I believe I am a good cook, I know I am female and therefore can (and frequently do) multi-task successfully, but this morning didn't go to plan.
David is still not feeling 100% fit so decided to have a lie in this morning. I was creeping round the house quietly trying not to disturb him. We have lots of salad leaves and tomatoes in the fridge so I decided we'd have salad for lunch - not David's favourite meal (rabbit food as he describes it) so I usually have to add lots of 'proper' food to stop him complaining. I decided to hardboil some eggs to go with the tuna and cheese to make the green stuff more palatable for him.
I put the eggs on to boil then started polishing furniture, emptying the dishwasher and checking/answering emails. 30 minutes later when I remembered the eggs, the saucepan had boiled dry and the kitchen reeked of burning eggs/metal!
Despite opening doors and windows downstairs, the nasty burnt smell drifted up to the bedrooms so I couldn't get away with it
But I've warned David, if he ever tells anybody his wife can't even boil an egg ...... he'll be eating Tesco horseburgers forever more and will have to cook them himself!!
We're having turkey fajitas tonight .... I'll have to redeem myself on the culinary front methinks! The turkey has been marinading for an hour so they'll be tasty - just need to make the salsa and I'm all set!
More progress on the family group portrait ....
and I just found out that the local art auction (to which I donated a picture) made the grand sum of £8,000 for the charity which organised it. Quite a successful evening for them methinks.
