For Dinner Tonight:

Red Lentil, Tomato and Frankfurter Soup
Baker's Bread
Homemade Strawberry Yoghurt

The weather here was fairly dull all day so a hearty soup didn't seem at all out of place - until dinner time that is when it brightened up and came over all summery. Ah well, that's May for you. The bread was from my emergency freezer stash, I got my timing all wrong and realised, too late to make any, that the bread bin was bare. In Grace Livingston Hill novels, of which I am fond, whenever a scene of domestic chaos is described there is always mention of a loaf (usually a stale one) of 'baker's bread'. It is a sort of code so that we know just how bad things are in the household that the heroine is about to transform. I could do with a GLH heroine about the house just now to restore some domestic order!

Oh, you're right about the Grace Livingston Hill books! Isn't that funny? And she always made an orange with a few crackers, or other bits of common food, sound delicious.
