None of this is complaining, you understand; au contraire, I am veree 'appy, mademoiselles. It's just a wee bit "aaaargh" and a wee bit "when-do-I-do-the-laundry".
But since it's still only April, we shall sit back and smell the roses/smoked brioche puffs/mince and tatties. I have a few days until the madness and fun begins.
I was remiss in my homely duties today because shopping, despite being on the list was forgotten; instead, I went to yoga....wonderful, tiring.....then met Shona for coffee and lunch....lovely.... and straight to the school to draw and paint circus decorations....strange. I made macaroni cheese when I got home, explaining to Kelly along the way what 'necessity is the mother of invention' means; she asked why the cheese sauce tasted even more delicious och, she's a flatterer that 'un than normal although I did get "um...it needs some more pepper, mum"...there's always a critic....and I explained that I only had a little drop of milk left so I used cream for the rest of the white sauce before adding the cheddar cheese. Hence my use of the phrase regarding mothers and necessities.
This week, we've had................
Chicken and Olive Stew with dumplings
Curried Parsnip Soup with Quick Pan Bread
Spaghetti Sugo (Spag Bog by any other name)
Potato and Butternut Squash Soup
Lemon Roast Chicken stuffed with Savoury Rice
Plus roasted carrots, potatoes, onions, butternut squash,
steamed broccolli and green beans and baby boiled tatties.
I shall make a new shopping list up tonight, do the trip tomorrow and add it this week, along with one or two recipes. Have a wonderful week, bloggy peeps.
