Whispering in the Wires


I’m still working out the finer technical aspects of this for my own blog *unscrews lid, peers inside*, but a few people have been working out how to the do the Internet equivalent of sending Terry Pratchett’s name through the Clacks, as a tribute on his recent passing.  The WordPress friendly version is here:


Good luck!

In between posting heartfelt “ooks” on various forms of media at pTerry’s loss, and working 6 day weeks, I managed to invent a quite passable sausage, stilton and cabbage casserole.  Those looking for a true one-pot meal may wish to add parboiled sliced potatoes in the dish before putting it in the oven; I just went for a side serving of plain white rice.

Cabbage, Sausage & Stilton Casserole

One sweetheart cabbage, sliced into strips

One white onion, chopped finely

One fat garlic clove, chopped finely

Six vegetarian sausages, sliced widthways into slices around half cm each

Some vegetable stock

Chunk of stilton or other blue cheese

Salt and black pepper

Oil (vegetable or olive)

Heat a pan of boiling, salted water and add the cabbage strips, blanch for 5 minutes then drain.

In a wok, heat some oil and gently fry the onion and garlic for a few minutes, then add the sausage and fry lightly for a few minutes more.

Pour the onion/sausage mix and cabbage into a casserole dish, season with black pepper.

Pour over a little hot stock (enough to cover around a third of the mixture).

Crumble in the stilton.  Mix well.  Place on the lid and bake in the oven at medium heat for approx. 25 minutes.
