'Stop losing weight!' Ric yelled at me across the counter in Zac's. 'You're looking - the word that springs to mind is gaunt.'
'I do not look gaunt,' I must have shouted back at him as several people stopped what they were doing and turned to stare.
'You tell her,' Ric appealed to Sean (but not a lot). 'She'll listen to you.'
Sean looked at Ric and then at me with his eyebrows raised as if to say, 'You really think so?'
Anyway Ric will be pleased to hear that I have been taking the advice of my granny and other old wives and feeding a cold.
As we're regularly in Devon on Wednesday and Thursday now with the aim of looking after GrandDaughter so Daughter, who is an award-winning freelance copywriter, can get back to working more hours, we've agreed that I'll plan and prepare Wednesday night dinner so she can concentrate on writing. As a result I've been having fun browsing for good vegetarian recipes. My first attempt was spinach and ricotta gnocchi with a rich tomato sauce, served with rocket and freshly grated parmesan.It was very nice - GrandDaughter liked it - but could perhaps have done with a little more seasoning (but not if GrandDaughter's going to be eating it).
