November already! Comfort food needed… Sausage and Mash…

Ok – Where did the rest of the year go? It feel impossible that it is already November, as we slip back into that twilight period of it being dark when we leave for work, and dark when we come home – comfort food is needed….

I have some lovely Pork and herb sausages with very high meat levels (89%) not only does this mean that there are less fillers but that they are tastier and less shrinkage.


I am oven cooking the sausages, and add a finely sliced large onion to the oven tray, to add to the gravy.


Whilst these are cooking, I cut up 2 large baking potatoes and boil in salted water till very tender, then mash with a splash of milk, a knob of butter and salt and pepper till smooth and creamy.


Serve these classic basics with buttered peas and thick onion gravy – what’s not to like 🤗

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...
