Welcome into the kitchen, come on in this week we are serving up Roast Pumpkin and Polenta Salad with Hake. I enjoyed it the fish so much last week that we had it again this weekend with the boys. I gave Nigel Slaters Hazelnut chocolate cake with sultanas a go from his 2018 Autumnal recipe selection. A labour of love…but definitely a keeper. If you were staying for tea we’d be having braised lamb with home-made pasta, followed by a slice of the cake.
I’ve got two books on the go at the moment…a novel. The Memory Stones, Caroline Brothers….one of those rare moments of luxury where you get to browse a bookshop, feel the covers, check the shelves and choose something new and inviting. A welcome change from some of the management books I’ve been reading of late. Then I broke my promise to myself around the new Nigel Recipe book – Christmas Chronicles. In my defence it was on offer and starts from November in terms of the recipes.
I’m grateful for the extra hour today….the clocks went back! Imagine what you could do if someone gave us an extra free hour every weekend!
I’m now counting days rather than weeks to a 10k race I entered months ago. The last 10k I did was the same race last year! I’ve been training on and off and got myself up to the 7.5k mark, hopefully it’s enough. Have to say my back is twinging at the thought of it.
For the cinema goers amongst you….I can definitely recommend Thor: Ragnarok. Full of good humour and a great addition to the Marvel Studios range of films.
Enjoy your week, and hopefully see you next week at the table as part of the #DSFWeeklyRewind.
