Sometimes You have to Do the Washing Up!

Saturday evening is usually my slot in the kitchen, however last night it was my turn to do the dishes.  In honour of formally marking another year wiser the boss offered to make dinner.  I in exchange would need to keep the boys busy giving mum the time and space she needed to prepare.

Being a fairly cold Saturday afternoon in January I gave the boys two options around museums.  One involving the cinema, night at the museum 3 or the games masters exhibit at the museum. They went for the movie. Deep down I was looking forward to seeing a load of retro games. It would just have to wait.  So night(mare) at the museum it was…..which actually turned out to be pretty good, reminding me to be not so grumpy. That the boys sitting next to me wouldn’t be boys for long.

We came back to a lovely arranged dinner setting, a lady who had not sat down for 5 mins, and amazingly chilled. The table arranged for 4 to begin with, crudity, some nuts, a glass of wine. A pizza for the boys and then some chillax time whilst the main event was rustled up.

  • Pork Chops cooked as per Sweet n Smoky Pork Chops with Cabbage and Mash from The Great British Farmhouse Cook Book
  • A warm salad of roasted kale, coconut and tomatoes from a modern way to eat
  • Pearl Barley and roast courgette salad
  • Chocolate Creme Brulee

It didn’t seem right to get the camera out, sometimes you just to have accept your in the moment and enjoy it…….oh and that it was my turn to wash up.
