Chillies growing

Day 168 - photo a day 2017

Sat 17 June 2017

Today I went for a ride in the Dyfi, I wanted to ride all of the descents that I know of on the Corris side. I started off with footpath and my balance was pretty screwy, it kind of set the tone for the rest of the ride. I didn't …

Thai red curry

Day 167 - photo a day 2017

Fri 16 June 2017

I went for a ride this evening, up to nant. I decided to play a new game of pedalling as much as I want at the start of a trail but as soon as I stop pedalling that's it, no more pedalling allowed. Got to keep things interesting somehow... My …

Chocolate mousse cake

Day 161 - photo a day 2017

Sat 10 June 2017

Today we chilled out with Elysia's parents and we to Patisserie valerie for coffee and cake in the afternoon. I broke my diet and had a piece of chocolate mousse cake, it was far too rich for me these days but I still managed to eat it all... I'm still …

Tomatoes and peppers ready for roasting

Day 156 - photo a day 2017

Mon 05 June 2017

Another unexciting day but I made roasted tomato and red pepper soup. Another recipe from deliciously ella, it was really nice and I had some bread leftover from a loaf I made a couple of days ago with it. I thought that this looked quite nice so...

Capped bottles of homebrew

Day 155 - photo a day 2017

Sun 04 June 2017

This is the other bit of homebrew that takes a while, bottling. I've bottled half of the beer tonight and put some finings in the other half to bottle in a couple of days - want to see if it makes much difference to the finished process. I tried a thimbleful …

Bottles draining after sterilisation

Day 154 - photo a day 2017

Sat 03 June 2017

This is one of the worse bits of brewing beer IMO, preparing bottles for use. Having to put sterilisation powder into every bottle and then fill with hot water, leave, rinse out with cold water and then drain. Easy but just takes a little while.

Energy balls

Day 150 - photo a day 2017

Tue 30 May 2017

Day 150! No exciting photo, in fact I strongly considered a post saying that I was stopping. I tried to convince Elysia to let me take a photo of her but she refused. I did make some Deliciously Ella energy balls though so they're gonna have to do. They're really …

Homebrew after a week

Day 148 - photo a day 2017

Sun 28 May 2017

Didn't do much today either. A bit of work but mostly a bit of moping around. So, here's what my homebrew is looking like after a week. I'm slightly concerned about the oily looking sheen and lack of foam but google assures me that this isn't anything to worry about …

Home brew

Sat 20 May 2017

Today I picked my ebike up, at last! It's taken a while and cost a bit but I'm happy to have it back. I had a fun ride and it was great. I want to brew some beer for a get together in August and today the kit came. So …

Medina salmon

Day 136 - photo a day 2017

Tue 16 May 2017

This evening Elysia and I went to Medina, I had salmon. She had galette and we had hummus to share. The salmon was great and the garnish that came with it was really nice too. The segments of orange worked well with the honey glaze on the fish. Not got …

Chilli, garlic and tomato mussels

Sat 13 May 2017

I did a rideout on the mega today, possibly the last I'm going to do on it. The ride started out well, I felt good. By midway up the leg burner my legs were starting to go into limp mode a bit and were starting to hurt. By the visitor …

Breakfast at Poppy's cafe

Day 121 - photo a day 2017

Mon 01 May 2017

I mostly just chilled out today but we went to Poppy's cafe (at Newman's garden centre) for breakfast for a fry up. Naturally, I went for the veggie option and was pleasantly surprised. The sausages weren't quorn but actually seemed to be made from plant matter. Anyway here's a photo …

Fish tagine at Casablanca

Day 115 - photo a day 2017

Tue 25 April 2017

Elysia is away for the next 2 days and we haven't been out for food in a while so tonight we went to Casablanca, a favourite of ours. As usual the service was great, really attentive. The food was also really nice, I went for something different to usual and …

Moroccan spiced rice, vegetable and nut bake

Day 113 - photo a day 2017

Sun 23 April 2017

I went for a ride on the Mega today to make that it's working OK ahead of the Dyfi Enduro next weekend. I did ~40km and all seems good, a few odd noises to work out but that's nothing new. After my ride I took Elysia out to the cafe …

Valencia saison spanish beer

Day 101 - photo a day 2017

Tue 11 April 2017

Another unexciting day. Worked until 18:15, cooked and then gambuildr. For lunch Liam n I went to ultra comida again. They had bottles of a Spanish beer that looked interesting and they were only £1.40 each so I bought one. It was OK, nothing very remarkable about it …
