Today is Sunday 17th May

Good morning all, and yes, I have surfaced early this morning. Nothing to do with the dog who slept through until 6, just up, showered and breakfasted, all before 8am!

It is warm and sunny-ish as the yellow orb is playing hide and seek through clouds, but saying that, the day holds promise.
Hubby was up earlier than me and apparently there were two ducks on our lawn. Word may have got around, but they didn’t get fed.

No plans today, and dinner is a mystery as the jury’s out because we can’t decide. Hubby quite fancied a McCheese, then thought of the fat content and changed his mind. As I hadn’t taken anything out of the freezer, next suggestion was jacket spud, tuna and mixed veg. All tempting until I saw the pathetic marbles in the veg rack all of which were starting to sprout, so hey…………. more spuds to plant!
I haven’t done a vegetable lasagna for a while, but that was cheese again so thoughts sort of drifted towards a vegetable curry. Hm. Nothing ‘meaty’ other than carrots to go in that and somehow carrot curry doesn’t hold much appeal.  Good standby then is fish for Hubby and a pasta bake for me, but we had that a couple of days ago. At the moment an old budget favourite is currently in the lead, which is beans on toast with an egg on the top. Talk about pushing the boat out and living the high life.

I used to hate Sundays in Days before Hubby as I spent nearly all of it in the kitchen. If I wasn’t baking, I was preparing a meal or washing up after one. I can’t remember the last time I did a traditional roast. Roasties and yorkshires out of the freezer don’t really count, but unless we’re expecting visitors (big joke as we don’t have any) it’s not really practical for the two of us. When I was working, Hubby didn’t think it was fair to spend all of Sunday morning cooking dinner when we could be out for a drive and relaxing.

Hope you all have a smashing day wherever you are and whatever you’re doing.
Keep safe

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I love Baked Beans on toast with an egg on top. My eldest, a vegetarian , loves that he also swears by adding curry powder to the baked beans 💜

    Have a nice Sunday Di. Baked beans on toast with an egg on top would get my vote. Veggies seem so hard to get at the moment.

    I know how you feel. I am getting tired of figuring out what to eat, cooking and eating. Nothing holds much appeal at the moment.

    • We settled on beans and the egg in the end followed by ice cream. Now is the time to chose our final meal of the day and I honestly can’t be bothered so may well opt for a bowl of cereal and yogurt. Hubby is going to have soup and whatever else he fancies to nibble until 6pm.

    I’m going to have to get doing that, baked beans with egg on top. I can’t remember the last time I done that.
    My other favourite is baked beans on top of cheese too.
