Festive Cheer!

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support and comments over the last few months. I really appreciate the encouragement and it has spurred me on to step up my writing as we enter 2012.

Today is Boxing day. For me it’s a day to chill out and relax. A time to fall asleep on the sofa and do nothing.

Our cat Munch

Another delight for Boxing Day is some bubble and squeak.ย Now I have to admit that my version of this is not a traditional recipe.

If you’re not familiar with bubble & squeak, it is basically left-over Christmas lunch (or any Sunday roast) … fried.

Sounds great doesn’t it!!

Google the recipe and you’ll often see mashed veg fried into a solid block. I just like to throw the left-overs into a wok and fry. When I say left-overs I deliberately cook an extra serving of Christmas lunch so that I could have bubble & squeak. Bits of sprout, carrot, parsnips along with some yorkshire pudding and roast potatoes.

Bubble & Squeak

The wok-full with some cold chicken always hits the spot.

I hope you have a peaceful holiday and a fabulous start to 2012.

Thanks for reading and happy writing!

  3. I too, love your cat. We owned his twin, ‘Percy Popovich”.
    I have heard of bubble & squeak, just not in that context. Looks good!

    Bubble & squeak! Now we know who to go to for translations.

  6. Now that’s what I call a fryingpanful! I’ve never put quite so much into my bubble and squeak before but I might just try it. Love the kitten.

      I’ll let him know about his growing fan club. I must admit that since eating than pan full I’ve had no end of trouble with my gallbladder. That’ll teach me!
