My life is very small. Most days I move from kitchen to garden and back to kitchen. I might drive a child to training or a party but that really only means a move to the car and back. Kitchen-garden-car-kitchen. There are certainly days when I get bored. There are days when life seems like a treadmill. Dishwasher-washingmachine-clothesline-dishwasher.
And then, there are days like yesterday, when I feel very fortunate indeed.
The recipe I used is available here.
Back to Darina for a recipe for redcurrant jelly. The same recipe is available here.
I made pork meatballs with fresh sage, oregano and fennel. I’d fried bacon at lunchtime and kept the pan just to fry the meatballs in it. I cooked some noodles and the veg in the broth. I threw in a handful of chopped chard at the last minute. This was one of those dinners that will never be made the same again. It was totally yummy.
Lemon shortcake biscuits (recipe here) with leftover redcurrant pulp and thick yogurt. A bit seedy but no-one complained.
My life is small but very good.
