For the last fortnight I’ve been planning our meals in advance. Cooking spontaneously with Jake underfoot was giving me brain freeze. It’s been working, except for the last two nights when I failed to check how long the cooking would take. Monday I spent two hours making a Tuscan Feast. It was gorgeous but dinner wasn’t ready till 9pm. And every recipe I’ve tried from the Food for Thought cookbook has at least one dubious quantity in it. Last night, I spent over an hour making a lentil stew, the leftovers for which made a gorgeous shepherds pie for tonight.
