ITB October and Let the Chicken Out!

October 14th, 2007

First things first. Last months seasonal food blogging event “In The Bag” was a great success, so thank-you to everyone concerned. It did, however, appear that I missed an entry - Apple Clove Bread from SmitaServesYouRight. I think I owe a massive apology for that!

This month (October) “In The Bag” is looking even better with a fantastic choice of seasonal ingredients: Pumpkins, Mushrooms and Leeks. Think you can cook anything with some of that lot? Head on over to A Slice of Cherry Pie (or click the logo in my sidebar) for more information!

Chicken Out!Finally, some of you perhaps know that Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall is running a new campaign to try and improve the quality of life for chickens - in particular, the disgusting practise of battery farming broiler chickens. You know how passionately we feel about this, and if you too support this great cause head to and show your support - turning a blind eye does not mean it’s not your responsibility!

    Pumpkin, mushroom and leeks, hmmm… I’m going to be butchering my pumpkin next weekend, we’ll have to think on this!

    Scott, you missed my avocado, fig and serrano ham salad as well. But never mind, I’ll try and get an October entry in. All favourite ingredients of mine. My mom joined a similar campaign to HFW, around 15 years ago in SOuth Africa, called Humanity for Hens. I don’t know if it is still going, but like everythin, needs a great roar from the general public before the government is forced to listen and legislate

    Katie: I love Pumpkin myself…so it’ll be great fun to come up with something new!

    African Vanielje: Apologies! My email seems to be disappearing lately and I don’t know what’s going on

    Goodness Scott!! Many many thanks - you’re awfully kind. Not to mention concentious! No apology required at all.
