St George’s Day – Bangers & Mash


Today in England we celebrate St George’s day. To mark the day I decided to cook some truly British grub in the form of bangers (sausage) and mash with caramelised onion and cider gravy…just a shame the dish didn’t really go with the beautiful warm Spring day we have experienced today with the temperatures touching 20oc.

The sausages were delicious apricot and sage sausages and I believe sausages are the few savory foods that can get away with a pinch of fruit in them. Hubby has a sasuage making kit winging it’s way to him now, so soon we’ll hopefully be having a go and making our own sausages.

Bring on the summer I say – BBQ’s, Pimms, Eton Mess, raspberries, eating alfresco, drinking wine on the patio, drinking cider with friends while camping…need I say more.
