I know some people love to go out on a Sunday, but not me. My perfect Sunday is slow and gentle. It ideally involves never getting in the car at all. In fact, ideally I leave the house for nothing other than an extra long dog walk through the nearby fields and woods.
My perfect Sunday starts at the kitchen table with piles of books and all the coffee. Then that long walk in the countryside and back home to begin the sort of cooking that Sundays lend themselves too. Slow pottering, roasting, peeling, simmering. Nothing hurried. Food that is as pleasureable to prepare as it is eat.
And we never eat Sunday lunch at lunchtime it’s more of a Linner. A happy combination of lunch and dinner. To be eaten at 4ish or so.
This sort of kitchen tinkering requires a cocktail to replace the normal afternoon cup of tea and happily my Technical Advisor Mr L is pretty handy in the cocktail department.
This hot toddy was a definite win, in fact it almost makes me wish winter could last a little longer.
