Sipping once, sipping twice
Oh gosh, the weather is so horrible today. In Brighton it’s rain rain rain. Apparently the rain started at midday yesterday and won’t stop for 28hrs. Yuck! Last week I cooked up a big batch of soup – and this weather is definitely right for staying tucked up in the kitchen, with the warmth of a big pot bubbling away.
I followed this recipe from Bleubird, and it tasted great! I think I overdid the lentils a little bit – I would add some more liquid next time I make it, but the flavour was really yummy. I added a squeeze of lemon juice, too. I had it for lunch, but I think it would work great as an evening meal – with thick slices of freshly made bread, and a sharp, acidic salad on the side.
Today I think will be a completely lazy day – I’m still in bed, and although I have had a shower I’m back in an oversized t-shirt, tucked up in bed with Trout and Rasputin, and can’t really see this changing. This is what Sundays are made for. Yesterday was a really long and lovely day, which began with very little sleep, involved a road-trip, good food, art, the sea, a great dane, football, long conversations, sweet friends and a burlesque dancer. I’ll put together a blogpost on that another time, though.
How is your weekend going?
