Autumn fare

How's this for the archetypical English meal, perfect for a wet, gloomy Sunday evening in October on the day the clocks went back (coincidentally, Halloween):

Game casserole (a mix of pheasant, partridge and venison), including onions, mushrooms, carrots, thyme and bayleaf, cooked in a low oven for about three and a half hours
Celeriac mash (60% potato, 40% Celeriac)
Brussels sprouts
Parsnips (home-grown)

Add 1 bottle of Good Ordinary Claret (courtesy of Waitrose)

Add 1 box of Terry's "Orange Chocolate Sensations" (Afterwards, of course)

Sounds OK?

By the way, no Trick or Treaters made it to our house today -- was it because the wet weather 'dampened their spirits' or what? So, I suppose we have to eat all those fun-size chocolate bars ourselves then...

And just because I don't have any appropriate photos of the above, here's a picture of Fiona's cat Voltaire!

Voltaire obviously has sophisticated tastes when it comes to reading material...

  1. Why do people lurk and not follow? Anyway you now have new follower from Australia. Thanks for visiting my blog. I also like the young broad beans in a stir fry. Did you know, that there is a chemical in their pods that interacts with some types of anti-depressants and can cause death? I didn't feel in a murderous mood when I cooked the meal. :-)
