A New Look

A new look for the site.

The theme I use for this site – Magazine Premium – started throwing errors after my migration and software update, saying it was incompatible with the current versions.

Veg Trough Update, June 2020

The work that went into clearing and and rejuvenating my vegetable troughs seems to be paying off. All but one of my troughs are doing great … all in all, I don’t think it is a bad showing. Later, I will take some pictures of my tomatoes and fruit plants.

Pasta Evangelists

I’ve ordered this twice before, the last order in March. I have to say, the pasta is really nice and the sauces great. But last time, when I should have gotten 3 pots of parmesan and 1 pot of (similarly coloured) bechamel, I ended up with just 1 pot of parmesan and 3 of….

Christmas Cabbage

An easy to prepare side dish for any festive meal. This was one of two dishes I cooked in advance (the other being mashed swede), so I didn’t have too much to do on Christmas Day.
