A wet Sunday, and thoughts turn to food. Good hearty food, just because it’s wet. So I was busy in the kitchen earlier today getting things ready for tonight’s meal. Meatloaf is on the menu – haven’t made one of those for a while. This will be served with roast vegetables and yummy gravy, not forgetting the greens. And for dessert I have prepared a rhubarb and apple crumble. I like to plan ahead so when cooking time comes around, everything is ready to pop into the oven.
I’ve done a little sewing too, just a bit by hand. A parcel arrived in my mail box last week from Carol in South Dakota, and inside was a pretty new thread catcher to use while sewing. This needed a little weighted bag popped inside to keep it in place on the table (or wherever it is used) and Carol had thoughtfully included a bag to be filled. Visions of rice falling everywhere all over the floor while I tried to fill the tiny bag persuaded me that this should be a two person job and that I needed a little help. Robin held the top of the bag tightly closed as I quickly stitched the seam together with a needle and thread. There – job done with hardly any mess at all!
