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.

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!

Just 4 weeks to go until this year's Earth Hour.
Here's the link to join in: Sign Up For Earth Hour.
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...
