For my part in between laundry and general sorting I made two home cooked meals, for lunch we had:
Vegetable mix: a large bag of chard, two small onions and three courgettes, all finely chopped and sauteed in a little oil. To this I added a home made cheese sauce and mixed thoroughly.
Since we are gluten free due to coeliac problems I used a brown rice spaghetti and cooked in boiling water until al dente.
Our evening meal was:
The meat and vegetable base consisted of: two onions, one sweet red pepper, two courgettes, 500g of organic beef mince, one box of sieved tomatoes and one beef stock cube dissolved in a little hot water. On top of this we added a layer of sliced and fried aubergine.
Instead of the ususal souffle type topping I went with a vegetable and potato mash mix, this consisted of five small white potatoes, two sweet potatoes and 500 grammes of chopped Brussel sprouts. Once cooked and drained mash the veg mixture and spread on top of the meat.aubergine layer. Top with a little grated cheese and brown under the grill.
I think we can safely say that the following subjects have been experienced these past two days:
Map reading, safe handling of large goods, interpretation of written diagrams, wood work and rudimentary mathematics. Tick VG Bookworm!
In closing Roo raised several smiles today as she announced the following:
" Dad gone, back soon!" and my favourite, " No! Mine!!"
A busy and blessed day, thank you Lord.
