Shades of Autumn


Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge

I am linking my orange collage to Project Alicia for this weeks orange challenge. I love how orange is so warm at this time of year.

I also have a new recipe to try this weekend which looks kind of orange in the book!

Root vegetable boulangere. I love potatoes done this way so I imagine the winter vegetables with them will be gorgeous.

There are some stunning shades of orange over here this week

I made this

This was so quick and delicious I thought I would share it with you. It is from a very old Good Food magazine.

Beef Stir Fry

Takes 30 minutes and serves 2

You will need

350g beef (stir fry or rump or sirloin) cut into thin strips
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp dark soy sauce
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
small bunch spring onions sliced on the diagonal
200g roasted antipasto peppers in oil drained and sliced

boiled rice, to serve
you could stir through a bag of mixed salad leaves just before serving
I roasted red & yellow pepper instead of the antipasto because I had them in.

Marinate the beef
Put the beef strips in a non-metallic bowl and cover with the vinegar, soy and Worcestershire sauce. Leave for 20 minutes, or if you have time, overnight.

Stir fry
Heat a dry wok until it is very hot. Tip in the beef, marinade and spring onions, stir fry for 2 – 3 minutes. Add the peppers then stir fry for another 2-3 minutes.
Serve with boiled rice.

It was quick
It looked pretty and
It tasted gorgeous

As usual I forgot to take a picture of the finished dish! I photographed the picture in the magazine
