A Simple Sausage “Supper”

 ”Supper” is one of those words which has a slightly different interpretation depending on where you live.  Hours spent trawling through Nigel Slater’s books has led me to believe that in England “supper” means a light dinner/evening meal.  In the the north-east of Scotland, however, ”supper” covers evening meals regardless of how light or heavy they are.  And [...]

Golden Vegetable Curry

I’m home.  It’s been two weeks since I was last in my own wee kitchen and two weeks since I was in a situation to cook whatever I liked.  Before I even unlocked my front door, I knew what I wanted make.  For days I’d been dreaming about a warming, veggie packed curry served with [...]

Recently Antonia and Megan tagged me for a “Seven Things Meme”.  I’ve completed this one a couple of times before but memes are great for weeks like this.  They’re fun and they don’t require a lot of thought.  So here I go again.    1.  As I’ve said before, I sleep walk fairly regularly.  In my most [...]

Mystery Vegetable # 2

Last year I posted a picture of a strange onion growing in my Dad’s garden.  He’d got the seeds from someone who’d got the seeds from someone who’d got the seeds from someone.  Neither Dad or his seed friend knew what they were but were happy to grow and eat them. The above is my [...]

Cooking for Kids

 For the last week I’ve been cooking for children as well as adults.  This has been a new challenge for me and it hasn’t been straightforward.  Everything unusual has been viewed with deep suspicion and many of my staple dishes have been rejected in the planning stages.  If this were long term I could work [...]

Winter Salad

 It’s the start of a four day weekend and I’m more than ready for it.  Until Tuesday I am not going to think about classes and I’m not going to open the cupboard where I’ve stashed my pile of marking.  Instead, I’m jumping in the car and heading down to the Borders to spend the weekend with good friends, good [...]

Carrot and Red Lentil Soup

It seems a little early for another soup post but then I am eating a lot of the stuff these nippy winter days.  Especially for lunch.  The following has recently been my favourite soup to make on a Sunday afternoon and to see me through the weekday lunches in the staffroom.  It’s not fancy but [...]

A Lighter Egg Spread

I’m still working on my New Years resolution, eating breakfast at home.  Can’t say it has been a daily success but I’m still trying!  Weekend breakfasts with their lack of time constraints are an entirely different matter, of course.  Eggs (sorry Johanna) tend to feature quite heavily at these meals.  Poached, fried, boiled, scrambled - I love [...]
