Friday was another of my days off work. This week I have worked a full four days at the hospital! The ‘heat wave’ has continued to bless us with high temperatures, in the mid 20 degrees (although it was a bit too humid by far!)
After the success of last weeks BBQ (these BBQs are costing me a fortune!) another family BBQ is planned for tomorrow!
For last weeks BBQ I had vegetarian Mediterranean sausages swilled down with sparkling rose wine. This week I have got Quorn peppered steaks and to serve with salad and Pearl potatoes, swilled down with Merlot wine :p
Today was also David’s day off and after going to see Man of Steel at the Showcase cinema, (just to listen to Hans Zimmer’s soundtrack!) David did some work on the house and I cooked a Mexican stew (which I saw on the Good Food website!) and substituted the chicken for Quorn chicken, added kidney beans and served with tortillas. Yummy!
I spent most of the afternoon making bread from a recipe on the BBC Good Food website. The result was a well defined loaf which I then served up with the regional delicacy ‘Blind Scouse.’ I have been making the scouse ever since I have found how cheap and tasty it is to make, served with a home baked loaf was divine. I also swilled down the fruits of my labour with a nice glass of J.P. Chenet – Colombard-Sauvignon. Delicious!
