Broad Beans and Reading Under the Covers

Thank you to all the people who gave me broad bean suggestions. Unfortunately thanks to my overzealous spam filter and my just reading the comments when Blogger e-mailed them to me rather than logging in to Blogger I missed some. However, fortunately that helped me work out why I've not been receiving all my comments by e-mail so hopefully it's fixed now. In the end I went with Toni's suggestion of cooking them with the meat so I popped them in the slow cooker with the lamb. They turned out very tasty so I would recommend that method although they didn't look the greatest visually.

I don't know about other people but when I was a child I often used to read books under the covers by torchlight after I had gone to bed. I really love reading and can find it very hard to put a book down. (I am better at stopping these days.) Anyway, when I was at my cousin's wedding, one of my uncles (well technically my mum's cousin but we just call them all "Auntie" or "Uncle") was telling us stories about his mum (my Great Auntie) and her sister and brother (my Grandad) growing up. They grew up on a farm and lived in a wattle and daub house with an earth floor and a thatched roof. They had gas lamps downstairs and candles upstairs. Apparently my Great Auntie used to read under the covers at night too - with a candle in a thatched cottage! No wonder she likes modern conveniences.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. It's fun to learn that you have something in common with a relative, isn't it? I saw the maids of virtue button on your side bar and wanted one for my blog. But my computer is messing up and I can't edit my template. Oh well I will have to try later.
Nice Blog.
