January Food

January is a month when the comfort of warming food is an important part of family life and it is a pleasure to be inside the kitchen looking out (click on the links to see previous posts on these subjects).

Butternut squash became a regular feature in my shopping basket this month.IMG_5940so that I could make tasty, filling soup.

I also bought red cabbage again. It’s perfect with winter meals like casserole and toad in the hole.IMG_6112There have been a lot of one pot meals. This one uses swede (turnip if you are from the North-East), a vegetable that is always cheap and cheerful and surprisingly sweet and fragrant when cooked Moroccan style with cumin, coriander and chick peas.
