Usually my husband likes to take over in the kitchen when he can, this weekend however he is preoccupied with laying a new floor in our house. This gives me free rein in the kitchen!
So today’s delight, seasonal vegetables with mash, roast potatoes, chicken and Yorkshire puddings.
I like to add a tiny bit of sugar to my peas, salt and pepper the roasties and stuff the chicken skin with sausage or bacon.
Anything to jazz up the Sunday Lunch. After all the same dinner with a change of meat every weekend can get a bit dull.
We often have meat left over so a pear and pomegranate chicken salad is on tomorrow’s lunch menu with baby spinach and olive oil as a dressing.
I’ve been feeling more myself the past couple of days, better energy levels and feeling happy.
I think my change came about after a little wander through the woods. Seeing the light through the leaves, acorns everywhere and a cool breeze. We took our dog with us, she loves sniffing and running around in the leaves, it was just a happy moment I’m holding onto right now. With a local lockdown pending it was good to just get out the house.
I’ve a day out next week planned with my friend and daughter, we all need to keep making plans, have something to look forward too, whether it’s a nice meal or a walk, seeing a friend or spending time with family.
Don’t give up. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and stay positive.
