Two new recipes

Story location: Home / Blog / food_and_drink /

We tried a couple of new recipes at the weekend. On friday we did rustic roast cod. It was ok but took much longer to cook than the recipe suggested, possibly because our roasting tray completely fills our tiny oven and the heat doesn't get around it properly. Last nights recipe was completely new: Baked chicory with chicken. It's not very often that we try a new ingredient and neither of us had cooked with chicory before. We didn't have any dijon mustard but we had wasabi paste (which is similar...) and some yellow mustard seeds, so they went in instead. We think it worked well, we could probably make the recipe again using different veg depending on what we had in the house.

Pygmy Dormouse

Story location: Home / Blog / animals /

Yesterday we drove down to Abingdon to collect our latest small furry animal - an african pygmy dormouse we have named George Henry Big-Ears-Fluffy-Tail. Since they live for 5-6 years, Emma decided she wanted to give him a 'human' name. The 'Big-Ears-Fluffy-Tail' bit was just a joke name until we could think of a proper name for him.
