Steak, truffle butter, spuds and broad beans - Sunday Fare

Routine - Now in 3D

Late winter: sunrises, flowers - inside and out, preparing the garden for the productive time of the year, malting cat on clean bed linen.

The sun is getting warmer and the days longer. Woo Hoo!

Great weekend

After a hard week, on Sunday I even got time to make soup for Monday night.



Pre-liquidising and adding the sour cream and chives (after liquidising it just looks like the picture in the book above).

And the biggest surprise was the verdict from the boys: "the best soup ever."  I'll have to add this one to the regular meal list!

Routine continued

Kids with colds (they all survived), ongoing heating problems (now fixed) and the washing - the never ending washing (still going strong)

oh, and the cooking (getting back to basics)

makes me glad that spring is coming soon (and that's when you know who gets back).

Wake up (damn early)

Go to work (no photos - this a family safe blog)

Get home (and cook dinner)

Eat dinner (favourite part)

Crash out so that we can do it all over again (purr)

Oh, and in that week, somewhere we also collectively fitted in near disaster (central heating breakdown), near snow (so near and yet so far; so cold and yet so not snowing), and near full week work and school attendance (four out of five ain't bad).

But its Friday now, whoo hoo!
