Fishy Things And Rugs!!!

The fish recipe I tried out yesterday was really very nice.......


Red onion, garlic and peppers sauteed until soft then I added some chopped sundried tomatoes, a carton of passata and a little veg stock with a pinch or two of basil and oregano and some Hawaiian red salt and fresh ground black pepper. Simmered together for a few minutes then added the pollock fillets and simmered for a little longer until the fish was cooked.
I will make it again when I can get some cod or haddock at a reasonable price as the pollock to me is a bit tasteless.
It was a hit with Andy and DD anyway.

The rug..........


......not an expensive one but I have a filthy dog and a husband who refuses to remove his outdoor shoes but it will do it's job and covers up quite a bit of the nearly worn out carpet which we can't replace until we have had the woodburner put in as I want to change the size of the hearth.
The coffee table is a bit battered but it was a £5 bargain from an antique shop and is a 'project in waiting'.

Well it's a nice breezy day so I think I'll go and hang some washing out. It's a load which includes the comedy dress so I will probably take a pic of that when it's dried and ironed and post it tomorrow.
I also have to make some cauliflower cheese today as Andy has requested it with some sausages for tea. It's not my most favourite meal so I might investigate the salad drawer and have a bowl of salad with some cold sausages.

Tomorrow will hopefully see us having two new additions to the household as Andy is picking Ruby up to take her to Pets At Home to see if they have a pair of guinea pigs that can be adopted.
I love that they rehome unwanted animals rather than selling from a breeder.

Rightio....I will go and crack on with a couple of jobs and then onto my next sewing project which is a maxi skirt for Ruby in the same fabric as the comedy dress.....I had lots left, Ruby loved it so that will use that up and save me storing it.

Have a lovely day.

  1. Just catching up with you now that I have the internet once again. I am not a fan of Pollock either but the recipe for the sauce looks amazing.

  3. Glad the fish dish worked out well. Looks lovely! I have to say I'll take your cauliflower and cheese if you don't want it. It's one of my favourites!

    1. I'm gonna have to bite the bullet and go with the cauliflower cheese as there's not much to make a salad out of :( -x-

  4. One of my favourite chefs once said that all white fish was just a vehicle for the sauce. I like the sound of the meal,so along the lines of my cooking. I use fresh ginger and a little green chilli without the seeds in most of my recipes.
