Only one thing to do hanging around the house feeling sick and sorry for myself (a bit bluesy today).
OTHER THAN BAKING OF COURSE!
Tonight for dinner I attempted, for the first time, a vegetarian Lancashire hotpot...a stew topped with sliced potatoes and broiled...I adapted a version of butternut and swede stew with dumplings that I had seen in a magazine during the week by adding more vegetables and a itty bitty bit of red wine..oh and foregoing the dumplings by creating a Lancashire hot pot instead.
The finished product was tasty. Next time I will omitt the parsnip though. I am not a fan, it just tastes a bit ICKY to me...personal opinion...but I added them into my stew to TRY them again...ewwww no no no no...sorry, I just couldn't do it. I ate ONE...and left the rest on the side of my plate.
Welcome to 21st century urban housewife! I hope that you enjoy my homely and sometimes scattered postings. I started this blog when my hubby and I first moved-in together. I wasn't working, so I was "keeping house" and writing about it. Since then, we've moved to Edinburgh and I've found myself in the middle of an active and enthusiastic foodie scene. While I'm still on a budget I'm allowing myself some indulgences...
