So.
Since my day started so well I decided to keep the momentum going and treat myself to a more indulgent lunch than normal.
I roasted cubed pumpkins in oil with garlic, caramelised some onion, made my first (intentionally) burnt butter with sage then tossed all these through one of my favourite pasta.
I then took my steaming bowl of tasty goodness and ate it in a arm chair, basked by the afternoon sun.
Phone on silent taking in the view of the garden while focussing and enjoying every mouthful.
Yes I know it might not seem like much of an indulgence but cooking for one is not something often done in our household. Being able to consume it without distractions is a whole other story as well :)
Ah… even the birds seemed to chirp with a little more joy, what a day.

  • Wow, that does sound so nice, no one else in my household likes pumpkin, I may give this a try one day when I am home alone, you should pop the recipe on the recipe page!


    • Thank you. Lol the only problem with that is the fact it was one of those times when you are in the kitchen cooking not following a recipe. You throw a little of this and a little of that in and come the end dish although it’s truly tasty you couldn’t say exactly all of the steps you did as you were just enjoying yourself in the moment.
