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.

Flowers, A Spitfire and A Pudding

It’s good that the Alstroemeria are still flowering. I like them and the yellow Canna against the dark red of the red Canna’s leaves.

We watched a Spitfire fly past today! It was doing a circuit of all Cornwall’s hospitals saying “Thank you” to our wonderful NHS. It was a long way away!

Today’s Feast magazine from The Guardian had a Chocolate and Pear Pudding from Felicity Cloake that I just had to make! It was easy and the result, delicious, served warm with a little single cream.

Barmbrack, Snow and Roasted Cauliflower

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!

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.
