A little bit of every day....

roasted butternut squash & garlic

Half term is almost half way through now and we've been taaking it nice and slow .... we've done a little bit of cooking and a little bit of gardening. All indoors as its soooooooooooooo cold! * we were in Coventry yesterday and saw snow was forecast for Bath - kids very excited, mum excited too but slightly nervous about driving home - bitterly cold we set off for home, no sign of snow until 15 miles from home, beautiful cotswold cottages, dusted white rooftops, then other side of the hill nothing .
We've woken up with a thick frost and a phonecall from Coventry saying they have 2 inces of snow!!!!

I'm getting a bit disheartened with the whole veggy growing at the mo, I'm not sure if I'm going to have to chuck these or not, they seem a bit leggy to grow into anything?

And the weather has been too rotten to get out and sort the soil into the raised beds for pea planting this week. Other plans for the week include planting potatoes and onion sets.

My word snow already, I am so not ready for that! The roasted butternut squash and garlic looks so delicious, just perfect for a cold weather day.
