A very bleak Saturday with grey skies and rain. My only outing this morning was to do the groceries. It can be tricky holding the umbrella whilst loading up the car with groceries. I try and avoid getting my hair wet, as it is curly and goes slightly (I think more than slightly) wild looking after it gets wet. It is almost impossible to control curly hair when there is moisture in the air. It has a mind of its own.
Once home I decide the best thing to do in the rain (I wasn't in the rain of course!) was to cook, so I made:
- Beef and red wine casserole (which I will freeze - enough for 2 meals)
- Lamb shank casserole (which I will also freeze to eat later in the week)
- Lamb and tomato masala (a spicy Indian type disk) - which we are having tonight for dinner
- Creamy rice pudding (mmmmm, so delicious - for dessert)
Whilst these meals were cooking I watch part of a DVD and then fell alseep whilst listening to some beautiful classical music (cello). Once I have finished writing this, I am off to have a cup of Jasmine tea and read for a while.
Is there a nicer way to spend a rainy Saturday?
