I promise this will be the last time I mention Christmas for a while!
Over Christmas I froze lots of leftover veg – cooked sprouts, carrots, parsnips etc and today I got them out of the freezer along with some leftover ham that was in there and used them up.
Did the dish have a name – not really, I cooked up a lot of mash, mixed in some blue cheese, mixed the whole lot together, a bit more cheese on top and baked it off in the oven.
Really good – and the last mention of Christmas.
The house feels bigger with all the Christmas decorations down and I have rehung some pictures, moved some photos around, and thought of a few other things I want to do to give the place a lift, including some furniture renovation – but I need better weather for that as it will need to be done outside. I have decided I want to paint the dining room table and chairs and give them new fabric on the seats. I am thinking French Linen colour possibly, we shall see.
