I'm not generally fond of apples, but that sounds yummy!

Well, good news, yes, bad news, coming to the drummers is a 3 hour each-way trip from Bristol :(

I managed to grow borlotti beans this summer - had about 200g of dried beans for my (poor) efforts!

Tonight we had bean and sausage stew (Italian style)

Basically sausages turned into meatballs cooked in tomato and stock sauce with the cooked beans added in.

I loved it but I'm under instruction to use passata instead of tomatoes next time...

Oh and plenty left for stew lunches :D

Had un exploded poached eggs for breakfast ( a bit over cooked, but resembling eggs and not a Jackson pollock painting )
Tonights dinner is cottage pie, with loads of steamed veg, and gravy , might make a Wobbler for pud.

Last night - fragrant Thai chicken curry (too much harissa so that's why I'm calling it fragrant. And yes I KNOW harissa is a Mediterranean/middle east spice, it just happens to work extremely well with the Thai spice palate)

Tonight ... ? Not sure. Are we eating after your lecture Pat :D

I'v been mining snaggy leftovers for the past few days. Tonight it's the remnants of the venison in raspberry sauce with sweet red pepper soup. While I'm glad to see the last of a few things, it means I have to cook this weekend or starve next week. Have put thin pork chops and a butterflied leg of lamb in the reefer. Pork will get stewed. Lamb is too small to roast so I need some inspiration (lamb with green beans, sweet peppers, and bananananananas might happen)

Following on from the extremely fantastic eating experience in New Orleans, I am going to try out a Gumbo recipe on my friends this evening! Watch out for details of the outcome.

I restocked the freezer this weekend with 6 quarts of chili and 8 quarts of spaghetti sauce, and tried a new recipe for Moroccan lamb stew (with carrots, potato, rutabaga, prunes, raisins, tomatoes, onions, garlic, chickpeas, and half the spice cabinet) served over couscous. Yum! Lunch for the next few days, too. :D Will use sweet potato instead of white potato next time, to keep with the orange vegetable scheme.
