The dog vomited. My digital kitchen scales stopped working and then, my washing machine blew up. It caught fire, it's totally kaput. I think the universe was telling me something and I so I didn't sew as I had planned to and I steered clear of the shops. I had a mini-breakdown and then I got a grip.
This is a bad day - but really in the scheme of things - it's not the end of the world. Things have a way of working themselves out - leave it to fate.
I got pounding steaks (I'll share the recipe for that later, promise) and my frustrations were expelled and my steaks were lovely and tender. I decided to make smashed potato bake. Not only easy but you can be a bit savage!
Food saves the day every time!
1.2 kg coliban potatoes, steamed or boiled until soft
50g shaved champagne ham
50g tasty cheese, finely grated
Preheat oven to 200 degrees c
Cut your potatoes in half before or after boiling/steaming and place in a shallow greased dish skin intact. Smash down the potatoes with a fork, keeping it a bit rough.
Bake for 20 minutes or until crispy on top.
It's so good and not a lot of effort - brilliant for a small family or entertaining a horde, especially in this cold weather.
How do you vent your frustrations? Chopping wood? Call a friend? Write?
