Becksie loves cooking – fact!
But just lately Becksie feels a little bit like she has lost her kitchen mojo! Now this, Becksie thinks can be linked to feeling tired, having a few kitchen knock backs and the dis-organisation that clearing the ingredients cupboard for live below the line has caused! Add to this tough realisations that Becksie is not the gardener, sewer or knitter she’d really like to be creativity is at an all time low!
What to do? Well the answer is get organised in the cupboard department, achieve something small in sewing, knitting and gardening and spend sometime reading recipe books! Or maybe not worry for a while and simply watch a film or read a book! Maybe another holiday (we wish)! Nah a holiday is out of the question and Becksie gets ants her pants when it comes to most films. So…………. Recipe books and small targets it is.
So over the next few days Becksie will
A) do five rows of knitting
C) tidy up the ingredients cupboards
D) plant something that will grow food (and look after it)
E) cook a few new recipes
Tonight’s dinner was – pan fried venison in a juniper and port sauce (easy peasy one garlic clove, some juniper berries, salt, pepper, blackberry vinegar, chili oil and liberal glug glug glug of port). Served with fresh peas, cabbage,whole carrots and sweet potato and potato mash! Yummy – this is not just any old food this is a year without supermarkets food!
Right then on with the sorting, knitting, sewing and planting!
