This dawns on us this morning, over our remaining slice of bread, and leads to a day of texting to decide what to have for tea tonight. In the end the decision is made for us by Kensington Waitrose's lack of anything to cook with, apart from reduced vine tomatoes, a very small bag of rocket, and a small packet of lamb steaks - Jilly D's lamb tagliata it is then.
In other culinary news today, I was amazed to discover Pret a Manger's new season soup is Shepherd's pie. I love shepherd's pie, and it seemed to be the perfect accompaniment to sitting in a sunny-but-freezing Cavendish Square, with the God-awful Sons and Lovers. However, it was a massive disappointment, quite watery and oily, and the veg was barely cooked, but I reckon the idea is genius. I may have to get experimental with some left overs next time. If there are any left overs next time.
Food of the Milos
Somebody is chipper this morning! That'll change when he has to go to work, mu-ha-ha-ha-ha!
Breakfast: boiled egg;
Lunch: Some of the Dalston Sweet Potato curry, which he was as unimpressed as we were, and the final jelly;
Dinner (at Claire's): Sausages, carrot and potato mash, broccoli, sweetcorn and a frozen yoghurt.
