Old Mother Hubburd..

Went to the cupboard....
The trouble with the temporary move back into our cottage is that there is nothing in the larder, all has been removed to our REAL home, Caxton. So whilst I wander the aisles of Tesco's looking for some delicacy to feed us with I have to consider that there is no stock of spices or herbs to flavour or embellish any dish - the first few days we didn't even have salt! I have bought fresh herbs of course but I am holding out until the weekend when we return to Caxton then I can raid the on board larder for the spices. The Thai curried tofu has had to give way to macaroni cheese; at least for this week.

That was the problem we had when we first 'moved' onto Indigo Dream - no spices! Mind you, the boat would need to be stretched to accommodate the stock of staples that I keep in my home kitchen!

Why you keep staples in the kitchen and not in desk drawer - well I thought it was funny but then I am so so sad...

No, you really are funny! I laughed anyway :-) Why else do you think you have such a devoted readership!
