Strawberry Baguette Bag

Strawberry Bag
Originally uploaded by chiggster

I've been using my sewing machine! Fay has been teaching me - and is a much better teacher than that dragon in my textiles class at high school! We made this strawberry bag together. She did one of my straps for me, and helped me to measure out the whole thing too as well as teaching me how to set up the machine and use it in general.

It's not perfect, and I think I need to get much better at attaching straps. I think I need to work on wider ones for a while before I will be competent at thin ones like these. But it's not half bad!

I'm calling it a baguette bag for 2 reasons, 1) it's rather long.... and 2) I'm not confident that the straps will be able to hold the weight of anything heavier than a couple of bread sticks :oD

Recipe: Pigsty Pie

This is one that we made up, although we are far from the first or only people to make a pie using pork or pork mince and call it a Pigsty Pie. So let's just say that this is our version of it. It smells great and reminds me of stuffing at Christmas, making it feel much more "naughty" than it is! This serves four people and it a nice 9 points per serving. You will need these for the mash: 400g potatoes 400g sweet potatoes 4-5 good sized carrots Salt Pepper Nutmeg Simply chop the roots, boil in salted water until tender, and mash! Add salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste. The pie filling: 10 sprays low fat cooking spray (e.g. 1 cal) 1/2 lb lean pork mince 2 onions, finely chopped 3 apples, diced 1 leek, chopped 5-6 big mushrooms 2 tbs plain flour 1 tsp sage 1 tsp parsley Salt Pepper 1 vegetable stock cube 1/2 hot water 2 tsp English mustard Fry the onions in the cooking spray until they start to soften, add the mince. Once the meat starts to colour add the apple, leek and mush
