Are you gracious? I am not. In fact I am downright awkward. I don't like being the centre of attention, and deflect compliments faster than I can say thankyou. I'm quick to point out flaws in my work, and can't help but say don't look too close, it's not very good.
When it comes to giving compliments, I don't think I am much better. Of course I see things I like. Everyday. But do I take the time to tell people? Not so often. Perhaps this is why I like blogging. Giving and accepting compliments is so much easier. So enough of the introversion and more of the Nanna Food.
Today I am cooking a vegetable and barley soup. With alphabet noodles. No tricks here, just a reliance on homemade chicken stock to make it sing.
This soup is good. I make it at least once a week, and love it with toast soldiers for dipping. Because I have time today though, I am making dinner rolls to go with it. Petit pain, infinitely better than those nasty, bake at home ones that our local supermarket sells. Not to mention making the house smell all
burnt because I forgot them lovely and yeasty.
So to copy the words (and image) from pinksuedeshoe, from now on I will try to say a simple thankyou. Then I'll just shut up.
