NB. Please only share blog posts. I’m sorry, but links to Facebook posts etc will be deleted.
Like so many people living in lockdown across the world, I am finding that despite being busier than ever, there is a sort of ennui or boredom arising from the current situation. I’m desperate to see my family and friends in real life, but wouldn’t even consider doing it not only because it is against the rules, but also because of the health dangers breaking the rules presents. However, I have found that I am learning new things almost every day, and that this time has been one of tremendous growth both personally and professionally.
What’s Been Happening
We awoke to A Snowy Day this morning, not something we often see in the south of England. Our garden looked like a fairyland and the fields and forest we walk in were transformed.
The snow was beginning to melt on our walk (hence the water marks on my jacket from the snow melting off the trees) but we still enjoyed a lovely, snowy walk. It made me think a lot about Finding Comfort and Hope in A Snowy Day.
I’m making lots of comfort food but I often still want it to be quick and easy.
If you feel the same, don’t miss my easy to make, warming and flavourful Warm Wild Rice Salad with Sausages and Apples. It’s ready in about 30 minutes and it’s kid-friendly too!
Monday is Burns Night, an important occasion in Scotland and among Scottish people worldwide. It’s a celebration of the life of the poet Robert Burns.
A few years ago, I partnered with The Vegetarian Society and shared their recipe for a Not So Offal Haggis (or Vegetarian Haggis). This makes the Burns Night celebrations a lot more friendly for those who don’t meat – or for those, like me who really can’t handle the idea of traditional haggis. Provided you use gluten free oats and Tamari instead of soy sauce, the recipe can also be gluten free.
