It's big coat and comfort food weather guys!

When we first met JB wanted to take me for a walk and asked if I had a big coat. To most of you that may seem like a normal question in autumn, I however just scrunched my face up and asked what for. The animal I'd liken myself most to is a cat... Up until around 2 years ago as a rule I rarely went outside in the cold or rain so you see, my confusion was justified... At least that is what I tell myself.

Now however, I like to think I'm a real grown up. I have a big coat that I wear rarely and am instinctively drawn towards big cosy jumpers rather than the barely there dresses of my early twenties, when planning an outfit to go 'out out' in. Autumn has since then become one of my favourite times of year (obviously because it isn't yet super cold). 

This recipe is inspired by a gorgeous lamb dish I ate @ShrigleyHallHotel. I love the fragrance the fresh herbs add with the sweetness of the beetroot. It works just as well with chicken and king prawn as it does with lamb.

Perfect flu busting ingredients with a bit of chilli to warm your insides.
