‘Meat of the Month’ September is Venison

Hunters Stew (serves 6) Ingredients 1 kilogram venison Flour 8-10 shallots, peeled and chopped 200 grams unsmoked back bacon 50 grams butter

2 bay leaves 1 teaspoon of mixed herbs 1/2 bottle of red wine 8-10 Chantenay carrots 6-8 new potatoes,

Method Ask your butcher to trim the meat for you or do it yourself removing all the bone or sinew and cut into 5cm cubes. Toss in flour and add a little salt and pepper. Sauté the shallots in the butter and a teaspoon of water in a large casserole dish until soft but not browned. Remove the onions and add the bacon, cubed, fry until golden; then remove. Using the fat in the dish brown the venison, then add the shallots and bacon to the casserole. Add bay leaves and mixed herbs, cover and put in a slow oven (150oC, Gas Mark 2) for 2 hours. Reduce the wine over high heat to half the original quantity, add to the stew with carrots and potatoes, and cook for a further hour.

Winter Container or Hanging Basket.

25

Whilst we hold out hope for an Indian summer you can’t help but notice the days getting that bit cooler and the nights closing in. So, why not do something to add a bit of cheer to your garden during those long winter months and try planting a winter hanging basket orcontainer ? Instead of the usual plants try planting a small conifer such as cupressus macrocarpa goldcrest in the centre of the display. Around this you can plant more hardy bedding plants such as Universal Pansy, Mini Cyclamen or Bedding Daisies. Then, try planting a variegated Ivy around the sides to hang down. If you are of a culinary ilk sage can also be used, as this is both attractive and useful. Top Tip Why not keep a few spare plants to one side in case any gaps form in your display. This way they can be easily filled. Be careful‌ in winter compost in small containers can freeze so either use a large container or consider using preventative methods, such as sacking around the container.

Book Review - The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

This book is based on the life of one girl, Liesel and begins in 1939, pre-war Nazi Germany. The unusual aspect of this book, is that it is narrated by Death. Now, I know what you are thinking and ordinarily, this would be morbid! However, in a strange sort of way, it is quite an uplifting book. The book starts with Liesel and her mother and brother on a train on the way to their new foster parents. It is the depths of winter and they all clearly haven’t eaten for several days, maybe longer. This is the !irst time that death meets Liesel but it won’t be the last. Her journey continues as she is left with her foster parents on Himmel Street and her mother disappears. She is left to start afresh with a new family and sets about making new friends. The drama of Liesel unfolds alongside the second World War and it highlights the impact that this had on everybody's life in war torn Germany. In order to !ind salvation in the chaos, caused by the lack of answers to questions she has, she begins to steal books. Death takes us through each and every book that she steals and the impact it has on her life. A beautifully told story that is original and captivating with characters of genuine intrigue and depth who show great strength in adversity time and time again.

DVD Review — The Blind Side (12) 6th September

27

The Blindside tells the true story of Michael Oher a homeless teenager from the projects of Memphis who through a chance and an acquaintance is transported into the very foreign world of a southern American Christian private school. While there he discovers an aptitude for American Football that offers him the chance of a different life. This impressive and uplifting !ilm is told through the excellent performances of Quinton Aaron as Michael and Sandra Bullock as Leigh Anne Touhy, who is touched by something in Michael and brings him into her families life. The strength of spirit shown by both characters allows them to overcome all the obstacles of class, education, and cultural differences to achieve great things, not least the forming of a bond that changes one family forever.

My partner and I are running the Bupa Great North Run this year, taking place on the 19th of this month. This year we have decided to try and raise some money for Macmillan because cancer has touched our lives as it has most peoples. All the fantastic work Macmillan do is based on donations and they really need our support. Therefore, if Macmillan is a charity that you would be interested in supporting, why not log onto our page and donate;

www.justgiving.com/Emily-Liam Both ourselves and Macmillan would really appreciate anything that you can give. Many Thanks Emily
