New Year’s Day – 2019. Dinner : Not an especially special dinner, not for New Year’s Day. But special all the same – because it is entirely home-grown. (Well, everything except the salt, and olive oil for roasting the vegetables) Roast Hebridean hogget lamb from our croft ; Roast parsnips and potatoes, plus curly kale, from the walled garden. The hogget lamb is tender, very dark, and richly flavoured – wonderful!
Wholly home-grown meals are relatively common-place in this household, and most are mainly home-grown ; but it just struck us how fortunate we are to be able to feed ourselves like this!
Happy New Year, everyone : may you prosper and be happy!
