Doodlecat's Homepage

Picture of Doodle - a 
black cat

Welcome to Doodlecat, where we enjoy the pleasures of life (with a slight bias towards the outdoors). This page is regularly updated with news and views plus information about any additions or changes to the various parts of the site. It acts as Doodlecat’s Blog too, so the odd rant considered opinion may pop up from time to time.

I would love to be able to say that Doodlecat is all my own work, but it isn’t. Much of the outdoors content is courtesy of the splendid people who participate in the annual TGO Challenge (there is a section entirely devoted to this unique event) and many others.

To help in tracking down that elusive morsel on Doodlecat, the search facility under the title bar above is tailored to help you find it, either on this home page (Doodlecat's Blog) all the rest of the site (Main Site) or – if all else fails - the internet!

So have a rummage around the old cat basket and enjoy your time with us!

Spice up your sausage rolls!

No need to buy special sausage meat specially blended with exotic herbs and unicorn droppings. Good quality plain meat will do just fine. Here's a tip from my old mum. When making your sausage rolls, add half a tablespoon of medium curry powder to each pound of sausage meat and mix it in well. Then make the rolls as usual.

The result will be absolutely delicious sausage rolls, not with a curry flavour but an indefinable extra something that makes them very more-ish. Mmmmm.

A smear of Dijon mustard around the sausage is nifty too...

And what wine would you recommend to go with the sausage rolls? (Sod the turkey, the sossidges sound good to me!)

I can taste them now.
Not literally but ....

Turkey ?????

Why do we eat Turkey.
Every year we kill millions of Turkey's and their revenge on us is the blandness of the meat, regardless of how well it is cooked.

That is why we have to smother it in Cranberry and bread sauce.

I'd rather just have the pork and the sausage rolls, and I actually like the Brussel sprouts.

Anyway, what wine?

A decent Vacqueyras stands up to sausage rolls very well :-)

We always have a capon - it tastes! It's tremendous when served with a sage & onion and (good quality) sausage meat stuffing
