Toad In The Hole
1 lb sausages
4oz all purpose/plain flour
pinch of salt
250ml or 1/2 pint milk
lard of shortening
Mix flour and salt in a basin, make a hollow in the centre and drop in egg.
Stir with a wooden spoon and add liquid gradually, until all the flour is worked in.
Beat well and add remaining liquid.
Skin sausages and cut in half. Place in a dish with a few bits of shortening and cook in a hot oven 425 oF for about 10 minutes.
Pour batter over the partly cooked sausages and cook for a further 30 minutes.
Now for my trusty side kick. We have been close these past couple of days as it has been snowing. I will say she has earned her keep this year and I would hate to be without her!!!
The one good thing about Thursday's weather though, was that although it was minus 12 oC because there was no wind it felt a lot warmer. On Wednesday it was a similar temperature, but because there was a wind it felt so much colder. In fact my poor eyes were stinging with the cold on Wednesday.
We are in for another dumping of snow on Saturday and one next Tuesday. So I am guessing me and my side kick will be very close over this next week!!
