Back to rainy day cooking again
« on: October 14, 2014, 16:40 »
It must be autumn.  After months of quick and light summer meals I feel the need for some good freezer back ups for warming dinners on work days.

So far I have cooked up a huge batch of chilli and a chicken curry.  Its even better when there is a load of plot veg to use  :D  Both have homegrown onion, garlic and chilli peppers in them.  The chilli has also got fresh anchocha, dried french beans and tomato sauce from the freezer.  The curry has squash and greens in it  :D  :D  :D

I'll swap you some lamb stew with all the works (pearl barley, winter veg, spuds, minty peas ) for some curry.  :tongue2: I'm consider doing a batch of muffins tonight as I want to experiment with rhubarb and custard in them.

My slow cooker came out this morning. Just had beef stew. Only one small pack of beef but tons of veg from the plot and enough for lunch for the whole of the week.

Not really cooking as such, but just peeled the shallot crop and they are all soaking in brine ready to make into pickles tomorrow. 

The last of the beetroot crop from the raised beds at home is simmering away now, ready for making into pickled beetroot  :)
