Never mind, it will feel good on Sunday and even better on Monday when I go swimming while the children go back to school - at least I hope it feels good but you never know, maybe there will be tears mingling with the swimming water.
Once home yesterday, Thermione really earned her keep.
First I made some white rolls which were absolutely delicious so, after sharing one with Beth, the rest were hurriedly bagged up and popped into the freezer. I think today I will make some granary rolls and then I am covered for all eventualities!
After that I made the cheese sauce for the lasagne. Thermione makes wonderful cheese sauce and there was enough left that I have some to freeze for another time. Cauliflower cheese, anyone?
When I got out what I needed to put the lasagne together I realised that I didn't have enough pasta. Neither of us fancied a trip to the shop so out came Thermione again, in went 100g plain flour, one egg and a dash of olive oil and out came the pasta roller. A short time after that I had fresh lasagne sheets and Beth had some ribbons of pasta to take home for her dinner. The completed lasagne is now in the freezer for Thursday.
Also, non-Thermione related, I dealt with some plums that were on yellow sticker in Morrisons. There was absolutely nothing wrong with them except the date! I shall jam them later on today; the fruit/.sugar mixture just needs boiling up now.
Today I have to lick downstairs into what passes for order in this house. That means doing things I have been avoiding, like taking stuff to the garage. I will get wet but never mind! Oh, and, just remembered, I have some shopping to do. Not a lot, but some.
So I'd better get off my bum and get started.
Breakfast: toast and jam, apple
Lunch: vegetable omelette, salad, yogurt
Dinner: Takeaway Chinese (sorry), crackers and cheese
Yesterday I changed what I'd planned for lunch after realising that I had a lot of eggs so Beth and I enjoyed a deep omelette/tortilla type thingy. There's a slice left over so that's my lunch for today. Nice.
Hello! It's my last day of freedom today, so am pottering about. What is Thermione? I'm presuming she is a fancy pants food processor?! That heats up?? Have you a post where we meet her?!ReplyDelete
You're back tomorrow then. Ours start on Thursday but the first two days are INSETs.ReplyDelete
Thermione is my thermomix and she's wonderful. Here's a link.
I've got the older version, the 3.1 which looks quite a lot different and doesn't have the chip function. Wouldn't be without her for anything. I bought her with a legacy from my dear Auntie May.
Wow she looks a complicated piece of kit! But beautiful! I'm not showing the HG - he's gadget mad - and despite Beryl and Martin in the kitchen, he'd be itching to getting me one!!ReplyDelete
