Gordon Ramsay – Pasta with Tomato, Anchovy and Chilli

Cheap, easy and quick, this is a proper store cupboard staple and the kind of thing perfect for a midweek meal. Buy jarred or canned anchovies, capers and olives in bulk and save time and money – all you need is the tomatoes.

Next to arrive was a paper back copy of Aenigma by Erus Ludus. This book will be added to my ‘to read’ pile which is now getting rather high. Books arrive faster then I can read them.

Another football arrived this month. Very useful because our dog Barley loves playing with footballs when we take he down to Crimdon Beach.
Some sample size Kosé Cell Radiance creams came. I bit beyond me but I’m sure Mrs.R will know how to use them.
A Fimo kids Robot Form and Play Set arrived in the post and went straight in the box for the StrayAid charity shop.

On the 17th 2 books arrived. The first was a copy of Man at the Helm by Nina Stibbe

The Durham Brewery – Bede’s Chalice – Belgian Triple

We picked up the Bede’s Chalice – Belgian Triple from The Durham Brewery a little while ago.
Yesterday we decided to enjoy it with lunch. I opened the bottle and there was a big rush of froth. A very lively beer indeed. In poured into the glass with a big foamy head. On the nose there are aroma’s of bread dough with a little peach. On the palate it pacts a big punch with notes of spice, peach and mango. The 9% ABV holds all these flavours on the palate. There is a pleasing semi sweet alcohol finish with strong notes of orange peel that lasts and lasts. A great beer for these cold days.

Chateau Venus Graves 2011 from Lidl

Chateau Venus 2011 (CHATEAU VENUS, 3, Pertigues – Brouquet
33720 Illats – France) is a young and sprightly wine from Graves, Bordeaux. It is Merlot lead so gives a lot of plum on the palate with a slight tart back taste from the tannins. There is a little flora on the nose but not much given its age. It is not a tradition Graves wine, so it is better suited to lighter foods. At about £8 a bottle from Lidl is is not bad value but could do with being cellared for a couple of years to help build in a little depth.

Steetley Pier, Hartlepool

Yesterday we drove just down the coast to Hartlepool. After looking round the historic Headland area, we headed a little way North to take some photos of the Steetley Pier which was once part of the Steetley Magnesite Works ( Hartlepool Magnesia Works and Palliser Works ). The Works have now been demolished and all that is now left is the pier which was used to bring sea water to Steetley Magnesite Works.
The light was not very good so I decided to make most of the photos high contrast B&W.
We have seen the pier many times, but only from a distant while walking our dog on Crimdon Beach, but it has always been a bit far to walk to or more importantly, much to far to walk back from.

Hi. I hope that my little letter will find you in good mood. My name is Anna. I live in Russia. I am 28 years old.I’m a rather shy girl at first. I open up a little more as I get to know someone. I do not know what to write, I’m very excited, because I never used the Internet for acquaintances. My lady friend has told that I can find the good and kind man in the Internet. I always wanted to get acquainted with the kind man not from Russia. In Russia it is a lot of alcoholics. Men here do not respect women. I hope that my letter has interested you. Also I send my photo. I will write more about myself and I will send more photos if you answer my letter. Take care!
