Good morning all another bright sunny start to a frosty day. Yesterday was a glorious sunny day but bitterly cold. The engineer came and changed the filters on Mikes machine and also sorted out his portable cylinder. He was pleased to know that I was well aware of just how dangerous oxygen cylinders are. Fortunately he was very quick as I was almost ready to serve the lunch when he arrived. At the moment my slow cooker is reheating the broth I made yesterday. Once it is done I can strain out the meat to serve with a salsa verde and the broth will have some small pasta added and a good grating of parmesan. I thought I would do carrots and beetroot to go with the meat, sort of boiled beef and carrots but brought up to date with a little Italian influence. I think sweet vegetables will be nice with a sharp piquant sauce.
Typing this one paragraph has taken ages as Dan seems to think I would like to play ball and keeps dropping the ball in my lap. He must think I am very stupid as I refuse to understand and just let the ball fall on the floor. He has finally given up trying to train me and gone back to bed. I'm sure he thinks I am a pretty rubbish dog and a very thick human not worth wasting his time on.
I have a big pile of ironing waiting for me so I might just as well get on with that while the food comes to temperature. The salsa verde will only take moments to make once I have located a big bunch of parsley. Sadly my window box only has a little parsley left and nowhere near enough for the sauce. I will have to have a quick run to Tesco.
In the mean time have a lovely weekend all of you
