When there isn't a pub for miles

Note: sorry for the late post. I accidentally scheduled in 6:30 p.m. instead of a.m. --Dan

One of the disadvantages of our new location is that there isn't an honest pub anywhere near us. That's fine with me, since it leaves less to temptation (and saves us money). It's less appealing to quickly grab some fish and chips if you need to jump in the car and drive to get there.

When I saw sausages on sale at the grocery store, I knew it was time to make some bangers and mash. There are a million ways to prepare it, but I chose a recipe with an onion gravy and savoury mashed potatoes (I had read about adding nutmeg and it worked).

We also added some baked beans which is a quick-win for me. All I did was open a can of beans in tomato sauce, add a couple teaspoons of molasses and heated the works up in the microwave.

  1. I came over to answer your question about frying eggplant before putting it, in the casserole. I think, it helps avoid mushy eggplant.

  2. Ah. I get it now! I imagine grilling would do one better as long as I don't have paper-thin slices. Now I have a stragety for a future recipe.

  3. No pub for miles? A blessing and a curse. It sounds like you had a nice dinner though. Keep cooking.
