home alone

oh.my.god. Its here. The night i have been waiting for. And Im totally unprepared. Usually with a night alone i like to cook, stand at the stove, you know how it goes...recipe book, glass of wine, music and chop and stir and sip then eat. Maybe a movie organised or continue with a good book. Bugger. I discovered Im way underprepared. Got home, girls gone with their dad for a four day weekender, boys teething and cranky and the Blokes cooked quiche and now departed. Greens meeting. Bath 'n' bed for the bean and there's nothing for me to do! Sheesh. Bunny in the fridge but thats for Friday! Hands off. Im getting bad at this. The relaxing. Doing not much. Thought I'd relish the silence, the quiet. My pace. Nope. Quiche gone, kale cooked, wine nursed and Im wanting some input, could call someone...I find myself here with the electric 'puter box. Hellooooooooooooooooooo. Could do jobs. bonk! Could tidy the study. Bonk! Dishes? Double bonk! Could say Hey! theres a Blogger feasty get together for all you Adelaide bloggers. That's more like it. Some excitement! Yeah. Details copied directly from Mad Gnomes blog ( with their permission to cross post).

Quiche???!!!! Shouldn't you be having a meaty feast!?

Haven't you got a big cookbook to browse?!

Just relax and enjoy the silence! Relax! Relax.... ;)

Put on some favourite music, if that helps! Or dance around the place, if you like!

As long as there is wine you should be okay :)

Katrine said...

Kel said...

not much wine left...will go select bunny recipe for Friday! Silverspoon very helpful with calves head and woodcok..i do recall some bunny pages too...

Veggie Gnome said...

Oh, and what is really, really strange is that we are having rabbit on Friday, too!! How are you doing yours? Ours will land in the slow cooker, that's for sure, but it's either the 'traditional' recipe or rabbit cacciatore! (With mushies from forest.)

Kel said...

did you go shoot your own bunny- Im thinking sport shooting might be interesting...lol Im about to go peruse 'the tome' but i did read a really nice slow cooked then fried bunny dish online today- best rabbit theyd ever had kinda recipe from landowners who do lotsa bunny ( not to say they have an epicurean bone in their body) but yes, something slow..pancetta, rose,mary...home gron spud something, kale of course...btw- the books a wrist breaker, definitely a sit up job not in bed like i tried on tuesday..

Veggie Gnome said...

We let 'Wild Oz' do the hunting and shooting for us.

I'm surprised you managed to slug it up all these stairs to start with!

Next time, join Facebook and tell me all about what you're cooking so I can read about it when I'm wandering about in the middle of the night 'cause I can't sleep ;-)
