Grub Up

We shared lunch with Rose & Asa today.
 The food was actually better than it looks in the photos, but we forgot to get one of it served up on the plate...

Cottage pie made with yesterday's leftovers, plus some miso & parsley added to the mash.

Roast squash & garlic, mashed together with a little oat milk, black pepper, lemon juice & a liberal sprinkle of nutritional yeast. 
We cut the squash in half & removed the seeds, placed it face down on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. The bulb of garlic, sprinkled with smoked paprika & wrapped in foil was added to the tray too. We cooked them in the oven on a medium heat for 45 minutes, then scooped out the squash from the skin into a bowl & added the puréed garlic (just squeeze from the cloves like a paste). We then mashed with the above ingredients & put it in the oven for 15 minutes... Which would have browned the dish - if the oven had still been on!!! 
Never mind, it was still good!

Steamed veg - there is also kale, courgettes & carrots underneath the cabbage!

We finished with Cardamom & Lime Polenta Cake which we'll share the recipe for tomorrow...

A lovely time & Bebe was on top form yet again - entertaining us all with her songs & silly stories...

See you tomorrow!

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.  
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 …

Last Night...

It's always nice to get-together with all the kids... 
It's also very rare!
But last night we managed to all see the old man's band play...
Which was a nice thing to do, though I have to admit - I really didn't like the pub! There were certainly a few characters around.  Being country bumpkins - a Friday night in a large town centre pub isn't really my idea of a good time & I just found myself feeling very uncomfortable in that environment, just so glad the kids were there too!
There wasn't any trouble, but it felt like there could have been at any time!
The band played well, but only the landlady of the pub seemed to really appreciate them. Such a shame for great musicians to play to a disinterested crowd, but that's the way it goes...  I suppose these experiences will only spur the guys on to get what they really want & take a step up to the next level - where they deserve to be!  Here's a video of them performing California from last night.


Bye for now. …

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?
