Heading home today and so, as we have to clean & tidy the carnage that we’ve created here over the last few days, I always make pasta & pesto as our parting lunch. It’s from a jar so leaves very little washing up to do. On a day when time is precious, I can definitely think of better things to be doing rather than ‘slaving over a hot stove’, as Mum would say.
“What have we got for lunch today?” My son, Zephy enquired.
“Pasta & pesto.” I informed him.
“Ooh..” He groaned.
“Why, what’s wrong with pasta & pesto?” I asked.
“It’s just that we always have pasta & pesto and I would prefer a different pasta like…” He thought for a minute before saying; “…carbonara or something.”
“Your wish is my command.” I said.
I do like to be given ideas of what to eat. I might not always take them up but day-in-day-out I get tired of thinking about what to make. It’s nice to have a helping hand.
I made this one with crème fraiche & whole grain mustard. Everyone was pleased. 🙂
