I have lots of bits and bobs to use up in the fridge, and fancy something hearty, so I pulled some Sausages from the freezer last night and popped them in the fridge to defrost ready for today.

In a heavy based pan or Casserole dish add a good splash of olive oil, add the sausages and cook till browned on the outside- remove and set aside.

a good glass of red wine and a pack of passata, these are strained tomatoes, a thick tomatoey paste 😊

Stir though well and place in a hot (180) oven for an hour.

Remove, add some Spinach and some chopped flat leaf parsley stir through, taste and season – if it’s a bit ‘wet’ – remove the lid and return to the oven for another 15-20 minutes till thick and unctuous.

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...
