Kitchen In Kernow

You may think that all Sime does is sit around playing guitars...
He does do a lot of that, but he also makes a mean...

Pot of nettle tea...

And the most delicious porridge in the world ♥
With pears, bananas, goji berries, linseeds, sesame seeds, molasses & cinnamon.

He also makes incredible scrambled tofu with onions, garlic, beansprouts, chopped greens & miso. 
Nice with rice or on toast!

He makes fantastic pasta sauces too - this one is just a quick one made with a tin of tomatoes, but he starts all the veg off in water & he knows better than me how long to cook it all for... He used smoked paprika, basil & oregano along with the veg & a little black pepper. Fresh herbs really make the dish! 

This is a dish we made together - a vegetable bake. 
The base is made from millet & quinoa, cooked together & then some soy sauce & chopped raw garlic added at the end. It's a great way of using up any leftover steamed or roasted veg - just add to a base of onions, garlic & mushrooms (cook in water with some cumin, turmeric & coriander), we mixed it together with some kidney beans too & finished off adding a large dollop of miso & juice of half a lemon.
Pile it on top of the millet & quinoa & cover in breacrumbs, season & we sprinkle some nutritional yeast on too. 

Sime was craving mushy peas too, so I made them with split peas, mint, a little seaweed & another dollop of miso. Sime is the mash champ - he adds our homemade oat & almond milk with a spoonful of wholegrain mustard & black pepper.

And now he's whipping up another delight in the kitchen....

Before we head off to see The Hunger Games at the local flea pit!

Bye for now.

Purposefully Living

How long have we dreamed of buying a place in France?  Of living in the mountains? Probably ever since we got together over 30 years ago... So here we are, we are finally doing it!  We have paid our deposit, met with the notaire and will be receiving the keys to this cute little house in January!  Next year will bring about a lot of change for us and we are very excited, we have been focusing on our lives in a positive and intentional way, meditating each morning and visualising the things we desire. The incredible thing is - it works, it really does.
We have proved over and over again that it is possible for us to do this - being in a good place and having the ability to really focus always makes things happen. We consider everything we have achieved so far, things which seemed so out of reach, but we wanted them and somehow they came into our lives...  From cars, holidays, our business, the B&B to houses. It has meant taking quite a leap of faith at times, even when the likihoo…

Year Of Adventure

A bit late, but Happy New Year! :-)
We had a lovely time with all our kidlets over Christmas, which has made quite a change - the first time in years that we have all managed to be under one roof during the holiday period! 
We are so pleased that we could do this, as this was to be our last one at Meadowcroft...  Yes, not only are we buying our little French house (which will need lots of TLC before we move in), but we have decided to downsize to a small house overlooking the sea while we visit France and just enjoy ourselves!

We only made the decision at the beginning of December, which meant we needed to get busy decluttering...
Taking the opportunity to move from our big place in Boswinger to a small, very lovely, fully furnished one bedroom converted garage near to Mevagissey...

This was the view from our bedroom early this morning.

We were supposed to be managing the property as a holiday let for our friends, but after having a few days break here - we fell in love with it!!!
So…

Settling In

We are loving our new little place and are feeling very much at home...
We gave away our juicer to a lovely friend, as our new kitchen is quite small. We do have a Nutribullet too, which is easier to clean and we start each day with a smoothie. These are pineapple, banana, kale, goji berry, pumpkin seeds, turmeric and spirulina.
We add a mix of water and home made milk to the ingredients. Delicious!

We have been reunited with our milk maker (which was buried in the jam room at Meadowcroft).  It's great making all sorts of milks again...  And the pulp goes into our porridge!
This one is brown rice and almond.
Porridge!!! Oats with hemp protein powder, chia seeds, ground flax seeds, rose hips, banana, apple, blueberries and water. Topped with milk, cinnamon, ginger and real Canadian maple syrup... Courtesy of our beautiful friend, Richard - who brings it over from Canada every year!!! ♥

An organic veggie feast - we are still getting our weekly veg boxes... Peppers stuffed with Puy …
