Magnum

MagnumMuch as I fancy an ice cream this evening, the only Magnum on offer is this one.

We are having a celebratory weekend, by reason of the letter from the bank which says that come Monday, our house is all [i]ours.[/i] 

It has been a long, hard road made punishing by our personal choices. The achievement is actually remarkable, given the facts of our situation.

[b]We done well.[/b]

There will be a 3 course celebratory meal tomorrow, the last course  of which will be Mr L’s new party piece: the “[url=http://www.ottolenghi.co.uk/champagne-and-saffron-jelly-with-cardamom-shortbread-shop]Champagne” Jelly[/url].

In this case, Champagne will be substituted for by Prosecco; this Magnum of which came free with our Christmas order from Naked Wine.

Mr L made the jelly this evening and we polished off the remainder of the magnum with our [i]Risotto ai gamberetti,[/i] which was proper tasty.

Tomorrow there will be genuine Champagne because it really is a happening worth celebrating properly.

No, you can’t come. Sorry.

Don’t expect the photos to come out straight.

Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
