I was telling MS that when I was a boy chili con carne was the height of fashion along with spaghetti Bolognese and vol au vents. MM was an early adopter to cooking something other than the ‘meat & two veg’ that she had been brought up on.
“Was it like gold?” He asked.
“Kind of…” I said with a confused look on my face. “…what did you think of it?
“It’s ok but pizza is better…No, no, what I really want to say is it’s hot!, with an exclamation mark at the end.”
We had strawberries for dessert, from Huelva.
