I could just call it being lazy, but it sounds better if I say I have been on holiday!
I am once again house and pet sitting for one of my brothers and his wife, while they are away on a road trip, and decided to have a thoroughly lazy weekend.
I made a special trip to the supermarket on Friday and came home with enough ready-made meals to last me the whole weekend.
This smoked salmon salad was what I had for dinner last night (tonight it will be roast beef and veggies, Friday night was a mince potato-top pie).
Not all my food has been “healthy” – I also bought Mallowpuff (chocolate and marshmallow) biscuits and a couple of small microwaveable chocolate steam puddings.
Mandarins are healthy though! The Satsumas are now in the stores and I love their juicy sweetness and the way they are so easy to peel, although later in the season they are inclined to lose their sweetness – that is when it is time to switch to the normal mandarins.
The last few days have been full of fog and drizzle, so I have chosen a cheerful picture to remind me that summer is never too far away.
