A few things to try this month...
COOK WITH SQUASH
From the mottled and toad-like to the deckchair-striped, the humble squash is an immunity-boosting powerhouse packed with vitamin A and C. Why not try risotto studded with chunks of butternut?
BRIGHTEN UP YOUR ROOMS
Now that the nights are drawing in, it’s the perfect time to give your home a makeover. Boost your rooms with brightly coloured accessories and unique items that will make you smile. There’s no need for drearyness this side of the New Year!
MAKE YOUR CHRISTMAS PUD
We know it’s far too early to mention the C-word, but the last weekend in November is Stir-up Sunday, historically the day to make your pudding. Tradition says you stir from east to west and all the family has a turn while making a wish. Add a sixpence to bring good luck and prosperity!
CHECK YOUR ALARMS
Every year, 40 people die from carbon monoxide poisoning. The gas – which has no colour, taste or smell – can occur in faulty boilers and gas fires. Ensure yours are installed and regularly tested by Gas Safe Registered engineers and test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors now.
