So duck turned into pork with a chilli marinade, cheesy cauliflower, roast potatoes and peas.

Not sure how that happened!

Still belly is now full so we're all happy.

Place your bets on the delivery from Wickes (meant to be last Saturday) actually turning up tomorrow.

Right all inspired by these feasts I've pulled some duck breast from the freezer. Now to dust off the receipe books! 

Oh... and then dust off the kitchen.

I've just thought. I love going to the local butchers, but there's no proper grocers nearby. The butcher closes at midday on Saturday and now I no longer have my Mondays off getting local fresh food is not as easy.

How many people who work 9 -5 Monday - Friday have fed this processed food because despite the cookery programmes and best intentions when you can't go local you go Tesco instead and find it cheaper to get the packet than the fresh.

I wonder if I buy a purple dressing gown Dove will mistake me as her daughter and thus feed me til I pop like the cuckoo chick I am.

Scroggin oh I wish you were a neighbour I would be happy to absorb your excesses in my kitchen. When you walk around the supermarket it is so silly how many things are pre pealed pre prepared probably not at all fresh. But that's what society at the moment seems to need / want.

I do not have enough space to grow all the vegetables we eat. Even though there's only two of us we always seem to need more vegetables! But I don't grow for the convince (even if I do hate visiting the supermarket) or cost. I grow because I enjoy it.

That said: I wish I were organised enough to lay out my vegetable beds so that I could even come close to growing enough food that I could pass excess on to my neighbours. 

Name that poo!!

As someone who belongs to a Facebook group dedicated to raw feeding (which is mostly centred around CHECK OUT MY DOGS BEAUTIFUL POO) I'd be tempted to suggest that this is a meaty eater whose had a chicken / poultry rich meal.

You know I have a dressing gown (red with spots) a gift from his lordship. But he always frowns if I wear it for more than a morning trip to the bathroom. I'd never get away with wearing it around the house like a lady of leisure.

Almost the weekend! Today will either be wonderful or grim. BUT I WILL GET MY BULBS PLANTED THIS WEEKEND.
