I bought myself some flowers at the weekend… to add a splash of colour in the house now that everything is dying away outside for the onset of winter..
I thought that I would post this picture today, the weather outside is absolutely dreadful, gale force winds and torrential rain… it’s just sooooo horrid…. stay safe everyone
I’m not allowed up on the chairs, mum said…
But today I just couldn’t resist the big comfy armchair….
It’s just waaay too comfy.. and the cushion is soo soft, just made for a puppy’s head
Although technically I’m not a pup anymore…
Whats’s that!! Oh…Oh I think i’ve been caught…
But it’s just sooo warm and cozy up here.. even tho i’ve got dirty paws, my eyes are soooo tired
Nite nite 😉
I was in my local supermarket earlier and I picked up 2 heads of organic broccoli reduced to only £0.03 each!! …. you know what it’s like, your head starts going through possible yummy recipes… my head was telling me soup! 😉 I nipped round to the cheese counter and picked up a bit of stilton.
|This recipe should serve six.
- 50g / 2oz butter
- 1 Onion, finely chopped
- 1 Garlic Clove, crushed
- 2 large heads of Broccoli
- 2-3 oz of Stilton Cheese or adjust depending on your preference
- Freshly ground black pepper and sea salt
- 1-1.5 litres boiling water and a stock cube
- Heat the Butter in a large pan, add the onion and garlic and leave to cook on a low-med heat for 8 mins until they become soft and clear
- Whilst the onion and garlic are softening, chop the broccoli as finely as possible. Add the chopped broccoli to the onions and pour in 1 litre of boiling water an a stock cube and bring back to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
- When the broccoli is tender, add the stilton cheese. Whizz the soup well in a liquidiser to give it a really smooth texture.
- Check and adjust the seasoning and reheat if necessary.
We were clearing / tidying up the garden today and came across these 2 HUGE slugs, they nearly ended up in the skip, but we rescued them and put them in a nice dark damp spot in the far corner of the garden… they both have beautiful markings, i’ll need to do a bit of research and try and get an ID for them..
I’ve not posted on here for a long time… and it’s been getting a tad neglected, so today I decided to put this to rights.
My hubby bought me a new camera last week, its a Nikon Coolpix L100, i’m still getting used to it and have had a few really beautiful pictures and some real disasters lol….
So my post today is pictures from around Scotland.. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did snapping them 🙂
A Jacob Ram snapped with his little lady friend… (Joan over at Mudranch would prob like to see this one 😉 )
Some fungi growing up in the top corner of my garden…
A ruined building in the middle of a field just outside the village of Strathmiglo.. notice the crow sitting on the top right ledge.
Finally a close up shot of Hovis, my birman cat… I just love the expression on his face, the sun was shining in his face so he kinda screwed his face up a bit…
