The weather has been lovely (for the time of year) over the last few days and I was really looking forward to having my visitors over from Glasgow today. With the insouciance of fate, when we got up this morning it was struggling to snow at loch level, and looking at the cameras on the Rest and be Thankful, it was not promising for people getting through, particularly as my brother’s car is not the most suitable for winter weather in the Highlands. So we had to cancel and now I have a huge chowder and a chicken tagine which I will need to freeze.
The chowder is my take on the Jamie Oliver recipe, with the difference that I do not like the smoked bacon in it, and I also cook the potatoes separately as I really hate them being under cooked.
