Merry Christmas

There hasn’t been much time for photography or experimenting in the kitchen these last few months so my only offering today is some photos from previous winters.

Wishing you all a very merry Christmas.  Promise to be back with fresh offerings soon.  🙂

Shredded Stir Fried Sprouts

I heard some disturbing news recently.  It seems there may be a shortage of Brussels sprouts this winter.   Hooray, cheer children and sprout haters throughout the land; boo hiss boo, says me.  They’re dinky wee cabbages.  What’s not to love?

Hopefully, the rumours aren’t true as we are crazy about stir fried sprouts at the moment.  Simply fry some garlic and chilli (more than you think you’ll need) in a pan then add a great big pile of shredded sprouts.  Cook over a medium high heat for 3-4 minutes until the greens soften, adding a splash of water if necessary.

We’ve been eating this side dish recently alongside spicy bean enchiladas.  Perfect for munching on the sofa on cold,  dark December nights.
