The Boy is in Lima. The Gherkin had her dinner and is asleep in her crib. The cat had her dinner and ran away. The house is quiet and peaceful and I am taking it all in. The cocktail I just made up (one part Bacardi Limon+one part vermouth+ dash of Flädersaft) is definitely contributing to this zen like state. I am actually quite thrilled with myself. The Bacardi Limon was a disaster of a purchase and we have been trying to use it up as fast as we can. But since it is practically undrinkable, the only way to use it up so far has been to cook with it. Not anymore.
And here is last week's soup - Matar Shorba. It tasted as blah as it looks, definitely not a keeper.
