It is very cold, damp and gloomy in Lincolnshire today, a proper winter’s day. I just let Rick out the door and he sniffed the air, turned around and shot back indoors.
When it’s this cold my mind always turns to comfort food. Yesterday we had a hearty minestrone soup for lunch and then pork and apple casserole with mashed potato for supper. Apple turns up quite a lot in our meals these days! Today we have more soup and then tonight I’m baking some salmon fillets with macaroni cheese. Not sure if that works but I’ve got a hankering for mac ‘n cheese.
Work on the garden has been suspended until the sun comes out again. We have huge piles of wood cuttings, brambles and ivy scattered around. Paul is planning to load the trailer and take it to the local organic waste recycling plant. Otherwise we will have to bag it up individually before taking it to the ordinary recycling centre. The leaves will get raked up and dumped straight onto the compost heap.
But today we are staying indoors, keeping warm and eating!
