Cumbrian Properties let down a lot of stranded and homeless people this week, when they hiked their admin fee from the standard £110 (plus a mysterious £90 check-in fee which I’ve never heard of before) to a whopping £600.
Note: This post is somewhat off topic, but it needs to be written and what’s written wants to be read, so I’m posting it here, and apologies to anyone who hoped for a post about food.
Some days it feels like you took your eye off the ball, and I think today was one of those. I’ve been swamped in writing work, including a regular project that needs educational diagrams in addition to the writing. Today my head was mashed.
Veggies take on new personalities when baked. It’s different from when you roast them; baked vegetables taste more strongly of themselves, without the smidge of smoky bitterness that comes with roasting.
When it’s cold and blustery out there, and all you’ve got is a rain-drenched dog walk to look forward to, sometimes you need something ordinary, easy, warming, and tasty to eat. I like to think of Boston Baked Beans as comfort food, but the fact is, it’s nothing more than homemade baked beans.
