On top of it all, my PC caved in on me. I received an email from a trusted source (a very trusted source, namely my beloved daughter and partner in the business!) and it made my entire MS Outlook “hang”. To “freeze”. To flippen do nothing and go nowhere! Eventually two computer geeks got it going but she is still cranky and grumpy … like me!
So I decided enough already – this weekend will be decadence de lux by having a long snuggle-in tomorrow morning instead of facing my PC at 4 am or earlier. From there I will dress myself nicely (not in black director/producer’s clobber) and instead of shoving a list of basics into Ya Ya Sister’s hands to get at Spar or Fruit & Veg, I will find my leisurely way to the local farmer’s market. There I will handsomely invest in my sanity and bring home a string-bag full of small brown packages from heaven. And then darlings, I will lay it all out before me and one mouthful at a time, slowly and in silence, still my hunger for food made with love.
And the personal decadence starts with sharing a very nicely decadent recipe with you because blogging is my idea of personal pleasure – or decadence, if you will. This recipe requires a bit of cooking though – you cannot get it all ready-to-eat from your local market! Sarie! And in spite of the expense of the scallops, this dish is so divine that you may want to splash out and invest in this for high days like St Valentine’s or your first date with the person of your dreams … because this is my idea of food for love – food made with love. Even if it’s dinner (or a starter) for one. To my mind, the magic ingredient in food is love. Amen and finish and klaar.
Have a good one!
