friday


It's been a busy day. Best cocoa brownies in the oven, first thing  Pilates. Take mother shopping and drop her off to visit her sister,  Market. Back to make rock cakes, chocolate cake, apple and pear cakes. Masses of washing up. Fairy cakes to make yet. So it doesn't seem unreasonable to ask him to make supper even though he had to walk a long way when the DLR was stopped because of...well, let's not worry about that.

And here is the menu: cheese and pickle sandwiches and a glass of cider. Sourdough loaf bought today, extortionate price, must get on and make some myself. Supermarket cheddar,  Last year's glutney from the cellar.

And now a quandary: what would I have for my last ever meal, if I had a choice that is?  It's either the broccoli, anchovy, tomato pasta; cheese on toast; or today's front-runner, the cheese and pickle sourdough sandwich with the cidre du jour, currently Wyld Wood Organic.

I am replete.

Now for those fairy cakes.

So essentially that's a ploughman's ... nothing beats it! (Writes the girl from Somerset cider country ;) )

Yes, I quite often (too often) think that if I could only eat a single meal for the rest of my life it would be bread and cheese. But really I should stop thinking about it.

Baked potato, butter, grated cheese. I am a simple soul!

I'd swap out the sourdough for a nice nutty granary, cut in wonky slices of course and thickly buttered, after all if it's your last meal who cares about the cholesterol! Probably would waver between a million different types of cheese but it would have to be slathered with homemade spicy apple chutney to cut through the dairy stuff and make a lovely tangy contrast. Oh crap, I'm hungry now!

That's a lot of cake! If we're talking one last snack, it'd have to be a cheese board with water biscuits and a curried fruit chutney or maybe a heaped serving of bread and butter pud or a bag of freshly fried chips. If it's a final blow-out, then it has to be the Christmas dinner we have here every year. Cooked by someone else, of course.

Mary Berry's fish pie with a cheesy topping would make a great last meal. Loved the recipe for those brownies.

Thick slices of sourdough bread, generously buttered, topped with rough-cut chunks of cheese. The chutney is an excellent addition - this may be a weekend breakfast in the making! (Also, the carrot cake WAS amazing.)
