Here is another classic page from my mum's cookery book. I like this one, 'Potatoes with Personality.' It catagorises some of the heartier recipes as 'he-man suppers.'
That has given me an idea for my own cookery book: Recipes for Rogues and Rascals. I have already made a start planning the chapters.
- Ne're-do-well nibbles
- Scallywag Sandwiches for Scoundrels
- Rum Cove Cup Cakes
- Dastardly Dinners for Desperadoes
- Meals for Vagabond Vegetarians
- Breakfasts for Blackguards
- Lunches for Lotharios
- Feasts for fiends and miscreants
and of course, Swarthy Rogue Suppers (which will include Cauliflower Cheese a' la Rochester).
Another treasured item from my mum that I have. Her camera. She took thousands of pictures of us all when we were little. I have it on display in my study, I keep meaning to try it out.
And finally, another couple of images. A new cushion (you know my obsession with soft furnishings). And some lovely sweet williams. Another of my favourite flowers, they used to grow in our garden at home, growing up.
