First dinner of the New Year

Today I wanted to use up some vegetables that were lurking in the box leftover from Christmas, one of them was celeriac. After the excesses we’d enjoyed I fancied something meat free; so on the BBC food website I searched and came up with this Mediterranean Stew
I’d not got courgettes so I used a red pepper instead! Also I threw a can of chick peas in to add some more protein.
I’d not made potato cakes before and they were a huge success! I didn’t fry them but cooked them on the top of the Aga.
It served 4 of us with leftovers for lunch tomorrow – but I did double the potato cake ingredients!




About weheartcards Esther Warner started designing cards several years ago, then in 2003 she returned to University as a mature student, completing an IT degree. Since then she has developed her passion for paper and creativity by computerised card-making. In the corporate world she was awarded ‘Worcestershire Businesswoman of the Year’ in 2005 Esther says, “When was little I loved getting post. The excitement of getting a letter or something delivered to my door when it WASN’T my birthday or Christmas was really exciting. Wondering who had sent it and what it could be…. The anticipation of opening the envelope to discover what was inside was thrilling! ” In later years Esther was very homesick at boarding school and the daily post distribution became the most exciting part of the day. Each card from we♥cards is filled with love and made for the recipient personally, Esther hopes that they convey the excitement she felt when she was small and received a letter from her Grandma!
