A diverse offering twixt the interesting, the unusual, and the amusing.

We are still keeping to our Veggie Wednesdays, and yesterday was no exception.
Aubergines, rather like Mushrooms, are a very good alternative to meat when making curries, and we eat a lot of both.
In this case I took a good splash of Rape Seed Oil, fried off some Cumin, Coriander, and Kashmiri Chilli powders, then added bite-sized lumps of Aubergine. I added some chopped baby Tomatoes, Lemon juice, seasoning, and a splosh (technical term) of Yoghurt to serve.
There are certain dishes where the lack of meat is unimportant, and this is one such. What I don't like are veggie dishes where you find yourself saying 'this would be far better with some meat in it'.
My Mushroom curry is even simpler. The halved mushrooms are fried with Tandoori and Garam Masala powders, a splash of Lemon juice, and given some seasoning. A simple dal with Basmati rice completes the dish.
Both the above photos are from previous postings. I'm becoming lazy.
The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone (except the obdurate and dictatorial) is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 46 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away; we also have a Border Collie called Billy. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
