    Went for a long drive yesterday all the way across the border into Devon to get to Miller's Farm shop in Kilmington.  Excellent place should you be in the area.  OH picked up the most humongous steak pasty - it was at least 8 inches long and 6 across and 2 high - and was cheaper than any available on our local pasty shop.  I got a much more dainty cheese and onion one as the OH is not good at sharing.  (beans for the OH & a jacket tater for me)  I've got half my pasty left too!

    tonight is pheasant, new potatoes and salad - Miller's had 2 romaine for 50p so it was hard to say no.  They also had a lovely selection of squashes and pumpkins so we're sorted for a while.

    Gnocchi with garlic and onion tomato sauce and the other half of the caramelised onion and cheese flatbread.

    Have had a bit of a day today so not up to cooking anything that needed lots of prep or kitchen time.

    In laws came for lunch today. I am too tired to manage anything fancy so did a huge pot of burnt aubergine chilli and some rice. It went down well. MIL brought a lovely big vegan Guinness cake with whisky icing and raspberries. Yum.

    @Islandmaid - got some maple syrup and a recipe which I'm going to give to my meat guy and see if he will do me some peameal bacon!  Recipe is for 4+ kilos so I think I might have to freeze some - assuming he does a full pork loin.

    Tonight will be veggie sausage, mash and peas if I am hungry enough.  Lunch was a not very healthy HM bread and marmalade and some HM cookies and I'm stuffed.  If I don't get hungry enough for dinner I'll just have some boiled eggs and soldiers I think.
