Food for thought

Strange how my missing LSNED page and the one for the 14th were both cooking related.
On Sunday the 11th we had my daughter round for lunch - along with puppy and boyfriend.  Not to mention our son and his girlfriend too.  Daughter's boyfriend is head chef at a Michelin starred restaurant - can you imagine how worrying it is to have him over for dinner?!  I decided to play it safe and do a traditional Roast Pork dinner, but rather daringly attempted a new recipe I had never tried before for dessert.  Fortunately all turned out well, and we had a lovely family lunch together.
Which kind of leads onto my page for the 14th
The kitchen always looks like a disaster area after I've been cooking in there, I really am the messiest cook ever.  I think it may be too late the change the habits of a lifetime though!
Have a good weekend everyone!

Good for you for being adventurous! Don't you have a rule in your house that whoever cooks does NOT do the clearing up? You need a rest and a martini while the assembled company clean and tidy!

I have a BIL who does all the cooking ... his Mum is a chef and he loves to cook ... how lucky is my sister?! I do like cooking too but would be scared witless if the head chef from a Michelin starred restaurant came for dinner - very well done to you Deb!

Bet you're not as messy as my mum...though she does a great job of clearing up afterwards- and I think you're very brave, cooking for a chef!

Boy that would freak me out. :) I can so totally relate about a mess in the kitchen. How can one meal dirty that much stuff?
