Sunday Lunch....

I am so proud of myself! I have just cooked a Sunday roast dinner for 6 adults! Our friends Alice & Eddie, Jackie & Matt arrived just after 1pm and have just left. We had some bubbly to start, then tomato and basil soup, then roast chicken with roast potatoes, sweet potatoes, roast carrots, roast parsnip and gravy. Then a break. (In the meantimes lots of red and white wine). Then chocolate doughnuts from Spruengli. Then tea with after eight mints. But this all took 6 hours!!

But I cooked and co-ordinated everything without drama. And we were only about 10 minutes last sitting down to eat! We've just been sitting and drinking and talking for the last couple of hours, and it's been great. I feel all grown up, like I've passed some sort of test :-)
