We were all set to go out this morning and finally weed the messy front flower beds, but the rain had other ideas!!
So we started indoor jobs instead. I stayed in the kitchen after breakfast, first I moved things from fridge to freezer, a sweet and sour dish of Lovely Hubbys and a curry of mine, both leftovers from the other nights tea but not really wanted to eat again this weekend. I prepped todays lunch and mixed up the Mediterranean veggies for tonight's tea so that, as my hero Nigel would say, 'the flavours can get to know each other'.
While I was doing this and LH was busy upstairs on the computer doing businessy financial things the sun came out again so I rushed through what I was doing ready to venture out to the great outdoors, then no sooner had I cleared the decks ready to go out then it clouded over again and great fat drops of rain fell onto the kitchen skylight above my head.
So instead I am browsing through some of the cookbooks that I guess I always knew at the back of my mind I didn't really need. The odds and sods picked up at charity shops and car boot sales, that I was tempted to buy due to silly low prices but that never really were my style at all ... and some of them so full of meat dishes that my first instinct is to snap the covers shut like I used to as a child when I came across pictures of spiders in books and comics.
Any recipes, or even just good ideas that I come across I am simply photographing and I will leave them loaded on the computer for reading again or printing out at a later date.
There are some interesting things to read ...
... and a few things that I might make ....
... but not enough to make me keep the physical book on the shelves any longer.
Car Boot sale season is almost upon us and it will be nice to once again make some more space in the house and pocket some extra cash while we do so.
