Congratulations and busy in the kitchen
Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex
on the birth of their little boy.
Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
And now I am used to the name I think it is really cool.
A couple of weeks ago middle daughter came to me and said,
"Steve has given me this giant marrow and my lot won't eat it, do you want it?" So I said yes, it would be great for the Friday Light meal in a couple of weeks.
Once a month I am on KP (more commonly known as kitchen duty) for Friday Light, at my church. Friday Light is a community outreach which, among other things, provides a hot meal free of charge for those who come along. We get about 25 regulars with others dropping in at times so I usually prep for about 30.
Once upon a time I cooked a meat dish but I've been relieved
of that duty and now all I need to do is provide a vege or some
sort of side dish to go with the meat.
Well the marrow turned into a more substantial type of squash whilst in transit. It is half a metre long and half a metre in circumference! I've used about a third of it.
I really wasn't sure what to do with it so it has been cut and layered in a roasting dish and covered with onion and tomatoes and I'm hoping it will taste okay tomorrow night. Now all I have to do is prepare a large pot of potatoes.
