A debate ensued around our kitchen table last night. The logistics of the weekend camping trip and all the factors that prevented me from going along:
A babysitter for frail mother-in-law, who needs to be ferried to shops and church;
A dogsitter for Lulubelle and Diski;
The tight deadline on my current project.
It’s been decided that father and daughter will go without me, for Saturday night only. I’m slightly sad … but the subject matter (genocide) of the book I am editing makes solitude a better working environment and I should be able to get a lot done.
That said, the week lies ahead and people need to be fed. I have decided to practise Tandy’s challenge of last week every Tuesday:
Make a pasta dish using 5 ingredients. These 5 ingredients do not include the pasta, olive oil or seasoning but you have to use 5!
Ergo, tonight is pasta night and here are my five ingredients (I will serve with fusilli pasta):
Seasoning: salt, pepper and Dijon mustard.
