Enjoying a drop of red.
Spaghetti carbonara, followed by blackberry crumble. Together with a nice bottle of CNP, should be just the thing to watch the match on the haunted fishtank tonight.

Bit of a celebration tonight as the in-laws arrived via a circuitous route from Hungary at our place in Formby yesterday, where they are staying 10 days or so until the delay on the house they're buying over here is sorted out.
We've not seen them in over two years thanks to COVID, so having a posh night out at Bistro Vérité in Southport to mark the occasion. The best bit is that my mother in law doesn't drink, so she gets to drive, woohoo!
Yesterday we had braised steak and roast potatoes, with a few roasted carrots for me. I bunged it all in a casserole dish, smothered it with thick gravy and shoved in on a low heat to slowly reach perfection, took about 4 hours. It was, if I do say so myself, gorgeous. It just fell apart.
Tonight, we're having exactly the same meal. Youngest eats the lot, even the manky trim of fat on the edge
I start a month of nights from tomorrow, so we won't get many chances of having a meal together, he's on nights too.
Yet another steak night, he's getting too used to this here home cooking lark!Had this again tonight, with the same tomorrow. It was by request, and if he's going to eat everything, who am I to say no? It was bloody lovely.
