Welcome to Rita and Kaye.
Been using up the left over Xmas bits this week.
Found an open bottle of red wine behind the coffee machine (why was it there?) so made a nice red wine sauce for some left over lamb! I used one of Jamie Oliver's recipes from his home cooking course (NVQ1). I always wanted the Adult Education organisation I worked for to run this so I could be nosy about the recipes!
Some left over sausages have made sausage rolls for lunches along with soup made with veg from the garden - parsnips, carrots and leeks along with potatoes from the last half bag saved from the summer crop. Though digging these roots up is proving muddy and cold - we have set up a washing station on a bench with buckets and scrubbing brushes in the garden.
There were some unused lemons too. These went in a lemon sponge cake.
Update on the fire fan - the room temperature seems to be a consistent 1 degree more for the usual level of wood used. If this makes sense.
