Daughter No 3 and LiveWire No 4 are visiting tomorrow! The pie is for a picnic lunch on a coastal walk somewhere and the roasted vegetables will have chicken thighs added tomorrow for Roast Chicken with Mustard, Marmalade , Carrots and Orange. It is so long since we have all been together.

For Roast Chicken with Mustard, Marmalade , Carrots and Orange
Yesterday there was a recipe by Felicity Cloake for Barmbrack (basically a fruit loaf) in our weekend paper. The fruit had to soak in strong tea overnight so I set it going last night. We don’t like cherries so I substituted dried apricots and bits of crystallised ginger. I made the cake this morning and it is fabulous! I glazed it with ginger syrup from the ginger jar rather than making a sugar syrup. Success!
Buttered? Not buttered?
The promised snow eventually came in at 3pm, not enough to make a snowman/woman which I had hoped but enough to make the garden very pretty. Click on any of the photos to see the detail of the birds.

I found a tasty sounding recipe the other day, Roasted Cauliflower with Lentils and tried it this evening. Another scrumptious success.

Soulful Sunday – the snow makes for a very peaceful environment. I love the silence that comes with snowfall.
