Anyway, last night I went to see My Bloody Valentine 3D - 3D Jensen - oh yeah!! Anyway it was awesome but driving home it had started to snow and I nearly crashed just trying to turn into my road. Then got up this morning and this is what awaited me when I looked out the window.
In true UK style, the roads came to a standstill and that only means one thing - SNOW DAY! HURRAAAAHHH. Day off to watch Firefly and make a snowman (plus a little light unpacking!!). Here is mine, mum's & dad's effort - meet Wilfred, with me in my sexy wellies!
To warm us up I made cookies (I probably don't need to tell you what recipe I used). Sorry for the shite food pix, my camera is still in the depths of one of my boxes and I only have my camera phone until I find it.
1 large white onion, diced
Saute the onion in the olive oil (and a pinch of salt) for about 5 minutes, add the carrot and cook a couple more minutes. Add the garlic and cook another minute. Drain the peas and throw them in the pot with the stock, herbs and a pinch of pepper. I used stock with salt in so I didn't add extra, if yours are low sodium, add salt to taste now.
Bring to the boil and then turn down to a low simmer, cover and cook for 45 minutes and then it's done. We ate it reheated about an hour later and it was rad.
Fingers crossed it snows again tomorrow so I can have another day off!! :)
