Licence to Fill

On the plus side – there’s always a plus side – this minor medical crisis has triggered the contingency gourmet plan. I’m exercising my right to override some dietary restrictions.

I have just made what I consider to be the apogee of iron-rich dinners. Also one I really enjoy. Pure comfort food. Delicious: Lambs fry in a slow cooked caramelised red onion, bacon, marmite, and garlic gravy. The haeme iron in liver is one of the most easily digested bio-available forms of iron. The vitamin c that is found in the onion is essential for the body to digest the iron. The bacon and gravy tastes good. I used wholemeal flour, so it was very Wholesome. Because of the gravy I skipped the mashed potato but I still had the peas. Essential.

For dessert: Guinness.

And a mandarin.

I am replete, and comforted. Not something I get to say all that much.

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
