A lethargy descended upon me after my Spa day on Friday and it hasn#t altogether lifted yet. After a large lunch at our usual place today, I have come home and am trying hard to type this without falling into a deep sleep.
I had to nip into town this morning as I have a very busy day tomorrow and was going to run out of mince pies (no I don't bake them this year). It is my turn to host our Book Club in the morning (my cleaner is coming early - at 8.30am - so that she can be finished before they arrive at 10.15) and straight after lunch other friends are calling to see me and to look round the bungalow. In the evening I intend to make my red cabbage dish for Boxing Day and when it is cooked and cooled I shall freeze it.
This may well be the last year I cater for a Boxing Day party. I love to have them all but whether I can cope with them all remains to be seen. Time will tell - certainly the freezer is bursting with food. My main worry is that I have only used my electric fan oven once after twenty years of using an Aga. It can't be that difficult can it?
Today we have all four friends been out to Sunday lunch as usual - and delicious as usual. I had one of the starters as a Main Course - Salmon Goujons with sweet chilli sauce, served with chips and a good salad and I followed this with a delicious Christmas Pudding with brandy sauce. Indulgent.
I came home, immediately took Tess round the block and now intend to sit quietly and relax. Hope you are able to do the same.
