See above. We had special visitors this weekend - our lovely son Ian and his equally lovely girlfriend Sarah. They came up to Sheffield from London to attend a wedding. Here they are in their glad-rags just before I ferried them to the town hall in Clint. The official part of the proceedings happened in the city's registry office.
Today, Sunday, meat was of course off the menu for Sunday dinner so I had the bright idea of making a vegan pie. It had to be big enough to serve six adults and a baby of sixteen months.
The pie contained sliced leeks, small florets of broccoli, fried onions, courgette slices, flat leaf parsley and a cheese sauce that I made from vegan milk, cornflour and grated mature vegan cheese. It turned out well and the vegan chef was duly impressed.
We ate it with roasted potatoes, Scottish baby potatoes, roasted carrots and leeks and garden peas with vegan gravy. It was well worth the effort.
Dessert was a "Bosh!" vegan carrot cake from Sainsburys along with sliced English strawberries.
Here is my massive pie, with its delicious vegan filling hidden from view. You will just have to imagine it. I didn't follow a recipe. Just used my noddle...
