I actually do use smoked haddock (I’d forgotten 🤔) when making Cullin Skink, but as it is very hard to purchase these days for some reason. I guess I didn’t relate it to mum’s terrible cooking. 😃😃
I normally split and bbq full sized zucchini, but these are very, very small, so I bbqed them whole in butter. As Mr P can’t eat onion or garlic, I couldn’t flavour them. I also bbqed broccoli. The flowers go slightly crispy…quite nice.

It’s the weekend already and I’m rather pleased 2 weeks of lockdown has passed so quickly.
2 FDs done so far this week and I’m aiming to make today the 3rd. Non FDs are still a challenge, Tuesday was fine but Wednesday I wanted to eat everything in sight!
Autumn continues it’s journey into winter and it’s been a mixture of sunshine and rain.
I’ve not ventured far this week as I’m very keen to avoid those who think they’re immune to Covid and don’t need to take precautions…
One of my favourite recipes is tofu and sprouting broccoli roasted then dressed with a fierce garlicky, chilli, miso dressing. I love the crispy flowers.
I’m also fond of roasted cauliflower.
I’ve been watching the tennis finals this week taking place in London for the 12th and final time. I would usually attend for a couple of days and it’s really sad not to be able to go this last time. Despite there being no spectators the tennis has been very good.
Have a good weekend everyone 🤪
Glad you are surviving your lockdown. SA has dodged a bullet tonight with there just introduced lockdown being reversed on new information!
I’m not a fan of tofu. I’ve had too much badly presented tofu over the years.😐
I’m laid up with a leg injury, so have no idea what’s happening in the world outside, but plenty of opportunity to read books. 2 fasts under the belt this week.
We’ve had a noisy thunderstorm tonight, so the veg gardens will be happy. It always staggers me how quickly plants grow on freshly refurbed soil. Even the very hot days when they look dead, they buck up again as darkness falls…plenty of reserves below the surface. ☺
I started eating tofu when I did my vegetarian Lent in order to stop myself eating too much cheese and too many eggs and I still buy it occasionally. If it’s roasted until the edges are crispy and dressed up in a powerful sauce it’ll do as a source of protein on a FD.
It’s also OK in Pad Thai as there are so many other interesting flavours.
I had some lovely tofu that was light, but crispy on the outside in a Japanese restaurant a few years ago. Mr P developed a soy allergy years ago when he was a vegetarian, so has never eaten it since. Nuts are my go to when I want an alternative to eggs or cheese. P

Time is flying! Soon we will be out of lockdown and into…err…one of 3 new lockdown tiers. Then come December 23-27, new rules will apply so we can infect our vulnerable and elderly and overwhelm the NHS. No New Year celebrations, just tighter restrictions again in January to look forward to…
But hey, it’s not all doom and gloom! At least it looks like 2021 will see an end to the worst of the pandemic and Trump will be leaving the WH 😁
I’ve been really up and down mood wise, and struggling to find motivation for weight management. So while I am managing one liquid only fast a week, I have been failing a second day. So much for ‘plenty of time left in 2020 to lose my excess’ !
Sorry to hear about your injury P, does this mean someone else is going to have to organise Christmas this year?!
Amazon, I want to come and live with you 😊 I like tofu but have fallen out of the habit of it and menus are once again depressingly meat-based. I’m not sure why it’s still my job, but seeing as I am cooking for the entitled baby bird I end up doing stuff I know he’ll eat. To be fair, he has cooked a couple of times in the last couple of weeks…meaty fatty stews, potatoes with everything… I really must sit down with the recipe books and get re-inspired to cook healthy veggie food that I want to eat!
Hmmm Happy…your post reads like an emotional roller coaster! It really is a mind blowing tactic to have 6 days free rein to spread as much COVID as possible over Christmas! From where we sit, we are SO thankful for sensible, early Government action: closing international borders and managing quarantine, testing and tracing exceptionally. They have announced, today, that we could have up to 50 at our home, outside, and 30 inside. I have no intention of having hoards here. Luckily it is my turn off at Christmas this year, so I can just sit around like a princess. 🙂 There is SOME advantage in being incapacitated.
Fasts continue, twice a week, with Mr P managing our meals. He’s a good learner and follows instructions well, now. Low carb, heavy on vegetables.
I’m sure your years of training are paying off, Happy. You don’toverindulge. P
I am struggling at the moment due to back pain and sciatica which is driving me crazy.
I’ve tried ice packs, anti inflammatories, rest, stretches and nothing appears to be working.
I’ll give it another few days and if there are no signs of improvement I’ll contact my GP although I’m not sure what she’ll be able to do unless she can refer me to a specialist
I’ve been able to fast but it’s merely damage limitation as I’ve lost my way on NFDs.
Such is life.
I remember years ago when being a vegetarian was unusual and often perceived as weird and no-one knew how to cater for someone who didn’t want to eat meat.
I have a friend who has 6 siblings and his mother could not (or would not) cope with his diet so would dish him up whatever was for dinner minus the meat and stick a lump of cheese on his plate!
I need to get the books out again and make a list of as yet untried veggie dishes and work my way through them.
I’m having Hugh F-Ws tomato dhal today which will mean more space in the freezer for mince pies 😆
I must have missed something in one of your posts, are you injured? If so I hope it is improving.
Have a good one everybody 🤪
Yes Amazon. Broken bones, so I can’t walk. Makes it hard to steal snacks. ☺😉
Poor you, I hope you make a swift and uneventful recovery.
Sorry Purple to hear about your injury.
And Amazon sorry too that you are in pain.
I hope you both get more comfortable soon.
My knee is sometimes unbearable. I see the surgeon in 2 weeks. I guess I will have the op in the early year.
Very rainy here. But vertical rain.
Thanks A. Maybe by Xmas 😑
You go and see the doc. You can’t ignore pain…I know, I tried to! 😏

