A visitation

Well, last week went with a flash! Nanna and Grandpa Seaside came down for a week's visit and we enjoyed a magical mystery tour of Norhtamptonshire. Despite the rain we managed to fit in an outing of some sort or other everyday.
Above are some photos of the higglety pigglety vegetable garden at Kelmash Hall where I'd never been before, despite it being five minutes around the corner!
And this weeks recipe!

Poulin with Chesnuts and Chorizo

Take two poussins and brown in butter.
Pop in a casserole dish with lentils vert, chopped parsnip, shallots or baby onions, cooked peeled chestnuts, a few slices if chorizo. Season with cayenne pepper, salt and pepper.
Make a chicken stock and mix in dijon mustard and cyder vinegar and pour over the ingredients so just the tops of the poussins are sticking out.

Cook in the oven for 1-1/2 hours. Mix two teaspoons of flour with butter and some juice from the casserole and add to the pot.
Pop back in the oven for another 30 mins and serve with roasties :0)
