One Woman's Journey through Her Cookbooks
Well hello there! It’s been some time since I posted!
A lot has been happening in Chez SPC which has had nothing to do with cooking. In fact, I kinda lost my mojo in the cooking department. You see, my eldest lad has been quite unwell having developed ulcerative colitis and its taken since December 2015 to find the right medication to get him well again. Not that he’ll ever be the way he was before. It’s a case of getting into remission and hopefully, staying there. Since only six weeks ago, we’ve found the right meds and he’s doing great!
It’s been quite a stressful time over the past two years to be honest and I found I needed to step on the back burner for a while so I’ve been spending my days knitting like there’s no tomorrow. I’ve been tending my allotment too. Rather sporadically but… It hasn’t been a great year though for growing veg – very hit and miss – but next year I predict will be a glorious one with lots of sunshiny days.
I have to say that this year seems to have flown in. Here we are now heading into Autumn so quickly. The days are getting shorter, the weather so much colder than expected but on the bright side, it’s a time for wrapping up warm, going for nice walks and eating lovely, lovely comfort food. So now that my mojo is returning, I’ll be posting some recipes for soups and stews later this week. I do hope you’ll come back and join me for those.
As for the picture, well I had to post something!!! This is from a fundraiser I held earlier this month for our local hospice. An afternoon tea with lovely company in aid of a good cause.
