Well as you might have seen already, Saturday was one bit high note, but it didn't stop when I got home.
All week I had been wanting to eat Bacon and Onion Pudding. This is an old recipe that Mrs RC's grandmother introduced me to. She was a great woman and is Mrs RC's role model. The first time I met her she brought out 3 types of cake, urging me to eat as many as I wanted - "You've travelled a long way, you must be starving!" So I chomped away on these wonderful cakes, eating so many that I wasn't particularly hungry when she declared it was dinner time, and served up bacon and onion pudding, mashed potatoes, etc. But it was so wonderful I ate that too.
Anyway, guess what? Mrs RC had made me Bacon and Onion Pudding for dinner when I got home on Saturday! Slices of bacon and onion, rolled into a sausage shape of suet dough and then steamed for around 3 hours. I just had the last slice for dinner at work. Fantastic.
Sunday was another good day. A few weeks ago my dad decided that he did not want to watch TV any more. Of course, he couldn't just leave it in the corner until he wants to switch it on again, he got rid of everything except the satellite dish that is luckly bolted to the outside of his house. But we (OK, Mrs RC) had the foresite to rescue the vital stuff, knowing that sooner or later he would want a TV again.
Yesterday he declared that he had bought a second hand TV and was having trouble making it work. So I grabbed the bag of "vital stuff", popped down and within no time he was up and running again. Queue Bill and Ted style air-guitar celebration.
Monday has been good so far too - a cold, foggy day, but still very enjoyable in its way.
Have a great day!
