“Mama, Mama, Maaamaaa” the door to my bedroom slams open and The Ru is backlit by sunshine..”poo” “poo” he shouts whilst waddling towards me, doing what can only be described as, The Poo Walk.
All of this occured at 6.45 on a Sunday morning. Its just not right! I know I am a mother and I know that it is a privelage to have these wonderful little people in my life, but enough is enough, the poopey mornings need to stop! I want to be woken by birds singing, someone bringing me a cup of tea. Not by a scene reminiscint of a 1970’s horror film.
I am glad to say the day got progressively better. I packed up the car and headed to Henley on Thames for lunch at Stirring Stuff. I teach a selection of courses at the school and will be adding a few more to the list over the Summer and Autumn. Belinda had made Spanish Tapas and a huge Paella, the kids had a swim and it was a beautiful day.
A lovely end to a productive week. Lisa and I shot an Indian Story and I discovered the most fabulous pop up in London Fields, if you are in the area check them out, The Dead Dolls Club. Great food and its in London Fields Brewery too, so a win win situation.
After all the Indian Cooking I rather bizarrely had a craving for Chinese food. I have no idea where that came from but needs must.
I made a ton of stir fry noodles and twice cooked pork. It had been ages since I cooked Chinese and I realised how much I missed it. So easy and cheap to make. The stir fry was devoured (even my neighbours notoriously fussy kids came back for seconds).
My gift to you is my stir fry noodle recipe. As usual the ingredients can be amended, use whatever veg you have in your fridge.
Have a wonderful week.
A sneak peek at our Indian Story.
