Roast Dinner, a seriously undervalued treat!
I love food, most of us do, I like food that packs distinctive, or traditional flavor, delivers that hmm hmm response, makes you eat too fast, while looking for ‘seconds’.
I recently discovered a new friend, across many aspects of my life chart this friend either mirrors my values or presents a variation that I can live with. What I liked most about this friend is the willingness to care. No questions asked, just an instinct to care. Following what I have been through of late, this was a refreshing and much-needed experience.
Meal one; I was offered Chicken Thai Green Curry, not out of the pack or tin, but hand prepared and served. The next meal was a Full English breakfast, again served with TLC. The last meal was yes, the eternal English Sunday Roast… beef, roast potatoes, asparagus, yorkshire pudding, gravy, carrots etc.
Now I like to cook, those of you who know me know this, but the fact is, it has been a long time since I was served three wonderful meals with delicious full-bodied red wine, with open-hearted commitment and fine company.
It is the simple things in life that often make the biggest impression on me. It is the simple things in life that are propelled into the realms of negative drama that has the opposite effect.
