The smoke detector operated on Saturday lunch time and I reported to my guests "it is real!" I had turned the chicken and meat sauces up high instead of turning it down!
The place is filled with smoke again today! French bread toast for croutons in the squash and sweetcorn soup were a little "over cooked"!
The reason for all this is because the BEST MATE is not very well and so the cooking is all down to me. I think that I am a little distracted at times and not quite concentrating on the task in hand. It is at these times that I realise how much I depend on her. When one of us is not functioning properly it is very evident in the results.
Thank goodness I have a smoke detector to tell me when things are cooked.
