I spent the whole day in the kitchen today. Making food, and then more food, and then prepping some more. Because this weekend is a Brit Bee Weekend. We are gathering just south of the Peak District to spend the weekend sewing, talking and eating. Unfortunately there will be some notable and much missed absentees. It won't be the same without them. Life throws some curve balls at people that are totally not deserved at times. Just saying.
But today was about me aiding and abetting the eating part of the weekend.
I've made a meat and a vegetarian filling for fresh Vietnamese spring rolls.
Sausage rolls, and little mini twice baked potatoes in three versions - the works, vegetarian and non-onion versions. The potatoes will be finished in the oven once we are there.
Needless to say there is a big tray of flapjacks too.
Additionally, I have a bowl full of teriyaki chicken marinating which will be grilled tomorrow before departure. And lots of fresh veggies to grill and then throw in a simple marinade too. Maybe a cake if time allows.
I've not packed, nor considered which sewing projects to bring. But we won't starve so as per usual my priorities are with my stomach. Why can't I lose weight? Why?!
