Supper Happened....kind of...August 1st by Kevin

Well...sometimes....things don't work. I think I was being stupid. I wasn't interested enough in the menu, it was half-hearted and because of that it was not a good supper.

I was embarrassed to serve it to people. I charged no one and I would never have paid for what I gave people. To begin I forgot to put the carageen in the panna cotta....I put in agar not thinking...then I just didn't set. So I whipped up a batch of raspberry sorbet. That was nice.

I could not find sea I went with spinach. The mushrooms tasted of white a bad way. The crust on the pastry was pretty much a chestnut crumble under mushroom.

The fritters were fine. The batter was bland and uninteresting.

The salad was its usual self, I have made it before.

I sat at the table and couldn't bring myself to eat more than a bite of each item of food. This supper taught me a lesson, I can not word this lesson but it happened.

This is the end of this post. Not to positive, but I am looking forward. I'm terribly happy with this weeks coming up Secret Supper in the Joy of Cha. It has no meat in it and I am entirely happy to make it and know it'll taste amazing.

.....also...I may have put tarragon in the dip for the fritter instead of rosemary...this I realised at about 1am....for this I have no excuse....

Making/Baking with the Sister. by Kevin

What a day we had! Michelle arrived at 9:30 or so this morning. I knew we had to go show a wonderful tourist around the city in the afternoon. So we had to get as much done in as little time as possible. With Michelle learning some of these recipes I am reluctant to do any prep work and we start everything from scratch. The only thing I got around to doing yesterday was leaving the freezer bowl for the icecream in a freezer. So in the order that they emerged from the kitchen!

It was great to see Michelle's mind off things for a while today. We had a laugh. For people who don't know which is the majority of you, at the start of the year we lost our Father and Grandad one week apart. It's been particulary hard for my little sister and sometimes I worry that I don't know what to do for her. If this helps her feel better in any little way I'd gladly spend all week creating tasty things with her. But at least for the moment it'll be once a week and it'll be wonderful. Thanks for reading!
