    Default Hey Ho..lets go!!!

    First Leeks and Brussels of the season are being cooked in my kitchen today.

    Although the last of the chilies are being turned into Nigella's Chili Jam [and Chili Drizzle Sauce, just cook for a few minutes less]....

    YAY!!!

    What's going on in your kitchen today?

    Experiment no 4 with soda bread recipes. HFW's version this time, using yoghurt not buttermilk.
    Roasting off the last of my butternut squashes - good crop ruined by frost so they are starting to go mouldy. This means a huge batch of soup and frozen chunks for use in other recipes. I just don't know where to find room in the freezer though.

    Snap Jeanied. Baked my ciabatta and my 2 remaining squash have been cut and are now in the oven. My word, that was hard work.
    I am doing lamb shank for dinner. I wanted some butter beans but can't find them in the freezer. Hopefully some of the squash will be edible. Served with baked potato and cailiflower cheese.
    Apart from that I am in the middle of giving the bathroom a blitz. Tile grouting does get manky don't it.

    Completed all my cooking/bottling for this year, although the chillies in GH are still growing. I made the Nigella recipe a few weeks ago Zazen, it's fab.

    Soup with the last of the battered toms which are past their best for eating raw and then spuds, carrots (VERY proud of this years crop, much better than last year due to better spacing), turnip, onion and parsips with tea. Had the first sprouts last week and was impressed how solid I'd managed to get them this year so will be able to serve them up to in laws on Christmas Day without shame

    Some of us live in the past, always talking about back then. Some of us live in the future, always planning what we are going to do. And, then there are those, who neither look behind or ahead, but just enjoy the moment of right now.

    Which one are you and is it how you want to be?

    It was going to be Apple & Elderberry Jam, but I got sidetracked by a huge bag of kale, pak choi & spring onions.

    So I've just finished scrubbing them, marinading Himself's pork, then we'll have stir fly

    Jam tomorrow, and while the floor's all messy I might as well rack some wine too
