I have a mandolin, i have wanted one for ages, but they always seemed so expensive. A charity shop find, still sealed, has inspired me to slice things really thinly.
To make courgette fritters. Again. How many times have i blogged these? here and here
Only this time with home grown pea shoots and these lovely single clove garlic bulbs from Lidl. They come in a basket. I'll pretty much buy anything if it's in a whicker basket.
I am trying to eat less meat, so far that seems to mean lots of cheese and carbs. Baked mushrooms with ricotta and horseradish and more pea shoots. The fridge contains paneer, and halloumi too. Any good vegetarian blogs out there? More nice things with vegetables rather than soya mince.
Just keep your eye on the oven if you attempt the sweet potato and ground almond thing from Rachel Khoo. Admittedly the recipe didn't say wander off for a while and get engrossed in the last episode of The Bridge. Did you watch it? I've never seen an episode of Mad Men, The Killing or any of the Vampire things, but The Bridge was amazing. I miss the music.
In other news i cut small flowers from my garden to take to lunch Chez Mother Hen, and tried to shoot The Hound in a crown. Failed.
and Cityboy1 has written the "How the Greeks leave a non-obsolete currency" post. It will be up tomorrow. I like the idea of men blogging here, I will rustle up some more. Requests being taken on subject matter.
and the former long-jumper hopped, skipped and jumped his way to best in show again. Only this time with topiary. Bravo Mr West, bravo x
And i am very honoured to be Lobster and Swan's Blog of the Jeska's blog is one of ridiculous creativity and prettiness and tiny tigers.
