Well that week flew by! Here are my last pictures
I wouldn't normally bring work home with me but I am responsible for the school newsletter and it goes to print this week so needed proof reading. My line manager is an ex English teacher so is red hot on grammar and spelling and it has to go to her when I think it is ready. She then takes her red pen and picks up all the silly things I've missed! It's 22 pages long this half term and I've been looking at the articles so much now that I need to have a fresh pair of eyes so decided to check it at my leisure.
I don't normally go shopping on a Sunday as there is a part of me that thinks Sundays should be days of relaxation and homely things. But we have a lot of birthdays in the next week and I suddenly realised there was one I had forgotten and needed an emergency dash to buy something I can get in the post tomorrow. We have friends who moved to Belgium and their Sunday laws are really strict. No shops open and you are not allowed to do anything which may be considered a nuisance to your neighbours. No lawn-mowing and no barbecues!
Tried out a new recipe for dinner which called for 100ml of red wine in the sauce. Someone once told me that you should never cook with a wine that you wouldn't use to drink with your meal. So in the interests of quality control, I needed to open the bottle early and have a little taster. Happy to report the wine passed the stringent testing needed :-)
And here's the finished dish. Lamb casserole with roasted garlic and rosemary dumplings. Absolutely delicious and just what we needed on a cold, wet, blustery day like today.
Now I need to decide what to do with the photos I have taken in order to complete the project. Suggestions anyone?
