Simple Suppers

I swear I am getting lazier by the day.

I finally realised just last week that the family do not look for -nor require- a 3 course evening meal daily. Baby-G is excellently provided for at school with a daily hot lunch plus salad plus pudding. H-G sorts himself out through the day, and my new workplace has a microwave and so I can heat up leftovers with abandon.

So, simple suppers are the go. Last week I ‘cooked’ baked beans on toasted English muffins. Then I cooked scrambled eggs on English muffins. Then we went out for dinner.

Tonight I ‘assembled’ rather than cooked. Pasta bake. Cooked pasta. Cooked broccoli. Added cheese sauce and grated cheese. Grilled in oven while reading B-G’s homework and sipping tea. The dish once in the oven took the exact length of time as ‘The Archers’ on Radio 4 (14 minutes).

Eat. Watch Big Bang Theory. Bed.

Bring it on Tuesday.

I started out planning to be a film maker and realized I prefer working alone rather than waiting around for others to get their part of the job done. I had to do still photography as part of my course at university and realized I enjoyed it more because you can just get on with it. I am from Australia and I am answering your questions in Iceland about work I did in Russia. I have always taken photographs and I consider being an artist to be my main job but I have always had to have a real job at the same time. I eventually trained as a teacher, partly so I could travel – I moved to London (where lots of Aussies are teachers) so I could try to see more…
