I read this lovely meme on geranium cat's blog and thought I would pass it on. Things to do with food are always appealing!
What did you eat/drink today?
For breakfast two of our own eggs, scrambled with a slice of Ian's bread, toasted, and a glass of orange juice.
For lunch homemade soup using a variety of tired looking vegetables in the rack: onions, a single parsnip, one carrot, several potatoes beginning to sprout. Somehow and with the help of Marigold stock, lots of black pepper and cumin, they became a really good, slightly spicy soup with more homemade bread and butter and an apple to follow.
For tea some butcher's sausages, cooked slowly in oven with jacket potato and buttered broccoli and sweetcorn followed by an orange.
Somewhere in all of this I slipped in a slice of bread and jam, mugs and mugs of ludicrously weak tea and finished up with two glasses of red wine.
It is becoming clear that there is a reason that I am not losing weight.
What do you never eat/drink?
I don't like sprouts and have never been keen on sushi.
Even in desperation I wouldn't choose to have Malibu.
Favourite failsafe thing to cook (if you cook) or defrost if you don't
Something with eggs: scrambled or poached, omelette, quiche, anything with eggs in it.
Complete this sentence: In my refrigerator, you can always find
cheese of all sorts, butter, homemade jam, white wine
What is your favourite kitchen item?
A medium sized Sabatier knife (not a stainless steel one) which I have been using all my adult life.
Where would you recommend eating out - either on home turf or elsewhere?
The Yang Sing Chinese restuarant in Manchester's Chinatown.
World ends tomorrow. What would you like for your last meal?
Three courses: soup, a handraised pie and a pudding, all using produce grown here on my hillside eaten with my family round my kitchen table. And a bottle or two of wine of course.
