July's monthly sampler
I have a chicken in the oven. A whole roast chicken to myself.
I'm roasting some potatoes and making gravy and bread sauce to go with it. My favourite meal.
I shall be feasting off it for the next few days.
I thought I'd better eat something healthy, so I have added some strawberries to meringues and cream.
Eton mess. Or, eaten mess as it will become.
The soap and the soap dish (a scallop shell) are completely dry.
Evidently I am the only member of my family not to leave the soap in a scummy puddle of water, and the only one to empty the shell every day.
Eating when it suits me.
I aim to produce dinner between six and seven when everyone is home, but I'm finding I am eating much later while I am alone.
