My eldest just phoned me from work with what he called a professional question. Did I know what forcemeat was? As he is a chef, I was surprised he did not know what this is but it is nice to know I can still offer him welcome advice, sometimes. I used to have a huge 100 year old recipe book but when he went to live in Italy, for a while, he took it with him and left it there. It is quite safe but I do miss reading those old recipes, which had the original costing to accompany the dishes. There were no photos, just plates, copied from paintings of the food.
The weather is warmish and damp here. Wendell leaves trails of sand on the carpet, when we return from our jaunts to the beach.
We got our money today and I am enjoying a cigarette as I type….bliss. Off to do the Tesco run now, see ya, Pen.
