So, I forgot to take out the mince for Friday meatballs and had to resort to a Jamie's 15 minute meal last night: Chorizo Carbonara. Surprisingly, with a simpler salad than that in the book, it did genuinely take only around 15 minutes. I went a bit overboard with the chilli but the boys were up for it - which was good.
It's midday Saturday. The house is reprovisioned, menus done for next week, and the washing is on the line (in the main). Luckily, in Katherine's absence the bathrooms are self-cleaning.
Time to test the toasted sandwich maker with that leg ham I bought before dragging the kids out for a ride in the sunshine - yay!
