Not Much To See Here!!!

Well the sun stayed for a little while and burnt away the mist but now she has gone back to bed and it's all rolling in again.
I don't think it's as cold as yesterday but it's still cold enough that I think we'll light the fire when Andy gets back from having his blood test.

The dining room is now completely clear of festive stuff so I will be working on bringing back my sewing things.....sorting as I go to see if there is anything that can go to the charity shop along with the pile of books I sorted out for them.
Once everything is back and tidy I am hoping to get back into the sewing that I have not been in the right frame of mind to do for so long.

Poor old DD is out in this cold for the day so I am thinking that a nice curry will be just the job to warm her up when she comes in tonight. I don't know what I will have as although I love the smell of curry cooking...I just can't eat it.

A couple of foodie things we tried over the holidays that will definitely be added to the list of things to have again......

Jamie Oliver's Spicy Parsnip Soup
http://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/vegetables-recipes/spicy-parsnip-soup/
Absolutely gorgeous. Everyone loved it including Marlowe.

The Rich Winter Berry and Rum ham....beautiful. Really tasty and moist.
I thought cooking it in apple and blackcurrant juice would make it taste sour but it didn't.
Sorry I can't find the recipe on the A**a website but if anyone ever wants it I have kept the little book it was in so can easily put it on here for you.

......and my new favourite Christmas leftover thing....half of a small crusty baguette filled with thinly sliced turkey, bread sauce, cranberry sauce and squished cold garlic roasted brussels. Oh my word 😋😋😋

Right I am off.
Thanks for dropping by today.

  2. Like you with curry....I love the smell of garlic but can't eat it, it upsets my stomach. Other than that the baguette sounds lovely. Oh....well, maybe not with the bread sauce lol.

    1. Oooooh Sooze....the bread sauce is gorgeous....just a thin smear to get the taste of the cloves and nutmeg.
      It must be something in the spices for me with regards to the curry. I have made a Jalfrezi today and I can eat the tomatoes, garlic, ginger, onion, peppers and chicken individually but not when they are all cooked together with the spices-x-

  4. Ooh! The baguette sounds delicious. We had spicy parsnip soup yesterday, made with the cheap veggies I bought before Christmas. Tasty and warming. X

    1. I'll definitely make the soup again Jules.
      It's a good job there is no more turkey or brussels else I'd be having that at every meal....lol-x-

  5. The festive goodies, although meagre now, are staying out till Fran leaves. What she doesn't want to take with her will be given to one of my neighbours whose boys eat for the UK. I like a crisp baguette filled with any leftovers and a drizzle of cranberry sauce. I am going to check out the soup recipe, I often see parsnips reduced to next to nothing.

    1. I'll be looking out for reduced parsnips to make another panful to see how it freezes-x-
