It's UK Mothers Day, this Sunday, April 3, 2011!! (And a very Happy Mothers Day to Peggy, who is off to Malta momentarily with her local dive club!!)
Anyway, not that there's anything maternal about Jamie Oliver, but feeding our young is one of our necessary tasks, and despite the "maternal" appellation, it's no longer just women who do that. Nobody ever taught me how to cook. My mother was an excellent cook, so I just lined up at the table with the rest, then I entered the convent, where they had a wonderful cook from the same town as Lawrence Welk. When I leapt over the wall and eventually got engaged, I had to pick cooking up fast from various masters as I went along.
In the meantime, I'm wondering how I can get a haircut like Jamie Oliver's? Maybe with a hand-held blender??
