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!
That looks yummy. You eat so well, just great ingredients.

I really should employ you as my nutritionist. :)

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. The food didn't disappoint (see photos). 


Good portions of quality nosh prepared with love and a flair for presentation. Rival cafes, take note: This is how it's done. 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 i…

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 …

Lights Out!

Just 4 weeks to go until this year's Earth Hour.

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

What do you have planned?
