jill dupleix's sesame chicken salad with cucumber and celery

It's an odd sort of day today. We do a lot of little things, but the weather doesn't really play ball until late afternoon, which makes it seem longer than necessary. It doesn't really matter in the morning because we're visiting the Natural History Museum with Kendra, Brian and Finn, so the weather can do what it wants.

It's fairly blowy during our picnic outside the wildlife garden, but starts raining on the way home. And then stops, so I start doing some gardening, and then it starts again - FFS! However, by the end of the day it's lovely, I've hacked out the dead ivy from the back wall which encouraged our resident robins to spend a good 20 minutes hovering about a foot from me, swooping up insects, and Ana has already begun sorting our her holiday wardrobe.

With monkey in bed we have one of our favourite salads, with an exciting bottle of cider we saw in Waitrose yesterday, and justified buying because we didn't buy any muesli. Hmmm, muesli or cider - should we really have bought the booze?

Food of the Milos
Suddenly his gargantuan appetite has withered slightly, which can only be a good thing as we've mainly got salad on the menu.
Breakfast: Nibbles - ham, cheese, apple, and more ham;
Lunch: A roll from the museum and crisps. Luckily for us (although not our waistlines) he wasn't keen on the blueberry muffin;
Dinner: Veggie pasta sauce made with our remaining passata, courgettes, mini broccoli, onions, tomatoes, garlic and spinach all blitzed together and simmered.
