Today it is rainy and cold and two of my children are ill at home with colds.
So I turn to this book to make them better.
First off is Banana bread.
I get the receipe
and the sugar
the flour in the mixer
and the tin
and put them together to make this.
Cooking is like alchemy.
Tonight we will have chickenoodle soup.
When the weather is like this we have to hunker down and wait till it gets better.
(I love the word hunker. Kathleen Jamie uses it a lot in this book which I like alot).
