I love pottering around the house at night when all is quiet. Will is overseas and the children are asleep. It's close to midnight and I'm making chicken stock.
Maybe it's the colder weather, or maybe its because I'm ravenously hungry at the moment, but I'm enjoying cooking right now. Last night I made Jamie Oliver's meatballs and the boys declared they were as good as Maria's.
Maria is the Italian nanny who used to look after the boys for many years. She was a wonderfully traditional Italian cook and made meatballs regularly for them. I was immensely chuffed when they gave their verdict.
Soon I'll wake Adelaide for a feed and then head off to bed. Osso bucco and potato and leek soup tomorrow.
