Oh my, it really has been a long while!
I really do appreciate your continuous loyalty and visits and I feel I need to explain the reason for my absence.
In the current financial climate, it's hard enough to sustain a living but, in our case, a mixture of health problems and changes in circumstances have seriously affected our income.
How does that relate to the blog, you may ask. You see a Food Blog is meant to be an adventure where the blogger talks about their experiences in cooking and trying new ingredients so that other people may share in that same experience and be able to experiment themselves.
So what happens when the blogger's life changes and they can longer live that adventure but instead are left to try and survive and provide their families with the best nourishing meals on a budget?
It doesn't sound so interesting anymore, does it?
So I struggled on a daily basis to cook dishes for my family that would be both nutritional and nourishing, I found myself thinking that there was no point in blogging those recipes.
In this day and age where Masterchef rules and even Jamie Oliver encourages people to buy expensive ingredients to cook a 15 minute meal, I didn't feel there was a place for me in the Food Blogging world anymore.
I fact, I even messaged Mr. Oliver on Facebook to ask him why he couldn't make a programme about under £15 budget meals. Needless to say I never got a reply.
Anyway, I returned to the blog today and was surprised to see how many of you out there still keep an interest in my posts. So I decided to take a chance and post the recipe for this very humble but very nourishing and healthy Traditional British Pie that actually costs just a mere£1.50 a head (feeds 4-6)
I hope you try it. It is really delicious and comforting and I do hope to see you back here again!
