Bits and Bobs

Inspirational video of the day: How to use a paper towel properly. This is only a few minutes long. A second video which you have probably seen but my kids haven't -- The collapse of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge.

Food notes; tonight we are celebrating -- with the help of Pizza Hut -- Jonathan's achieving the highest score in his school on the Junior Maths Challenge.

At the weekend we had a family favourite meal -- Allegra McEvedy's slow cooked lamb & chickpea soup with chermoula. We tip noodle nests into this at the end to make something more like a pasta. The second meal was the duck salad from Jamie's 30 minute meal version, with giant croutons and rice pudding but no stewed plums. Luckily, home made rice pudding and toasted almonds and a bit of lemon curd was plenty tasty. You do need to have something with this meal because just the duck salad and croutons would be very light, and obviously you don't make home made rice pudding in 30 minutes. I had hidden the full fat milk for this for an entire week in the fridge.
