I’m not generally a creature of habit but in the past few months I’ve been roasting a chicken every single Sunday night.   Don’t suppose I need another reason than “roast chicken tastes frickin’ amazing” but there is another reason:  leftovers. Free time is not something I have an abundance of right now. Having a big [...]

The days are getting shorter and shorter and shorter and there’s a dusting of snow on the hills over Beauly.  Time to get the woolly hats out of their hiding place.  There’s a lot of folk around here who aren’t too happy about this but I like my woolly hats and I like cosy nights [...]

Sunday is marathon day. Gulp. I’ve been training for months.  But not quite as hard as I could have, perhaps.  The longest run I’ve done in preparation is 18 miles.  People keep telling me that’s fine: if I can do that in training, I can do the extra 8.1 miles on the actual day.  I [...]

Today I’m off to run the Nairn Half Marathon.  13 miles is a distance I’ve done a few times now but I always feel a little nervous about running in events beside real runners.  I still feel like an impostor runner, for some reason.  Why is that???   I mean I move at a pace considerably [...]

I’ve left this post rather late.  Raspberry season (and summer) is fast coming to an end.  There are still a few berries to be found in the raspberry hedges though and bramble time is just around the corner .  Brambles would work perfectly here too, I’m certain. Light and fluffy, sweet and pretty, these little [...]

Potato Salad

Boil some waxy new potatoes (skin on or off, whatever you please) until perfectly cooked.  Cool.  Toss with a dressing of 3 parts olive oil, 1 part cider vinegar and 1 part wholegrain mustard.  Season and set aside for an hour or so.  Serve topped generously with chopped spring onions and parsley.
