Today I’m in a bit of a daze. It’s rained for two days solid here in Italy and I’m packing for the long journey from Milan to Kolkata (via Heathrow and Doha) that begins in a few hours (or earlier today if you count the drive up to the airport). I’ve been immersed in this period of creative development for nearly a year, so now this very final stage is here I’m both ridiculously excited and terrified. Decided I needed super Italian-style comfort food to calm me down on a wet day and also wanted to use up the veg in the fridge as it’s not Andy’s strong point ??. Made herby lemon polenta topped with chilli and braised veggies. Not the prettiest meal but exactly what I needed right now to keep me going. This is #vegan #glutenfree but I’ll be honest that’s been hard here in the land of pizza, pasta and cheese ? so I’m trying to just substitute as many meals as possible for v/gf. Which is still moving in the right direction. Also the pisto basil cuttings I took from France have now gone into soil and are doing well. Andy’s under orders to take care of her for me ?
Now I have to pack.
