This week’s link is here.
I’ve had my nose well and truly to the grindstone this week! I was thrilled to bits to be asked to do some writing for actual pay and for the last week have been chained to the keyboard wrenching the words from my brain. It has come as something of a surprise to my self-centered loving children not to have me as available as they would prefer, but this strikes me as not altogether a bad thing. They have been fairly vocal in their disappointment (to put it mildly), but their cries have fallen on deaf ears. I was a teenager once and I remember how to do “selfish” and it was quite nice to abdicate all responsibility for dinner on a week night and demand that someone make it for me instead. And someone did! Perhaps I haven’t been the total failure that I thought I was when I wrote this post on the fact that my kids don’t cook.
Now, on top of having to actually work all week, I have a very full weekend coming up as it is WOMAD time here in Adelaide and it is our family tradition to attend as much of it as we can possibly manage, before collapsing – tired, sunburnt and with ringing ears – somewhere quiet with a damp cloth on our heads. Because of these factors my dear, understanding readers, I have failed to give any thought at all as to what to do with the fantastic produce in this weeks Food Connect boxes. So I’ll just tell you what we will be doing with ours.
The gorgeous new seasons apples and pears will be coming to Botanic Park with us this weekend to help offset the cost of buying too much snack food at the very interesting food concessions, as will the refreshing rock melon – cut up and popped into a container, of course. The basil and tomatoes will be chopped and thrown together with some salt and a good slurp of balsamic vinegar and put in another container to be consumed with some crusty bread and cheese at the very same venue. And, if I get away from this keyboard, the spinach will be made into spinach and cheese pastries and refrigerated for a later reheating when we all get home tired, emotional and hungry.
We’ll all have a great weekend and I hope you do too![mc4wp_form id="16750"]
