The sun is out and so is the washing. Hopefully it will dry despite there being little wind, but we are optimistic.
I walked Maggie this morning just after 8am and there was a lovely tantalising smell of bacon when I got back. Now I don’t know about you, but that is one of the most heavenly smells to whet your appetite and wake up your taste buds almost to drooling status.
Unfortunately it was not coming from our house and we had porridge 😦 😦 😦
I haven’t bought bacon for a while now as the quality changed and not only was there more fat per rasher, but they shrank with so much water content. When I was a kid, Mum would do Dad a fry up for breakfast at the weekend. He liked his bacon crisp and I remember being given the rind to suck on. Happy memories.
Bacon was always for breakfast when I was younger, but with rising costs, it soon became the basis of a main meal of the day packed out with tatty cake, hash browns or chips, beans, tomatoes, sausage, black pudding, fried eggs, mushrooms and fried bread.
Just had a text message from SIL to let us know Other Brother has had his knee op. I will put a card in the post to him as this is a first………. her to contact us.
Not much on the agenda today. Lunch is cottage pie and I am going to experiment by making veg patties for Hubby. He managed some chicken yesterday so another solid in small amounts he can tolerate. He’s put on two pounds this week.
