Monday Morning 7 days to go
Good morning all, well it is only just morning I am up at very stupid o'clock but I will not be sitting around for long as it is very cold. I could well have a mug of the remaining soup and go back to my duvet. I made some very crunchy croutons to go with it with the remains of a heavily seeded loaf a good splash of olive oil and some garlic salt. A very good way to use up what was a very stale loaf.
Today I am in the mood for some fish so it will be Basa fillets with dauphinoise potatoes and greens of some kind. Then if I remember to get them out we can have some pork chops tomorrow. I have rather a lot of potatoes at the moment so I think I will try making mash and freezing it. Mashed potatoes are always useful and it will save them going all sprouty. I need to get to grips with the vegetable situation before the next box full arrives tomorrow. I can see a big tray of roasted roots being on the menu at some point.
I am keeping a close eye on the weather and though they have forecast snow I hope it will not be coming this far south just yet. After the 16th it can do what it likes - now how selfish is that!!!! Anybody got any money on a white Christmas? I can't remember the last time we had one.
Well thats about it for now I am quietly freezing so I am back off to my warm bed with a mug of hot soup. Have a good day all - this time next week I will be packing the car for France and on my way. Shiona is coming over on the Sunday night so she will not have to make a very early start and we can leave at a civilised time.
