I wanted...I bought...I made

Riso gallo pronto - dinner in 20 minutes!

Am out for the day Saturday so thinking supper needs to be simple - perhaps fish - some lamb chops from the freezer with hot veg. Sunday I am ecstatic to say we have a reservation for lunch at Dinner, Heston Blumenthal's new restaurant. Thinking the following dinner will be minimal - a small amount of salami and toast. Monday we are out, Tuesday I think some risotto would be nice made venison faggots with venison liver that was gifted me by Jon and Marie, served up with mashed swede and cabbage, even better than the ones made with pig liver, Wednesday the rest of the lamb stew made a brilliant risotto with riso gallo quick cook risotto with porcini worked a treat with added chicken and the lot cooked in stock, Thursday pasta had the rest of the lamb stew with mash and Friday omelette and salad skate wings with leeks and new potatoes. Easy peasy.

Quiet at Borough - Charlie is back at the Ginger Pig complete with suntan from a couple of weeks in Sydney - least he got lucky with sunshine. Only bought some pork mince - £4.30

Espresso beans from Monmouth - £10

Went to the new game dealer, wanting venison and hoping for pork scratchings. My wants met, hope remains unsated £8.50

Loitered by the Essex fish stall for a couple of minutes but there was no one serving so I wandered off, fish free

A dozen eggs this week from Wild Beef - £3

A lovely crumbly piece of toma from Gastronomica - £6.50

Milk and yoghurt from Neals Yard - £4.90

Thought about bread from Flour Power but they had run out of small loaves and I still had half a rye loaf so decided to try for bread at Oval from the Old Post Office people instead

Bought veg locally on Brixton Road and a lovely bunch of muscat grapes

Spent £37.20
