Roulade

Like the idea of creamed spinach or cauliflower. I've never made the roulade because parsnips are not my favourite veg!
And as for sprouts - don't like them in any shape or form!!!

Sprouts

Totally agree Sonya. Sprouts were a little mistake and then they made cabbages!!.... Would anyone really,really miss sprouts if they never existed? : )

Sprouts

I would. I love 'em. Look forward to them in winter every year.
When we were in Oz earlier this year, I was interested to see the sprouts in among all the exotica!

I'm with you Welshcookie - I enjoy sprouts especially around Christmas.

Mixed Vegetable Roulade

How about mixing the veg that are in season. You could have a spring roulade with broad beans, peas, young spring onions little carrots, and sliced asparagus then served warm with a salad, and then a summer one with the above with added cauliflower florets, French beans, runner beans also served warm with a salad or lovely new potatoes and small boiled beetroot, then autumn with carrots, parsnips, more cauli, sliced fennel, runner beans, and finally winter with lots of root vegetables, mashed potatoes and lots of dark green leaves lightly boiled!

Roulade

That's a lovely idea Katrina ! In fact this roulade really is good enough to eat all year round with seasonal changes . Mine worked perfectly gluten free too .

Sprouts

Welshcookie....just out of interest why would sprouts be included in 'exotica' are they not popular in OZ? Climate maybe.Have never been but hoping to go in April next year or maybe New Zealand.

Sprouts

Don't think sprouts are considered 'exotica' over here! Not by people I know, anyway!

I thought Welshcookie just meant there are lots of interesting vegetables over here, and then there are sprouts as well!

Don't see them very often and it's probably the Brits who buy them when they do appear!

Sonya that's funny. I did not know you were in Australia.

When the weather is slightly warm here I automatically switch to salad rather than root veg!

I always imagine warm weather in australia.Especially at xmas when its your summer.... why would you eat sprouts!!

Sprouts as exotica... My mind boggles!!

Which part of australia are you in?

Home from home

When we stopped over in Singapore for two days on our way home, we visited the Botanic Gardens and went to the restaurant for lunch. The soup of the day was Leek and Potato!! Coming from Wales, that made me laugh as it is one of my favourite soups in mid-winter rather than in hot and very sweaty Singapore.
I was amused to see the sprouts in Sydney nestling up against the wheatgrass. Australia is so wonderfully Australian and still European in some ways. And they drive on the correct side of the road.

Very jealous, have wanted to visit Australia and New Zealand for some time. Was it a holiday? Where did you get to? Similar to Wales?! Next year we are definitely going...Sydney...if its as wonderful as Vancouver I will be very happy!

Sydney

Yes, it was a once in a lifetime holiday to Sydney to visit our son. We had the most wonderful time and I would go back like a shot.
I've never been out of Europe before so I have nothing to compare it with.
It was such fun being a tourist. At home we never stop for coffee every day, eat out every day, and visit all the sights. Nip on and off buses, ferries and trains.
There were loos everywhere you might want them; our council is closing them down because they are too expensive. Words fail me as we are a tourist county! Don't get caught short in Pembrokeshire!!

"I always imagine warm weather in australia.Especially at xmas when its your summer.... why would you eat sprouts!!"

Why indeed!! But why roast a turkey and steam a Christmas Pud. when it's 42C. Lots of people still do - it's the great British tradition! And before air-con you can imagine how hot the kitchens would have been!!

I'm in South Australia on the coast, so the summers are warm but not often extremely hot. At present it can goe down to 5 degrees, or even less, at night but we're having lots of sunny days of around 18C. Not bad for winter!!

bored with meat

I had to look twice while at the supermarket today, there on the shelf were 2 Christmas puddings and I don't think they were leftovers from last year.
I'll keep an eye on them to see if they sell in this lovely hot weather.

There are some very nice suggestions for fillings for the roulade, must try them sometime.
