Lobby

Lobby:

A stew made of leftovers and vegetables. This is the name given to it by people in Stoke-on-Trent. Basically ‘lobbing’ things in. In Liverpool it might be called ‘Lob scouse’.

This has some celery, carrot, potato, mushroom, cauliflower in it. I had a small amount of duck and a bit of lamb left over so I’ve added that. A little heat from some grated ginger. A bit of garlic, a small amount of chilli flakes and a bit of salt. My aim is to make a warming stew to warm us up on this winter day. It’s simmering on the hob at the moment. I hope it will taste OK.

This is what greeted us when we arrived at the Thai restaurant tonight. I’d decided to have a meal out after getting wet and chilly this afternoon.

The cats were a friendly gesture because we visit frequently and the owner knows I have cats.

Now I’m home and I’m going to put my feet up. There is nothing wrong with having a rest occasionaly.

Time for coffee I think.
