I have finally remembered to start enjoying the Homes & Gardens magazines I found at the flea market a few months ago. Not all at once of course but one issue for every two days or so. There is so much going on at our place these days that even this pace feels like a luxury.
The other day I noticed a delicious-looking recipe and left the magazine open on the table hoping I might remember to buy the few missing ingredients to try it. And I actually managed to bring home some asparagus, which is essential to this dish. I was still lacking some makings but simply replaced them with something of the same sort.
