I haven’t got long to write this as the illustration above is of my actual supper, a stew I set cooking on the stove at 4pm. It’s ready in about 10 minutes, though food like this, given two hours, and a low flame, is ready whenever you want it; slow, friendly cooking of the sort I like.
I put in heaps of veg, meat, tomatoes, stock (don’t mess about, it’s the taste of childhood you’re after and OXO cubes are the only way to get it).
Dumplings? Naturally, since along with Yorkshire Puddings they are the only carbohydrate worth eating. Not today, though, as someone* has cooked some rice to go with. Never mind. I’m so hungry I don’t care.**
The clocks went back on Saturday, and we’re all astonished by how dark it is. The only thing to do is cook comfort food like this, and embrace hygge living, or whatever the trend is this Autumn.
Forget hygge, I’m hoping for Kysse this Winter, in front of the fire.***

**I do, but I’m keeping it quiet.
***As long as there are dumplings first.
