I'd planned to do ratatouille and pasta for dinner but my aubergine had gone soggy (and we all know there's nothing worse than a soggy aubergine) so I offered Husband a choice from butternut squash soup, macaroni cheese and beans on toast. He grumbled that it wasn't proper food.
'It is. It's yummy,' I said.
'It's all stuff you like,' he said.
'It's all stuff I have the ingredients for.'
'Yes, it's all stuff you like.'
What he means, of course, is that it doesn't contain meat.