I hope everyone is well.
The days are flying by and our “lockdown” will be over on Wednesday when shops, restaurants etc can open albeit with limitations.
My back is slowly improving which has lifted my mood and since I posted on Wednesday morning I’ve completes 2 FDs and have managed to stop the comfort eating.
My annual trip to Kew Gardens for their Christmas lights trail and dinner has been confirmed and I’m really looking forward to it in just over 2 weeks time. I’ve set myself a mini goal to work towards between now and then.
Despite all the doom and gloom Christmas lights are appearing everywhere and people seem to be wearing their masks and getting on with life as it is right now.
I am hoping the majority look at the future beyond Christmas and behave sensibly, having a quiet Christmas at home is the best way to keep everyone safe.
I put a glazed nut topping on my Christmas cake yesterday and it was all I could do not to cut myself a slice there and then! It’s now safely tucked away out of sight.
I have two more cakes to decorate but as I’m not keen on icing it won’t be so tempting.
Enjoy the remainder of the weekend everyone 🤪
I’m pleased you will be able to see the Christmas lights at Kew again this year, Amazon. I know how much you always enjoy them. Also pleased your back is making progress.
I’m still incapacitated, but with the weather a massive heatwave this weekend, it’s ok being hunkered down. Very little hunger, too, so all is not too bad.

Sorry to hear about all the woes and lows, both physical and mental. Please send some of your rain north, Wi. Our forecast falls today have avoided this part of the island, but I see you have been cut off from the rest of us by flooding 🙁
Our daughter and grandson have been back with us a fortnight now, settling in well and relishing the more temperate weather and relaxed environment. She’s taken over the kitchen for the weekend – no complaints here, she’s a better cook than I am – and we are planning to gather family here for Christmas lunch. Cold ham and salads, with lots of trimmings! She’s made the cake.
We continue to enjoy the lowest Covid level, with the only restrictions being at the border, and mask-wearing on public transport, and the usual encouragement to wash hands and keep a little separated. Too many people are being lax regarding using the tracer ap though, just hope it doesn’t come back to bite us all.
Life is pretty similar here, Barata…. except for our 40 deg, incredibly windy, day. We are very lucky that our island nations have kept the international borders firmly shut.
A cool southerly is due here this afternoon, so we should have some relief after a couple of horror days. At least I don’t feel hungry!!!
Enjoy having your daughter around to share the kitchen 😉 P

I hope everyone is well.
My week has flown by and I’m pleased to report it contained a couple of FDs.
I’ve decorated my Christmas tree and it makes me smile every time I look at it.
I received an invitation from my niece to join her and her family in Kew Gardens on Boxing Day which I happily accepted and we’ve booked our tickets.
I’ve also arranged to visit her on 23rd to drop off her Christmas cake and gifts for the boys.
I’ve been busy this week catching up on lots of little things that need doing around the flat and it’s taken longer than expected, note to self, stop putting things off 😆
The weather has been cold, down to single figures every day and we’ve had a couple of frosts. It’s definitely winter :brrr:
Have a good weekend everyone 🤪🎄
With all the traumas this year, I have great trouble even imagining that it’s December, let alone getting someone to get Xmas decorations out. We aren’t doing anything over Christmas, our family does alternate years with inlaws, so just a quiet, ordinary time for us. It’s been such a weird, unbelievable time with the long, long drought, then the terrible bushfires, followed by floods and damaging storms, and then the virus and all the shut downs. The last straw has been an injured leg so that I am utterly restricted. Better to just act “normal” and not pretend to celebrate anything until at least March 2021.
Looking for positives, fasts are going ok in this warmer weather and I have plenty to read. P
