After we'd watched and enjoyed Nigel Slater's Christmas Suppers on television over the weekend in which he created five simple suppers from left overs, in fact we've enjoyed the whole series of simple suppers over the last few weeks, we realised we had all the ingredients for two of the meals he prepared. So below you see open, flat mushrooms with blue Stilton and walnuts - very tasty and........
......warm, crumbled Christmas pudding on vanilla ice-cream - lovely!
Other 'leftovers' we have found in the garden!
One of our heather plants, which overhangs the steps up to the lawn, had completely covered them - broken by the weight of the snow it has supported for the last few weeks.
The water in the water butt, which stands at the back of the greenhouse, had frozen and expanded causing the bottom of the container to turn into a 'weeble' like shape, unlike the weebles though it did fall down!
I've just spent an hour in the garden checking the plants, cleaning bird baths and feeding areas and sweeping the patio - I've really enjoyed being able to get out into the garden again.
