This healthy meal is a result of us wanting to cut back on calories and fat. I won’t make it again. It was….just ok. And I am being generous. I love turkey. I like fennel…and red onion and potato too. I love sausage. But I do not like turkey sausage. In my opinion it’s too dry, too bland and not tasty at all. This meal looks great and we endured it for one evening (this in spite of me making enough for two nights easily). The rest was used for a jambalaya type stew.
I made this instead of going with the Cumberland sausages mentioned in the last Inspector Banks books I read. The inspiration was the pub meal with sausage – but I decided to try a healthy twist on it all. That’ll teach me. Maybe.
My review of Peter Robinson’s book Hanging Garden may be found at Novel Meals.
As far as book talk, I just finished Maeve Binchy’s last book (A Week in Winter) and Rachel Joyce’s novel The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry. Reviews are in the works for those.
Movies have been so-so lately. I don’t know if you remember but we don’t have television feed – just own a TV set which plays DVDs. We tried Meserine (not recommended), U.S. Marshalls (I like just about anything with Tommy Lee Jones, Homeland (a television show which we could only take one episode before sending the disk back with 3 episodes unwatched) Some of my co workers raved about it but we just couldn’t get into it. I usually like Claire Danes but she was rather wooden in this, in my opinion.
Loved season 5 of Mad Men and of course we can’t wait for Breaking Bad to be available from Netflicks.
That’s the roundup here at Squirrel Head Manor. Hoping to visit our son soon and maybe I will have some good photos to share.
Hope you all are well!
