I'm serious - I've started wearing gumboots (ok, cute ones but still gumboots) to work because I can't stand having cold, wet feet all day. It's impossible to get a park at my nearest shopping centre, I'm wary of taking the baby anywhere and the cat is constantly trying to get on my lap in all his wet-fur glory.
Therefore, when I looked for inspiration for dinners this week I didn't pull out a February issue of any food magazine, I picked July. All the comfort food for winter.
I bet after all that effort the rain will go away and it will be terribly hot and I'll cry into my risotto. Aw hell, any weather is risotto weather if you're me.
Lots of baking in this one, which I love because it makes everything so, so easy! I can sit down for a minute while it cooks. One lazy dinner of burritos that I may or may not fob off onto Veggie Dad to make. Everything makes good leftovers, so work lunches are sorted!
note to self: don't photograph lined paper.
Kid dinners this week will include pasta with peas and cheese, and veggie congee. We're going to try and give her the spoon more often to learn how to use it. She's mostly self-fed but dinners usually stray into us feeding her territory. I'm pretty sure early spoon skills are going to be very, very helpful when VB 2.0 arrives.
Lunchbox treat will be apple tea cake, I think. Yum.
