but not the chilli made with cocoa powder, which I realise is traditional, but which didn't tickle my tastebuds. I've often thought of trying it again without the cocoa. It's just the kind of dish you need when the nights draw in.

Cor, yummee! I would not have thought to sprinkle pumpkin seeds on the top!

This time of year I always think of all the wonderful pumpkin flesh that gets binned when people hollow out their jack o lanterns.

Riverford are doing a squash box and I've got one ordered for next week- can't wait!

Nettles

Our garden yesterday. Tall Nettles TALL nettles cover up, as they have done These many springs, the rusty harrow, the plough Long worn out, and the roller made of stone: Only the elm butt tops the nettles now. This corner of the farmyard I like most: As well as any bloom upon a flower I like the dust on the nettles, never lost Except to prove the sweetness of a shower. ~ Edward Thomas ~ Every time we venture out to pick nettles, Sime always goes on about this poem! Anyway, thought I'd share with you the article I've written for next month's Parish Magazine... Our hedgerows are coming alive with food aplenty, but hardly anyone really notices the nettles that surround us, they grow quietly while using their juices to produce a medicine that can bring health. Anaemia, arthritis, rickets, tuberculosis, respiratory diseases, colds, catarrh & lymphatic problems can all benefit from this wonderful wild & free super food. Nettles are ric

Diet And Drugs

Some of you know about my fight with Graves Disease, an auto immune system disorder, which causes an overactive thyroid. Since I was diagnosed 7 years ago, I have made it my business to know everything I possibly could about the condition & this has probably saved my life. I have blood tests on a regular basis & in November last year, I was told that my T4 levels are normal & again in January the same.  My thyroid stimulating hormone was finally starting to work too, after 7 years of lying dormant, so I suggested I came off the anti thyroid drug & my GP's response was to continue for a while longer. A month ago, I rang my GP & suggested again that I come off the drug or at least halve it, as I was feeling so well  & was concerned about the drug pushing me into being under active. Again, she said to be patient & they would send for me when it's time for a blood test. I don't normally do as I'm told, but decided to stick with it a b

Taking The Plunge

Life is set to change again for us. We have had a great time entertaining many B&B guests, but now have decided to stop & concentrate on the things that are far more important. Firstly, ourselves... Sharing our home with many strangers is quite exhausting & Sime in particular has worn himself out giving his all, something neither of us had really noticed until we stopped. Secondly, Bebe (Sime's mum) is going to be moving in with us... Her dementia is progressing, though the conditions she was continuing to live in were obviously not helping. We feel she has been let down by the social care support team, her carers seemed to be excellent on the surface, but in reality - she has been badly neglected. On our last visit, we found her flat in a terrible state. The cleaner had disappeared, her hairdresser had stopped going in & some of the carers didn't even bother to feed her! On top of all this, she has been phoning the police about her hot water &am
