This Week's Recipe

Ooo-er madam!

Hello Readers!

Patients often ask me, "What does a top international class radiographer and guitar legend have for his dinner?"

To which I reply, "How the hell would I know?"

But in response to an earlier query from Gentleman Mike ("I Shall Blog Again"), here is a recipe I apparently promised some weeks ago. It seems that some posts on this blog are not being published by Blogger for reasons of national security. This was one of them, so let's hope for the best this time!


The perfect autumn meal! Serve with mashed potatoes and green veggies of your choice.

For a one-dish meal, add 2 large chopped potatoes to the recipe and serve with crusty bread.

Serves 4

That bloody dog...

400 g sausages (preferably with herbs), cut into 3 chunks
1 medium butternut squash, peeled and cut into large bit- sized chunks
2 onions, peeled and sliced into rings
2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage, or 1.5 teaspoons dried
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, or 1 teaspoon dried
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat your oven to 190°C/375°F/gas mark 5. In a large bowl, combine the sausages, squash, onions, herbs and olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper and mix well. Transfer the mixture to a large casserole dish or baking tray, so that everything is in one layer. Bake for between 40 and 60 minutes, stirring once, until the sausages are cooked and the edges of the vegetables have browned.

Stray Photon recommends a bottle of ale as a companion. It goes well with the meal, too.

and as a vegetarian alternative:

On a completely unrelated topic, several correspondents have not asked me if there are any Interweb sites where my earlier career as "Hairfix", a late 70's/early 80's punk rock/New Romantic hero in the Siberian village of Hull is documented.


Hope this helps

Asked what strategy they had for the forthcoming home match against Hull on Saturday, new manager Peter Grant, pointed at the restaurant, "We send up there for a courtesy lunch before the match," he said. "Delia always sorts it for us."
