Good Food, and Scenery to die for.

Sunrise this morning, from the study window, the weather here has been amazing for the last few weeks, it's hard to believe that it will be December tomorrow. It might not be hot, but it's not too cold and very good walking weather.

A few photo's of food this time, and most of it appears to be very pale. Not for any reason, it just worked out that way.

First a fish pie, I acquired some mixed fish pieces and as we hadn't had a fish pie for a while, this was the result.
I made the sauce with milk, grated cheese, mixed herbs, mustard and Cornflour. It needs to be practically solid because the fish moistens it as it cooks.

Add your chunks of fish,

and mix together, then top with mash.

After about 45 minutes in a 180 degree oven, as you can see it's got runnier.

As you will know, if you have been following the bread blog (and if not, WHY NOT) I have been making Mincemeat flavoured teacakes, well I had the dregs of a tub of mincemeat left over, it was too runny to use for much else.

So I brought some double cream and mixed it together, then put it in my trusty Ice-Cream maker, (an impulse buy years ago, but one that has been worth it)

an hour later this was the result, a litre of ice-cream. (Yvonne has a sore throat, so it's medicinal)

Lastly, today we had Sausage Casserole, using sausages we got at Totnes Good Food Market .

Browned and cut into chunks,

Added some veg,

and made a sauce from Tomato Puree, mixed Herbs,  stock and seasoning.


Six hours later, it looked good.

and finally a walk around Sharkham, it was a stunning afternoon, as you can see.

Looks nice? I can't believe how lucky I am to live here, good food, great people and scenery to die for.
