At my table, earlier today, you would have found an assortment of paint tins, brushes and rollers. By this evening, with most of the painting done, it was cleared in order to have two friends join me for dinner.
Something simple. Something from the store cupboard.
Marcella Hazan’s ‘Risotto with Porcini Mushrooms’. The usual great deal of stirring involved – but made a little easier by strengthened hand muscles from days of painting walls and ceilings.
We spoke of holidays – ideal and not so ideal. We spoke of holidays in Rome – and ceilings painted with a little more ‘flair’ than mine.
Tonight: #15 ‘Risotto with Porcini Mushrooms’ with Dermot and Bridget at my table.
