Winter is coming…

Ok, yes, it’s a ‘Game of Thrones’ reference. After sitting through the first season of gore, blood, betrayal and beheadings, I’ve opted out of seasons 2 & 3. Mr VS is disappointed, but gallantly soaking up the next episodes without me (then reporting in with full step-by-step plot updates, complete with actions).

While the blood was a bit much, I did relate to the tension and foreboding over the upcoming Winter. I mean really, who LIKES winter? No one in Sydney, where the houses aren’t heated properly and we all sit about shivering our bums off for a few months. But while the Seven Kingdoms prepare for an unknown winter that may last a lifetime, I’m feeling more optimistic about one that lasts about 10 weeks. Especially with a stash of recipes that warm my soul and tide me over until the jasmine vines all start to flower.

Here are some of my favourites (click the pics to link through to the recipes)…

    Wow, just found your site through my HFG subscription, love it! So much to read, so little time 😉 A question, my kids (3 and 6) have a select few vegies that they eat, carrots, mushrooms, cucumber to name 3/5. My problem is getting them to try new ones, to be honest I can’t even remember how I got them to try these and enjoy/tolerate them. I would really love to add some variety (+ other nutrients) to the daily repertoire, but neither of them are keen to step out of their comfort zones. Any suggestions? Off to keep reading old posts now! Thanks again.

    Seriously, you have to join Mr VS for season 3. It is the best one yet. And really you can’t watch episode 9 alone. Maybe it should be included in future wedding vows….

    Love your work!
