And pulls defeat from the jaws of success... or something.

Yesterday I cooked a winter vegetable casserole with spicy dumplings, from scratch.

I had a thick moment and forgot that I needed to have pre-soaked the chickpeas over-night. So they didn't cook (hard as ball-bearings!) and I had to fish them out of the finished casserole. Which took a while, but I've left them to soak since and shall be re-using them tonight in my second attempt. D'oh.

That said, the rest of it was lovely, and my dumplings were fluffy and light. I may end up a reasonable cook eventually.
