Middle Rascal is coming home this weekend to attend an academic conference and yesterday she texted me a picture of the outfit she's planning to wear:

One of the worst things about this virus is the sore throat so it was very soothing!
Do you know what else is soothing on a sore throat? That's right, a giant glass of wine. I had a half bottle of lovely un-oaked Chardonnay from France in the refrigerator, leftover from the weekend, so I thought I'd better whip up something that would do it justice.
Aduki beans are the sort of beans you could give to non-bean lovers and they would still be happy. They are softer, with a creamy texture and are easier to digest than other beans.
I've woken up this morning feeling worse so I'll be tucked in at home, doing some more cooking. I think I'll take the opportunity to rethink my travel colour story to New Orleans too, thanks so much to all of you who gave me packing-up advice on yesterday's post. You guys are the best!
Don't get the Plague,
