We were up bright and early this morning to make our weekly trip to the Central Market. The stallholders are usually still arranging their fruit and vegetables when we get there. We're lucky that the place we have breakfast at is open so early, most of the other cafes are still closed. We usually have a coffee first and read the paper then have breakfast a bit later on. The vibe in the market is different on a Friday morning compared to a Saturday, it seems more laid back somehow. Saturday morning is all hustle and bustle.
I went through my list quite quickly and we were on our way home by 9 o'clock making a side trip to the library before getting home to pack everything away. I've started planning my menus again, I've just been winging it for the last 2 months. This weekend we're having chicken curry, if I'm in the mood I might make parathas to go with it. I'm looking forward to trying the curry recipe out, I think it is one I used to make about 15 years ago, but I lost the recipe with the exact spices and proportions, and haven't been able to recreate it, so every now and then I trawl the web looking for recipes by a particular cookery writer and I think this is it. I'm also going to make an apple strudel and some leek and mushroom calzone that I saw on The Cook and The Chef on Wednesday. That should keep me busy on the cooking side of things.
Planted some seeds yesterday - tomato, eggplant, zucchini and beans, they are sitting out in the back area in the seed raiser, right near the clothes line where I won't forget about them. I think that the rest of the potatoes can be planted as well, the first ones I planted don't seem to be doing anything much yet.
I'm going to finish off the seat covers I started last weekend and do some more quilting plus of course all the usual mundane things that have to be done - like cleaning and vacuuming and washing.
