You can see by the food splatters on this page that this is one of Jessie's favourite dishes to share with us.
The nights Dad's away we generally enjoy a little more relaxed dining. Not so when Jessie takes charge. Though with no chicken mince in stock she had to substitute pork mince. With no tinned tomatoes she used fresh combined with some condensed tomato soup. With no spaghetti, she used fettuccine. The addition of a little Chinese Five Spice to the mince, and those meatballs sang.
So all in all we could have done without the recipe.
Thankfully she didn't need eggs.
Two pyjama-clad girls could be seen searching the dome for breakfast this morning. We eat quite a lot of eggs and the seven old hens are struggling to keep up.
Which means baking occurs as surplus eggs dictate,
this Raspberry Coconut Slice using up the last three today.
I was given these flowers as a thankyou gift the other day.
I'd forgotten how much I love fresh flowers.
I've been moving them around the house with me so as to fully enjoy them.
I'd love to buy a bunch every town day. But such frivolity isn't in my nature.
Instead I'll buy some tinned tomatoes and spaghetti.
