Wild And Windy Staffordshire!!!

Boy is it windy here this morning.
I wouldn't dare hang washing out in it else I'd be fetching it back from the next it keeps thrashing it down with rain.

The minted lamb meatballs turned out really nice.
No photo as they were gone before I could blink.

400g minced lamb
1 Tsp salt
1/2 Tsp ground black pepper
2 Tsp dried mint

Mix the ingredients thoroughly and shape into balls.
I got 16 good sized ones from my mixture.
Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Heat a little oil in a frying pan and fry the meatballs until browned all over.
Transfer to a saucepan and add 2 pints of lamb stock.
I used one stock cube.
Simmer until meatballs are cooked and then thicken the gravy with lamb gravy granules which you can now get from T***o. They are quite strong which is why I only used one stock cube in two pints of water for simmering.

Miss Doodle will be here tonight after school so we always have something that she will eat and tonight it is pizza and salad and as it is quite cold I am making a jam sponge and custard for pudding.
I don't often make puddings so I thought I would treat us tonight.
After tea....a little more crafting on the papier mache Christmas tree that Ruby is making and then it will be time for home 😢

DD and I are watching another box set....Lucifer season one which we have watched before but we are refreshing our memories before we start on season two which she picked up the other day.
The heating will be on, we will light my beautiful Goose Creek Maple Butter candle and that will be us cosy for the night.

Hope you all have a lovely day and a nice cosy evening.
