Red, Gold And Green
These are the colours of my weekend, along with claret & blue of course (big kiss to Super Scotty Arfield). Along with a great victory we had the pleasure of meeting Speedo Mick, who was there in his trademark blue swimming trunks raising money and doing his bit to kick cancer into touch.
Today has been very domesticated, Dan has cut the lawn and tried to wrestle as much greenery into the garden waste bin as possible, he's done a grand job but behind the garage is still stuffed with the stuff. We'll get through it eventually! He's also made some bread. I've been in the kitchen too, peeler in hand, dealing with lots of lovely veg.
Some of it became curried lentil soup
I'll deal with the rest tomorrow. I kept it simple today only using a few other ingredients, the smoked garlic and tamari were used to roast the squash seeds, but they didn't last very long!
I also used a sheet of puff pastry to make a nut roast plait, or as close to a plait as my slapdash approach could manage. While it cooked I made some more flowers for the festive wreath.
Soup and nut roast plait for tea I think!
