Guy Fawkes Night

Remember remember the 5th of November,
Gunpowder, Treason, Plot!

I vaguely managed to quench my Autumnal thirst the other. Sarah, Lynsey and Barns came over for a feast of cheese and chutney, Mexican bean hotpot and blueberry tart washed down with a bottle of red wine and crusty baguettes. We then apple bobbed in a bucket before cycling down to the river with sparklers and barely working lighters. It was glorious! Check out all Sarah's handiwork with a slow shutter-speed and lots of screaming. Those are our initials bitches!

Mama Mac's Mexican Bean Hotpot

Serves 4

2 x potatoes peeled and chopped
1 x red pepper chopped
3 x carrots peeled and chopped
1 x leak chopped
Handful of green beans chopped
1 x tin of baked beans
1 x tin chopped tomatoes
½ x tin chic peas
1 x lg onion chopped
2 x cloves of garlic, crushed
½ tsp chilli powder
2 x level tsps. Paprika
Dash of mixed herbs
2 x tsps. Marmite
1 x bayleaf
Salt and Pepper to taste

Boil the carrots and potatoes in a large pot on the hob in just enough unsalted water to cover them.

When they are almost cooked add all the other ingredients except for the marmite and simmer.

Just before serving add 2 tsps of marmite and a little salt and pepper (not too much as the marmite is salty) and stir.

Serve hot with crusty bread, rice or lentils

(All veg can be swapped for something else depending on your tastes as can the beans. Red Kidney beans are always a winner)
