    A mainly digital setup with a musical amplifier and endearing 1970's speakers. A CD player that hardly ever gets used and a turntable that is good enough to remind my how enjoyable my old vinyl is. Some cables and things.

    Just had a taste, I have a little magic ingredient if I want a tad more sweetness and tang in stews and braises, which is a good tablespoon of HP Sauce.

    From my slow cook over the weekend. Spuds were done using a mandoline to get an even thin slice, like very very thick crisps. Then mixed with garlic oil, salt and pepper, with a few sprigs of rosemary, then into the oven. Kale was steamed, carrots fished out of the slow cooker.

    Slow cooking juice was sieved and finished with cornflour and butter to make the gravy.

    Not a pretty pic, but man it was good.
