Autumn is coming…

Okay, so not exactly Game of Thrones, but it is distinctly cooler this weekend and very wet….

I am craving comfort food, and the only thing that will ‘hit the spot’ is Bangers and Mash… That’s Sausages and Mash for those of you not of these shores πŸ˜‹

I oven cook a dozen sausages, any left overs will be used in lunch boxes – I use the Thermomix to steam the potatoes, then the Kitchen Aid to beat them with butter, salt and pepper – appears to be a lot of appliances to make mash, but it is very good mash and it’s Sunday, a bit of extra time to indulge yourself…



The most important component of this meal is the onion gravy, finely sliced onion, frys in the Thermomix with a blob of veg oil, and cook on speed 1 reverse, heat 100 for 3 mins, then add a litre of water and cook on varoma whilst the spuds cook, then and ‘hold on to your hats’ I add gravy powder 😱🀐😩😫 I know, I should be taken to the culinary naughty step… Β But it tastes good and there is no proper stock to make ‘proper’ gravy….


Pudding will be Homemade ( and homegrown) Apple crumble and double cream.

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
