Last night I went to see a screening of @amberlightfilm . A gorgeous film from @davebroomwhisky  and @adammpark . A documentary about whisky and Scotland that is all heart and people and landscape and joy. It will be on limited release later this year and at selected festivals.

Red lentil casarecce with courgettes, chilli and dulse seaweed. The pasta has a silky egg yolk jacket. Not sold on the red lentil pasta (first try) but I love the flavours generally. I cooked the pasta in some dashi that I made yesterday 🥰

Leftover sauce from spiced coconut ribs met prawns, kaffir lime leaves and curry leaves made a fab 5 minute supper. This is the joy of cooking for me - working with what you have and making something fabulous 🥰

Dorothy Byrne’s MacTaggart Speech is a blistering and often hilarious read. Essential reading if you live in the UK.

Spiced coconut ribs. Just the ribs cut off a piece of pork belly (which I marinated in a miso marinade separately & which became part of a sublime miso soup). I also made crackling which I have other plans for! One piece of meat. 3 recipes. 3 very good things to eat. 🐽🐽🐽

Does anyone else have a MacBook that constantly disconnects from WiFi? I have googled and cleared out all previous WiFi connections etc which fixed very temporarily. It is driving me crazy!

Good sleep hygiene. I don’t have it. I don’t want it. I know I need it. 🤣 (I am working on it)

Maiden hair voyage had matching shoes 🤣

A change is as good as a rest! (That is not true. Very few things are as good as a rest).

So Nigel Farage has been nominated for @TIME  magazine person of the year? Hitler was Time Man of the Year in 1938

What is wrong with you people? That was rape and he is a paedophile. Stop sanitising his crimes.

This puts everything in perspective. Soldiers from WW1 mapped. 4 dead on my small street and over 50 in the immediate neighbourhood. All so young. Such a travesty.

If in Paris, mark yourself or friends safe on Facebook to quickly let people know.

“the fraud of authenticity, which is more interested in the aesthetics of poverty than in poverty itself, more invested in the feeling of realness than in any kind of truth.”

This film from the about the Tuam babies is beautifully put together, very moving and well worth your time. How the Catholic Church Hid Away Hundreds of Irish Children #PopeInIreland  #Stand4Truth 

Chefs and food writers! What are the things that you think home cooks cook incorrectly at home? Mine: not salting pasta water, not bringing meat to room temperature. For a thing!
