The veg box brought us a little bag of tomatillos, amazing tomato like balls of green wrapped in delicate little green paper lanterns. I’d never seen these before and fortunately the bag came with a recipe, a green chilli and a bulb of garlic to make a salsa. Using the lime and a little sugar to dampen the acidity of a diced onion and then blitzing in a food processor. Very refreshing, zingy flavour.
Piano started again and although I’m not thrilled at having to do scales I feel alive and excited about the fresh start. The teacher has made me feel better than I thought I was and given me a renewed confidence that as an adult learner my efforts will be rewarded.
We’ve had a mixed bag of weather, a mini little heat wave and the wasps nest that I can see from my study window has been going crazy with activity. Sometimes makes my stomach turn and then there are moments where I have to marvel at the runway to the entrance and how they just get on with it.
The main activity of the house has been revolving around the boy and his imminent departure to University. As some folks read this we will be no doubt have dropped him off with his PC, a new wok (with a lid), a supply of staples on the food front and I mustn’t forget the lasagne in the freezer! There will no doubt be a tearful goodbye as he starts a new adventure and I mustn’t forget a good podcast for the drive home to take our minds elsewhere.!
I’ve put my thoughts on playlists down into another post and if you’ve ever wondered how to create a spotify QR code, export the playlist itself the links are there.
It’s going to be odd just the three of us in the house and the signals have already been given that I need to cook less! That fourth portion eater that we count on to hoover up the calories is going to be missed. Menu wise we haven’t got much planned, I think we’ll all be in shock.
Hope you have a good weekend, and thanks for Coffee.
The #WeekendCoffeeShare is an informal weekly link-up hosted by Natalie the Explorer that serves as weekly heart beat and sort of of a mind-dump. Helps me reflect on my week, with a list of achievements, thoughts and rambles normally whilst drinking a beverage probably listening to music.
