Till next time,


A little bit of cooking was had. Some of the cooking was the gnocchi shown below. But the mushrooms, bacon & a few herbs did the job. These pics were taken at the last second, so the quality & how pretty it looks was not taken into account. I also got bored & had other stuff to do so half of the gnocchi was forked, the other half was not. The end result was simple but good. Not perfect by any means, I am rusty as heck. I also need to get on it and cook up a new batch of tomato sauce for the freezer. That comes in handy on those days when you want to eat healthily but do not want to spend hours in the kitchen!

Have you tried any old recipes, after years & realised that it will take a few more sessions before they are perfected once again? Have a great Monday & week!
