Robin, Lunch and Boxes

30 Oct

Watching the birds has been a joy over the last few months and now that it’s getting colder, the feeders are getting busier. This little robin is at the top of Mum’s old pan stand which I use for flowers in the summer.

I love making a Frittata using leftovers! In this one were some potatoes, Calabrese, pesto pasta, half a yellow pepper, some spinach, the last shallot and some  cheese. It was very tasty.

We have delivered our Christmas dinners in a box.. This is a scheme where a whole Christmas dinner plus treats are packed up in a decorated box and distributed, via the council, The boxes are given out by Cornwall Council’s teams working with vulnerable and impoverished families, the poorest in Cornwall, to give them something for Christmas. Nearly 1000 were donated last year.  If you are local and would like to contribute, here is the link.  
Sadly, even before Covid, 1/3 of the children living in Cornwall were living in poverty. I hope there are even more boxes donated this year by those who can.

    You have so many varied talents and interests. Never a dull moment. Things aren’t dull here in the States now, either, but we’re all in a state of high anxiety facing a momentous election.

    Are the Christmas Dinners distributed now?
    Or do they have to be refrigerated for the next 7-8 weeks?

      Most of the stuff is tinned. With any other items like them once pies, it is important to make sure that the use by date is after 25th December. 🙂
