Anyway, Today was another fairly uneventful day. I took Fiammetta to school, came back and helped Livia clear some of the junk from around the house. She has emptied out a cupboard which seems to have tardis-like properties, because there is just so
Later in the day I got round to asking Livia to speak Italian with me when the children aren't around, which she did...until I left then came back about half an hour later. I can see it becoming a fun little daily routine, me asking her to speak Italian and her forgetting. But then, what is life without a little repetition? Repetition? Repetition?
Now for my food segment (I've decided, just now, that this will be an exciting daily section of my entries, seeing as I seem to be cooking something new everyday). Today was the turn of the bechamel potatoes. Normally they have cartons of bechamel sauce in the house (which, personally, I think is a little lazy, but that's neither here nor there) but today we were all out so I made my own. It was all going splendidly until Livia came over and poured in a whole lot of milk at once, making it lumpy. She very nearly ruined it and I very nearly had a nervy B. (nervous breakdown for all of you who are not up to date with your youth talk). Still, like a true professional I managed to rectify the situation and in the end produced a dish that was fairly nice and not as bland as one would expect. I really am turning into a culinary marvel... Also, and I know this is a bit of a shame for poor Maelys, but today Livia told me that I should do as much of the cooking as possible because I was better at it than Maelys. Unfortunately this means I have to cook more (as is to be expected when one is asked to cook more) but it's always nice to have your achievements noticed.
Tomorrow Maelys and I are going to try and go back to the shopping outlet we went to yesterday because, quite frankly, it was awesomes.
