My blog will be mostly about the thing I love most after my family and that's FOOD.Cooking it,eating it,talking about it,dreaming about it.
Either way it's a great way of expressing yourself.

CRICKET OR FOOD?
These past few days I've been left with a dilemma. The Test match is on at the Oval and I love to watch so that means snacking here and there unless it rains or we have the designated lunch or tea.
Today was a struggle.My wife has been planning all week to go out with some of her girl friends.I ought to point out that Tracey doesn't get out much so this is a bog occasion so she's really been looking forward to it. I've been the supportive husband and she suddenly announced "I need to take a plate of food with me cos we're meeting at Kays house for nibbles and drinks before we go out on the town!"
I racked my brains for something she could easily carry around the corner that would be reasonably filling because you don't really want to be drinking on an empty stomach. I decided on a vegetable quiche which was mainly courgette,onion and sweetcorn and garnished toward the end of cooking with some halved cherry tomatoes, finely diced sweetcorn and a spronkling of cheddar. It looks and smells gorgeous. As for the taste,I'll never know.
I'm 42 and married to Tracey with a gorgeous 23 month old son called Leo who's named after my late Father.I have two great daughters from a previous marriage called Laurenne who's 14 and Danielle who's 13 and they live with their mum in Scunthorpe which is 160 miles away.I don't see the girls as often as I'd like but that's down to financial restraints as much as anything.
