Stuffed Greek Vegetables


… was the Easter bank holiday last weekend, 4 days off in total for us Brits.  So of course, in accordance with local bylaws governing long holiday weekends in the UK, it rained, hailed and blew a storm……

Rocking Horse


Somewhat off-colour, and after a day of half-hearted half-snacks, remembered I had a recipe for this creamy, vegetable-heavy dish.  On the table in half an hour, for all your Victorian nursery comfort food needs…….

(*I managed, by random button pressing, to then transfer the recipes from Windows Explorer to Windows Edge, thereby enabling me to cancel the assassin I’d booked for Bill Gates early enough that I only paid the initial booking fee + taxes**).

(**I’ve saved a LOT of recipes to my Favourites).

In the meantime, please enjoy this tasty potato and vegetable cake, original found here:
