Day 21, 22

Three weeks in, not starving yet.
The second column was in the Stroud News and Journal yesterday.
Had a great evening watching (through binoculars) my son at the Young Voices concert in the NEC.
Have felt the reality of having one car this week.  Although lovely today to walk to Horsley then Nailsworth then home then back to Horsley.  Got lots of lovely produce from Nailsworth today, meat from Country quality, fruit and veg from Bramley's and just milk from Hobbs.  The children are back in the daily habit of making a daily loaf after school.  How lush is that.  Minor crisis today, the rations have run out, no more butter, had to buy an emergency pack which makes me suspect we have actually consumed 6 packs in 6 days. oops, no wonder we are not starving yet. And we haven't even got any cake left.
Now I should be cooking dinner for friends tonight, a Skye Gyngell feast, Sweet Potato and Ginger soup,  Butterflied leg of lamb with harissa and purple sprouting followed by Walnut Tart.  Fantastic walnuts from Bramleys that me and the girls were allowed to feast on before we bought.  Let's get cooking.

    Enjoying the blog, passing it to my wife to follow as well. I think we should try the same though I think a challenge in Evesham!
    Could you post receipe for Sweet Potato and Ginger soup?
    Like the stationery shop PULP.Nicola and Lucy need local support.
    Enjoy the festival this evening.
