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.

March Winds

Tomorrow is March

Month of winds

Whirling round

Sharp and clean..

March comes in

Like a lion

Fights with the world

Shreds trees.

Like a dragon

Breathing cold fire

Bringing rain

And late snow ….

Or

March comes in like a lamb

First day of meteorological spring…

Gentle breezes

Kiss the blossom

Arriving early

In warm breath.

Then the old saying goes

In like a lion, out like a lamb

Or

In like a lamb out like a lion…

Whatever way..

March Roars !
