Steamed Veggies (and other hot air)


My culinary adventure continued today, as well as purchasing my pie tins (a day early!), I also bought myself a steamer! I’ve been meaning to buy a steamer for quite some time now, the thought of less washing up plus more enjoyable veggies was one that I finally succumbed to today. The steamer I bought is the sort that sits on the hob, it has two steaming compartments and after successfully passing it’s first trial (and mine, I’d never used one before), I think it will get more than it’s fair share of use as time passes.

For a little more I could have purchased an electronic steamer but you may have gathered by now, I’m not keen on kitchen accessories or electronic gadgets cluttering up my worktops, yet I have plenty of space on them. I like the idea that if for some reason I lose power due to a power failure or my cooker dies, I can still prepare a meal on my camping gas stove in an emergency. My new steamer goes a long way to doing just that if ever I needed it to.

We did have pie tonight as well but not one of my making. My local supermarket sells lots of locally produced food and one area they excel is in the bakery and preprepared pies etc. They sell one pie that both my daughter and I love, yet it is a simple sausage patty encased in suet pastry…………..YUM! So we enjoyed one of our favourite meals with less than half the normal washing up and probably used less electricity in the process.

Reading: I’ve not done much of this recently and my poor old Bookshelf page is looking rather neglected. I have updated the page to include a book I picked up over Christmas but I’ve only read the first couple of chapters, I hope to read more over the coming weeks and to start my reading reviews once again.

Films: I am now the happy recipient of Sky Movies on demand! This has seen me watching simply loads of films but until now I’ve not been writing my thoughts on them. As with my reading, I hope to start my movie reviews once again. One of the best films I watched over the Christmas period was the latest Sherlock Holmes. A thoroughly enjoyable romp though I think it may have been better had an English actor played Sherlock though Robert Downey Jr gave it his best shot and didn’t really spoil it for me that much.
