Everyone is full of beans here this evening. Spikey is beside himself with excitement because for the first time ever his new best doggy friend Scruffy has come for a sleep over. They are both full of energy and having great fun playing together and I hope that they will soon tire each other out. Scruffy is quite taken by Spikey’s pink fluffy squeaky toy which Spikey won at Sticker Dog Show last year for having the waggiest tail.
It’s been quite chilly here over the last few days and the song Chilly Winds which my friend’s band plays keeps coming into my head ( you can hear them play the song at this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=887u0luJ838 ). It is just as well that I have a new favourite recipe for cold winter days – cannellini bean stew. I got the recipe from the Deliciously Ella page http://deliciouslyella.com/recipe/cannellini-bean-stew/. It is also really tasty with different beans and it worked really well when I made it with black eyed beans. I always serve it with fresh veggies which of course includes broccoli and either my homemade scones or maize pasta.
