Nice work if you can get it

The veg box has been used to good effect this week. Our friend Stuart came round on Wednesday for dinner. So Andrew cooked a pan fried sausage dish which has a mustard and apple sauce. I roasted beetroot, parsnips, carrots and potatoes in goose fat (which was acquired from Christmas dinner).

Andrew went off to Nice for a work thing on Thursday, I am sure that he will blog about this at some point. So left alone with the veg box, I decided to take advantage. So I made bubble and squeak with the first decent poached egg I've manage to do:

As you can see I could wait to eat and then remembered that it might be a good to take a picture, mainly to make Andrew jealous!

I spent the weekend in the lab. I would love to finish the majority of my lab work by the end of April as this would give me 5 months to write the thesis. Hence the lack of fun at the weekend. When I got back home on Sunday I made a soup for lunch this week. I got the recipe from veg box recipes, I decided to make the winter minestrone soup.

I thought that I should celebrate Andrew's return to Scotland, so I prepared the traditional meal of haggis, neeps (swede) and tatties. The haggis was vegetarian and very good too.
