July 30, 2012

It’s been a long day. Very long. Too long. The weather wasn’t great – it was too cold for July and there were too many sharp showers. I’m a little tired of the whole thing.

I’m also tired of Waste Strategies and Waste Plans and SPDs and Uniform and Mediation and Meetings.

Enough! I ought to be painting (or concentrating on Arlo – who’s in a world of his own most of the time) –  and thinking  about what to cook for dinner, especially as I’m being host to meat eaters who probably weren’t expecting to be placed in a vegetarian household…

The answer is probably tomatoes (and home grown garlic). Summer food, definitely – so they score well on the weather index, and the beloved has grown basil! And there’s marjoram (just like oregano, also courtesy of the beloved) in the garden.  Chuck them in at the last minute and you have a  marriage made in heaven.

All you need is pasta.

Why bother with anything else?  A bit of bread perhaps…and cheese….and something green….maybe a glass of wine?

Maybe things are looking up…
