It’s raining and grey but the dog and I decided to double loop the park anyway. Jonathan has left for England and we didn’t want to face going back to the house without him. It’s as empty as an echo. I have had 3 cups of tea and 3 digestive biscuits covered in chocolate. I have done the dishes and looked at the laundry, I have planned menus for work and watched the clock. For lunch I made mushroom risotto cakes with Wednesday’s risotto and a salad of blood building braised beets, avocado, shallot and lettuce. Press the risotto only as much as it takes to get it to stick together, dust with flour and let the butter go quiet in the pan before you add the cakes.
