Food Sharing


World Vegan Month Day 18.

As well as making the apple compote yesterday, we made a nut roast and apple cake for our communal food sharing supper here at Cotna. 

We whizzed up 150g walnuts, 50g peanuts, 200g bread with juice of half a lemon, a teaspoon each of dried sage and thyme, 1 tablespoon of tomato puree and a heaped teaspoon of miso paste dissolved in a cup of hot water.
Then added our dhal and rice leftovers from Saturday, a pinch of sea salt and sprinkle of black pepper.

Once mixed we put it in a loaf tin and baked it on a medium heat for 40 minutes.

Just so easy to make!


There was also roasted veggies from the garden.


As well as stir fried kale and Brussel sprouts.


Apple Cake... 


Served with Oat Cream and a splash of sloe gin.


And Daisy the Cotna baby was hoping to join us!

See you tomorrow.

Love Kay and Sime xx

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!

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...
