So, the new student arrived and seems a lovely girl. DD1 had to feed and entertain her last night as I was rushing off to my yoga class, but they seemed to get on like a house on fire. I had pre-prepared the veg so all my daughter had to do was cook some chicken to go with it. I had also made an apple crumble the day before, so dessert was sorted.
I tend to use Sunday as my prepare ahead day. When I chop the veg for the meal I tend to do extra for the following day to save time. I need to be prepared as my Mondays are always manic !
Dinner is usually something like a casserole in the slow cooker, so I can grab a bowlful before I shoot off to class. Last night it was cereal as I got stuck in traffic so had to bolt it. Tonight will be a more leisurely affair, and I will have the chance to eat and chat with the student. I will make chilli and tacos with salad – this always seems to go down well with everybody.
We had a hilarious conversation over lunch as one of the girls has bought an old car with a cassette player in it so had therefore been scouring the charity shops to find cassettes to play on it. We were reminiscing about making mixed tapes and taping songs from the radio, and having to wait whilst you rewound he whole thing to the beginning. You have to be of a certain vintage to appreciate the whole cassette thing, which I am!
Anyone else remember cassettes?
