南瓜甘薯燉豬肉 Pork, Pumpkin and Sweet Potato Stew



在英國居住了這麼多年,我對他們的經典民間菜式仍總是百吃不厭。除了具有代表性的烤肉餐外,本地的砂鍋菜 (Casserole) 或燉肉餐 (Stew) 也是我最愛做和最受老公孩子們歡迎的家常菜之一。

After living in the UK for so many years, I've come to love their classic family dishes so much. Apart from the most popular Sunday roast dinner, casseroles and stews are among our family firm favourites too.

蘋果酥派 Apple Crumble


每年的九月和十月,在英國是蘋果的盛產季節。雖然老公替我在後園種下的兩株小蘋果樹今年還沒有甚麼收成,但本土的各處蘋果農塲,則享受著美好的大豐收。由於去年冬天的和暖,今年春季雨水的充分,這個夏天足夠的陽光,然後乾爽的九月,讓本地的蘋果可以比往年提前兩星期摘取。

British orchards are enjoying a bumper crop this season. The British apple harvest has begun two weeks early this year thanks to the last warm winter followed by plenty of sunshine this summer. 
Due to the unseasonably warm winter months followed by reasonable rainfall this spring, plenty of sunshine this summer, has spurred the growth of English apples, and then a dry September allowed the picking to get started early.

木瓜魚肉花生湯 Papaya, Fish and Peanut Soup


前幾天我們才說都快十月尾了,今年的氣候還這麼温和,很多樹葉都仍沒換上秋裝。怎料昨天從 Bermuda 捲來的颶風尾巴特如其來似的便橫掃整個英國。今天餘威未減,整個下午風狂雨暴。出去辦點事,走在路上有會被風捲起的惶恐 !

祝福香港 (二) Bless Hong Kong ( 2 )


傍晚來臨前,丈夫問要不要去看看我愛的湖邊秋色 ? 


我知道葉子們都還沒有轉黃,但也領會他的好意。

又再來到 Lake Vyrnwy。 不是假日,四週回復了應有的寧靜。

祝福香港 (一) Bless Hong Kong ( 1 )



從當初一個貧窮落後的漁港,到發展成為今天國際知名的大都會 ; 香港滙聚了多少人努力付出而獲得的成果 。

From a poor little fishing village to develop into a world-renowned metropolis today, Hong Kong has come a long way.  Millions of ordinary people have worked hard to create the affluence and success that everyone enjoys today.

蘋果肉桂蛋糕 Apple and Cinnamon Cake



英國今年的春夏季因為來得比往年早,於是感覺上逗留的時間很短暫,離去也怱促。

Spring and summer came earlier than usual in the UK this year. As a result it feels like they were here for less time and their departure feels quite abrupt.
