A Good Future, Sourdough and A Special Pie

28 Dec

Another piece of timely wisdom from Thich Nhat Hanh came my way today – the beautiful artwork is Evening Swim by Maja Lindberg.

Our lovely neighbour made a Sourdough loaf and gave us half. We had some of it toasted with our lunch of last year’s Christmas Soup. Christmas Soup is a family favourite of turkey stock made from the bones and then everything ‘leftover’ ( potatoes, carrots, parsnips, chestnuts, sausages, stuffing, bread sauce, gravy, turkey meat and everything else but the sprouts) whizzed up to make a thick meal in a bowl. This year we had a duck, there being only two of us but I had frozen and hidden(!) two pint pots of this special treat.

I made a pie tonight – Duck and Lentil – and it was delicious! Many years ago we were on holiday in France, in a gite in a Tournon D’Agenais, a fortified medieval hilltop town on the banks of the Lot River and in a little restaurant there had some amazing Duck and Lentil pie. This is the first time I have tried to replicate it and it was a great success, setting off lots of lovely memories.

    If I ever baked anything that looked so wonderfully lush and lovely and tasty, I wouldn’t want to eat it.
    That’s why I never ever bake anything that looks so wonderfully lush and lovely and tasty! That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.
