The food side is improving. My resident critic is Ms Juliette “I-don’t-eat-fish-or-eggs-or-tomatoes” Naude. Without prompting she decided to rate every meal I cook for us on a scale of 1 to 10. The cheek of it!
So far the results have been variable, but last night I finally managed an 8!
Chicken stir-fry with lemon sauce – 8
Cottage pie with steamed veg and a cheese sauce – 7,5
Mexican beef in Fajitas – 7,5
Satay pork with Veg – 7
Spaghetti bolognaise – 7
Pork schnitzel in a honey and mustard sauce – 6
Please hold thumbs for the Butter Chicken tonight. Each meal is accompanied by a lettuce (and tomato for me) salad.
I think I will start rating her kitchen cleanliness. That’s the deal, I cook she cleans up afterwards. I do the washing, she hangs up the clothes and I do the ironing. We each make our own beds and tidy our own rooms. She does the vacuuming, I do the other cleaning. She does the rubbish bins (normal and recycling). All very fair.
How’s this for a real “visdorpie”? Snapped while putting in petrol at a Shell today.
The sunset was so awesome last night that Jules insisted that I take photos. Here’s the best of them but the reality was more impressive than this. Canon compensated for the low light level.
