The last couple of days have been rather dreary, with very little sunshine and lots of rain. It has not been that cold though, but a warm lazy fire seems to cheer everything up around it.
Many years ago (sometimes I feel old!), I spent a few years living in a house with no electric cooking facilities. We had a coal range to use (it also heated all our hot water). The warmth that old range put out had a special quality about it, seeping into the bones like nothing else did.
I used to be amazed at any visitors we received as they used to gravitate towards the range and stand with their backs to it.

I used my spiralizer again tonight and cooked up a mushroom stir-fry with ribbon carrots and courgettes, plus cabbage, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, celery and noodles – all made tasty with some soy sauce and sesame oil. Grand-daughter even went back for seconds!
It has been a holiday in New Zealand today (Queens Birthday weekend) but the day has gone by the same for us as every other day does.
Wishing everyone a very happy and productive week ahead 😊
