Mousse


Earlier this year, we discovered raw avocado chocolate torte at the veggie cafe in Truro.
It was a complete revelation to us & since then, I've discovered most of our vegan cookbooks have avocado dessert recipes, weird that I'd never noticed before! Occasionally, we get avocados in our veg box, so this is a delicious way of using them...

Carob & Orange Mousse
Serves 4
2 avocados
6 tablespoons carob
Zest of 1 orange
3 tablespoons of orange juice
8 tablespoons maple syrup
Optional: replace 1 tablespoon of orange juice with orange liqueur 

Whizz up the ingredients together until a thick & glossy mass of mousse.
Refrigerate for a couple of hours & serve.

Unfortunately, we don't own any fancy dessert bowls... 
But it tasted just as good! 

We've had 3 days off work, which is always nice - so this morning we decided to go down to Mevagissey & enjoyed a few hours wandering around...

It was so peaceful!

Will share more photos soon.

Night, night.

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 …

Top Of The World

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…
