    We had take away curry as an anniversary treat!

    Last year we canoed on Lock Ness, the year before we had a cottage with a hot tub - this year a night in and bottle of prosecco.

    Not quite the same but considering we're in a pandemic and buying a house (madness!) I think I'll let it pass!

    Chilli pie for tea tonight!

    I told my auntie about it last week and apparently she was laughing about it with my mum!!

    It's an AMAZING creation! More fool them!

    (Sorry about the chipped plate - happened last week - still annoyed at myself!!)

    Homemade Lamb Rogan Josh, both vegan and normal tonight and as that's it work-wise for a month, some wine may be consumed. Moderately, of course.

    What replaces the lamb in a vegan lamb Rogan Josh and what does the vegan version actually taste like?

    I do like a lot of vegetable Indian dishes and whilst I'm not interested in becoming a vegan I do like to try new dishes.

    That looks absolutely lovely, however the only vegetable I’m not keen on is aubergine.
    Would it work with something else, or even just miss it out?

    I have a glut of courgettes so might try and substitute those.

    Well I'm informed that it was really rather nice and she will be having it again. I thought it tasted ok but I preferred the real version.

    Courgettes would do just fine but we're aubergine lovers here.

    I was thinking exactly the same about aubergine.

    Is lamb a vegetable? That might work :)

    Just found a Jamie Oliver recipe that uses butternut squash and cauliflower. Cauliflower goes well with most Indian dishes.

    Also another recipe I found uses potato, sweet potato or pumpkin.

    And one for you to try from the National Trust. Beetroot, carrot & spring onion fritters!

    Ingredients
    200g gram flour
    200g raw beetroot, peeled and grated
    200g carrot, peeled and grated
    1 bunch spring onions, finely chopped
    2 tbsp vegetable oil
    A pinch of salt and pepper

    Method
    Place the flour, salt and pepper into a bowl and combine. Add in the beetroot, carrot and spring onion and combine again. Add enough water to just bind the mixture together. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Once the oil is hot, split the batter mix into 4 and place into the pan.
    Leave to fry for 2-3 minutes until the bottom sets and starts to go crisp. Carefully flip the fritters and cook for a further 2-3 minutes on the other side. Transfer to a baking sheet and place into you preheated over at 180°C for 10 minutes to ensure the centre of the fritter is cooked through.
    Remove from the oven and serve.

    I have had a lot of fresh beetroot this week. I thought I was dying the other day...

    If you are asked to provide a specimen for the doctors, eat lots of beetroot and asparagus the day before, and watch the panic.

    Spent yesterday turning the house upside down and packing - therefore a trip to the pub was well earned!

    Had chips, onion rings and garlic bread for tea - not my healthiest moment!

    Tonight is Mexican salad (spiced couscous, sweet potato, beetroot, red onion, pepper plus any other vege I can find in the fridge!)

    Hopefully that should even it out?!
