We had celery gratin with braised red cabbage (this was fabulous and I now wish I had more celery)
Spaghetti with tomato sauce from the freezer and some homemade oven-dried tomatoes and a brussel, almond and apple salad (how did I cope with winter salads before George and Tina shared this with me?)
Friday, I got home late from London and so there were emergency chicken enchiladas with refried beans and tomatillo salsa from the freezer (I got the chicken out of the freezer for James’ sandwiches thinking it was a bit of leftover cooked chicken …. it wasn’t)
Then there was a rather nice pork cheek stew that used up the dregs of some bottles of red wine and nearly the last of the carrots – with bubble and squeak (I have been keeping pork cheeks for guanciale but actually I prefer pancetta so cheeks are going into stews from now on)
Yes, we are eating a lot of squash – the butternuts were going squishy – as we still have a lot of other squash left I predict more squash diners – and cabbage ….. although not as much cabbage as I had hoped for … wretched lambs.
N.B. All meat and veggies from the smallholding, coriander courtesy of Kerry – thank you.
