Rush, Rush, Rush

Flippin Henry, I'm writing like bedamned. But now I'm off to the 8yo's 1st EVER Hockey match - AWAY. Away is correct, - 25 miles away. I reeeeely want to see her play, apparently she's a bit of a natural. Cool. The weather is foul but that's power for the course in November.

Note to NaNo people - so wish you'd chosen a month with 31 days!!

Tomorrow I'd forgotten I was hosting a coffee morning - It will be good fun though: Got the cakes, got the firewood, got the coffee. Just have to write through the night according to the stats below!!

Slow cooker's on, Beef stew with ginger and chilli. Just what we'll need after standing in a damp field. Later tonight I think I'll save time and serve it with warm naan bread and mango chutney. Weirdo me!

  1. Hope your daughter won! I would love the beef recipe- anything with ginger and chili suits my lot.

  2. She was amazing, took off down the pitch three times with the ball attached to the sticky thing - scoring twice! They won 3:1. Brilliant.

    Very easy recipe: Saute onion, garlic, carrot and whole button mushrooms in pan with oil. Then add v.lazy chillis and finely chopped fresh ginger. Add seasoning (salt, pepper, chopped rosemary) Put everything into slow cooker on high. Deglaze pan with veg stock (or cube)and red wine and add to slow cooker also.

    Put cubed stewing beef in seasoned flour in a freezer bag then brown meat in a pan with heated cooking oil. Add meat to slow cooker.
    Cover with water and after an hour turn to low setting.
    Cook for 7 hours and serve with rice or warm naan bread and mango chutney.
