I am pleased to report that I am alive and well this morning and able to write an entry in my blog. Why you may wonder is this noteworthy? Well, last night as it was Valentines Day I volunteered to cook our evening meal. From fresh ingredients I hasten to add and not from a packet. I made a leek, tarragon and mushroom risotto and Susan ate it all and I can report that Susan too is feeling fine this morning. The only problem is that I will now probably be expected to contribute more in the kitchen than I have in the past where my “assistance” has normally been limited to chopping up and clearing up.
