Can anybody explain what Blog lovin is ? I keep seeing it and have no idea what it is !
Getting ready to go fishing tomorrow. As we are going for the week and staying at our friend's I am taking as much food with us as is practicable. Have dug up some Sarpo Miras and Pink Fir Apple potatoes and picked beans, tomatoes, plums and peppers. I shall take some eggs, jam and chutney. I've made a lamb curry and some cheese sauce for a pasta meal.
I've also made a Rabbit and belly pork meat loaf, which is very tasty and easy to make. -
You will need -
Meat from one rabbit
2 slices of belly pork
Two slices of streaky bacon (Lidl bacon bits)
Three cloves garlic
Mince these four ingredients and mix together with -
salt and black pepper to taste
teaspoon each of chopped parsley,sage and thyme
half a teaspoon of mace
Quarter pint of (preferably) white wine
( If you have a slug of brandy too so much the better)
Pile the mixture into an ovenproof dish, place in a roasting pan of water and bake for one and a half hours at 160/325 or gas mark 3.
Can be eaten hot or cold, but I prefer it cold with chutney on home made bread.
I know that some people are upset at the thought of eating rabbit meat. It is a sustainable, low fat, high protein meat and I believe, may well be a food resource of the future for those who eat meat.
EGD has spent the day here, making preserves for Christmas presents. She had a day off work and it was lovely to work together discussing what we could make next and how it could be wrapped.creatively. While she was stirring away I was sorting the buckets of plums that covered half of the kitchen floor. Some went into another batch of jam, some went into the freezer towards the wines I shall be making when I get back from Cornwall. The rest were too soft and bruised so they went to the hens, who LOVE them! When Annie our goat was still with us she use to love plums. She would move them around her mouth, with her cheeks bulging and then spit out the stones across the goat house ! I think we fed her more than we should have, just to see her spit out the stones!
Off to finish packing now. I have remembered to pack my spare mouse, so that I can use J's (my friend) laptop. It takes me forever to use it without a mouse and I am hoping to do a spot of blogging while we are away. So blogging friends, will keep in touch.
