In January I was so happy to see fluffy white snow sparkling in the sunshine that I ran outside to take some photos. But by this time …. the thrill is gone, gone, gone. I’m craving warm sunshine like a drunk craves his ‘bottle in a bag’. And I have absolutely no voom. Luckily I’ll be heading down south in just a few weeks!
Due my No Voom syndrome I haven’t posted a recipe for awhile. However, yesterday, for the second time, I prepared and photographed Toad in the Hole, along with a creamy onion sauce I ‘invented’. And, for the second time, I didn’t like the results enough to post the recipe. (Looks yummy, doesn’t it?)
Here’s the big problem – I can’t find a ‘proper sausage’, as the Brits would say. For this attempt I used chicken sausage with apples but the taste was too strong and the sausages are too big. I did find real, honest-to-goodness English ‘bangers’ online but the minimum order is far too large.
As Snidely Whiplash used to say, “Curses – foiled again”. Luckily, I have a good friend who’s from Yorkshire, England. She’s found a store across the border in Connecticut which sells real British ‘bangers’ – so, I’ll find out exactly where she gets them and post the recipe very soon!! In the meantime, I may consider buying a sunlamp to help me get my voom back!!
