What with winter closing in, we’re battening down the hatches and thinking of heartier fayre on the food front…any excuse for some good old Co Antrim stodge – a few pounds on the hips means we can turn the thermostat down on the ancient oil guzzling boiler (we’re in the process of choosing a wood burning stove but that’s for another day) so we’re really just doing our bit for the environment.
Tonight’s dinner – mixed game casserole – our local Sainsbury are now selling packs of mixed game pieces, (last night we had venison steaks with root veg) so I looked for a tasty recipe and found a lovely one with red wine and beef stock – you can find it here. Of course I couldn’t quite stick to the recipe so I added our own home grown root veg before sticking it in the oven (potato, carrot, parsnip, turnip, beetroot) also a few tablespoonfuls of my recently made Blackberry Oxymel from James Wong Grow Your Own Drugs – Throughout The Year what a fab book!
Anyways – needless to say I now can’t move…had to have seconds and then there was so little left, it wasn’t worth keeping for another day so polished off thirds…am forcing myself to down a few glasses of red wine just to help with the digestion of course.
Saturday night is foodie night – we’re watching back to back 2 episodes of Great British Food Revival followed by this morning’s Saturday Kitchen – that’s what happens when you grow your own – you become food obsessed (or is it just us????)
Sorry the photos are so bad but I have no patience and the kitchen light not good.
