A family favourite, made even more special by the recipe being from Euan’s original early 1980s Sesame Street Annual.
We’ve had an excellent harvest from our apple trees this year. I’m still frantically trying to figure out what to do with them all.
One of Auri’s favourite foods is pasta with passata (or “melted tomato”, as Auri calls it) and cheese. This evening, we made it together.
Here’s a photo of Auri yesterday looking angelic as she cuts some cucumber with Euan using her new safety knife. I like looking at photos like this when she’s being a hellchild, like she has been tonight. It helps remind me that, most of the time, she’s pretty great company.
I mean, honestly.
After the last two (three, four) years, it seems strange to actually have a social life again. Last night, we went round to dinner at a friend’s house, today I got the train to Blair Atholl for dinner with friends (while Auri and Euan had a splendid time at an afternoon party), and this evening two other friends arrived to stay the night. A marvellous weekend of all good things – and still two more days to go! And it felt good to be on a train again.
