Stuffed Greek Vegetables

Standard

…..it 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……

So this colourful, tasty Greek dish was a much needed splash of warmth and colour.  Plus it did for around 4 meals so lovely and frugal and filling, as well as summoning up the blue-hued spirit of the Mediterranean.  What more could you want from a recipe (apart from a hunky Greek waiter to serve it, of course)?

Rocking Horse

Standard

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…….

The original suggests precooking the vegetables, but I found them fine with just the stir fry and baking.  Depends on how firm or squashy yer like yer veggies!

Savoury Vegetable Cake

Standard

Managed to accidentally download Windows 10 (I blame alcohol), which required 5 reboots and quite a lot of unladylike cursing to work, and WHICH THEN PROMPTLY WIPED ALL THE RECIPES I’D BOOKMARKED IN FAVOURITES*.

(*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:
