well what a beautiful autumn day it has been here today. I love the changing of the seasons. I love them so much that I passed up an opportunity to move abroad because when it came to it, I just couldnt imagine life without the bright autumn days and the frosty winter mornings. The day started in such an uplifting way when I headed out to the forest for my daily ramble with Moo. I was greeted by the honking of geese and when I gazed up above there were simply dozens of geese heading north. All honking to each other to keep up the motivation. Some dropping out of formation to bring up the stragglers. It got me to thinking about some of the lovely people that I have been conversing with in diaryland at MSE and how they are much like the geese, when I am straggling behind they drop back to pull me up. So nice to have people who I have never met taking time out to help and advise about things that I am trying to learn about.
Life in the country just gets better every day.
Now I thought that tonight I would share my recipe for Tibetan Roast. As a vegetarian I am always looking for new recipes. This is one that I found in a book that I bought from Amazon The Vegetarian Kitchen by Sarah Brown and is now one of my most favourite special meals.
