New Fridge Food Post

Just to let you know that I have written a new Fridge Food post over the way. It's veal with a Marsala and mushroom sauce, asparagus and saute potatoes. Veal with Marsala is an Italian classic and brings back so many happy memories of long atmospheric lunches overlooking Lake Como in the sunshine.

I would love to sit here and write just now, but I'm afraid I can't. This evening I am expecting my third set of house guests in two weeks and I have the place to clean, food to buy, meals to consider and prepare, laundry to do...and a thousand other jobs.

The snowfall of recent days has disappeared as the thermometer has crept above zero, but now we are back to damp, dank, chill and grey - my most hated weather. The snowdrops are battling nobly on, only just getting going thanks to this long cold winter. Which reminds me that I must go out and pick some for my guests' room. They are travelling over from France and I have just heard that their flight was cancelled (French striking again I believe, though I was blissfully unaware of this) and they are on a train to Calais. I think they will be needing a roaring fire, good wine and a warm bed when they finally get here, so I'd better get going.

Till the next time.

Have a good weekend.

No matter how awful the trip, coming into your warm house to see a fire, snowdrops in the bedroom and a delicious meal - all the inconvenience will fade away.
You are a trouper with all that company!
