Been cooking up a storm the last few days. Made chocolate chunk cookies on Thursday. Then a fresh white loaf, Turkish red lentil soup and roasted aubergine yesterday, and a smoked mackerel and rice dish with peas, curried crème fraiche and peas today. Paul made spinach and green bean fritters and soya bean, spring green and mushroom curry with brown rice. Jake’s been trying all of it. So far, my white loaf is his favourite. And the cookies of course. One thing to look forward to post-stoma is being able to make him oatmeal cookies with raisins, among other things.
