I do love mornings, they are positively the best part of the day. It's the potential they bring. Of a morning after dropping my gorgeous Biscuits off at school, I potter for a little time and then I must have a cappuccino. I don't do caffeine much, it doesn't agree with me, but I have this one caffeine ritual everyday. I then force myself to sit and ponder the deeds for the day............
So today, apart from the usual (B.O.R.I.N.G!) necessary domestic chores like dusting and hoovering, I need to replenish our frozen baked goods as stores are running low. Cakes, biscuits, tray-bakes etc freeze really well and it means each day I can put a little something the the Biscuits' lunch bags for a burst of energy to get them through the afternoon at school. Hubby Biscuit can help himself too!! So a peruse of baking books me thinks! Also I'm feeling like a plateful of comfort food this evening, macaroni cheese with added cauliflower (Hubby hates it so will add after his is served) with lots of green veg. That does sound nice, not that I need a recipe to work from, but I love the photo in Rachel Allen's Food at Home book. I, like many of you have been making varying forms of macaroni cheese for years, with or without onions, spring onions, pancetta, mascarpone, gruyere, strong cheddar, peas. The variations are limitless! Has to be Marshalls Macaroni though! I am strict on that. But in all else, it's one of those 'what do I fancy?' meals. Yummy!! I can't wait!!
A couple of stitches here and there and a little looksy at my favourite blogs and I'm set for the day!
