Today was a day filled with home cooking. For lunch Notsile cooked up some delicious pasta using mature cheddar and Loyd Grossman ‘Al Forno’ (tomato & parmesan with pancetta) sauce, topped with a hint of parsley. The penne was perfectly al dente, and I am definitely going to ask Notsile to teach me the recipe!
For dessert, I had a cup of (non-homemade) chocolate mousse from Waitrose. It was deliciously light and airy, and best of all – it didn’t make my throat itchy! No allergies is always a good thing, and I am definitely putting aside 99p for another 6-pack of these when I finish the current pack!
For snacks I prepared a bowl of cereal and milk. Specifically, Nestlé Honey Cheerios with Vitamin D (aka ‘Whole’) Milk. I love the bowls/plates in the flats, they have the adorable 4-meal design on each of them (breakfast, lunch, supper, dinner). The designs remind me of Lord of the Rings and the scene when Pippin asked about second breakfast!
For dinner Julia made some yummy and filling couscous. I really miss rice so I was glad to have an entire bowl all to myself! For dessert she and Cassia made some chocolate cake (Belgian chocolate, yum!) with whipped cream, and mugs of tea (with a spoonful of sugar for me)!
Overall, the communal dinners are working quite well, and I can’t wait to see what the girls come up with for tomorrow night’s menu!
P.S. Again, the date/time stamps on these pictures are a day late (I probably have my camera settings wrong somewhere).
