Ding Dong the witch is dead! the high speed shrug is done and should be winging its way to my sister to wear to the wedding soon. Pictures when I get one of her in it.

And now for my reference - White bean and tomato stew. This has to be one of the tastiest things I've made for a long time. I was literally using my fingers to scrape bits out of the bowl after I'd supposedly finished it. Let for garlic and onions burn a bit if you can stomach it the little smokey bite is lovely.

White bean and tomato stew.

2 cloves of garlic,
1 red onion,
1 can of cannellini beans,
1 can of chopped tomatoes,
2 rasher of smoked back bacon,
1 tbs of olive oil.
A splash of red wine.

Finely chop the onion and garlic and fry until soft in the olive oil
Roughly chop the bacon and fry until crispy.
Drain the beans and add to the pan. Cook until softened slightly.
Add the chopped tomatoes and simmer down.
Add the red wine and simmer over a low heat until the stew has reduced by a 1/3 or a 1/2 depending on how thick you like your stew.

Voila. This was great hot, witha side of courgettes cooked in red wine, and lovely cold for lunch the next day. Nice savoury umami ness to this, probably the garlic and bacon eh?
