Any POLDARK watchers here in the cafe?
I confess a large part of this post was conceived just as an excuse to talk about Poldark.
The season finale was this past Sunday, and although there were times during this past season when Ross was anything but heroic, I stuck with it and in the end I *almost* forgave him.
If you're interested, I found a really interesting podcast interviewing Ross about the whole situation. As a fan of the show, I enjoyed it, but as a writer, it had me thinking about how I create history for my characters. Lovely to listen to him really analyze his character and his relationships.
So the food connection (bear with me) -
In one of the last Season 2 episodes, Dr. Dwight tells Caroline's uncle that he suffers from the "sugar disease" which I assume is diabetes.
Watching that episode on the Sunday after Thanksgiving having eaten so many wonderful pies (and heading into Christmas cookie season), I was reminded how badly I needed something healthy to eat.
So I decided to play with some healthy foods.
First I baked some gorgeous sweet potatoes.
Then I added some sprouted lentils and toasted sunflower seeds
I had the idea to add in some greens. At first it looked like I had created an impossible mess, but they actually mashed down quite well.
I baked them for about fifteen minutes.
They made a great lunch.
|I tried adding some dried cranberries for a different flavor.|
So let's talk - food or Poldark????
