Watch the Birdie…Roast Partridge And Game Chips

I should start by warning you that I have posted some photos of recently shot birds, no blood or anything, so if  are against that type of thing, this isn’t the post for you.

We live in a semi rural area, and enjoy the things that that brings, we often have freshly shot birds, and rabbits, fresh caught fish etc in their seasons, of course.

We enjoy game, and as these beautiful Pheasant and Partridge were given to us I thought I would cook the latter for dinner today, the Pheasant have been ‘dressed’ and  are sat in the freezer to wait their turn 😀


I will roast the Partridge covered in bacon till the last 10 minutes, to sear the skin.


Served with crispy roast potato’s and parsnips, Savoy cabbage and smoked bacon and game chips.

The game chips are just a parsnip sliced with a peeler and shallow fired, tossed in salt on kitchen paper to get rid of any excess oil.

In readiness for the week ahead, I made sweet potato and parsnip coconut soup and some crispy bread rolls, to dunk in the soup 😋

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...
