28 May Semolina and chocolate dessert
Has anyone ever been more tired than me? I might be emotional if I had the energy, but it’s ran out. Don’t worry I haven’t got some strange, undiagnosed illness, it all makes sense and I will tell you why I’m so very tired soon. In the meantime, I need to write and cook, write and cook, and even though those are the things I love doing most, it doesn’t always come easily. Some days are a fountain of perfectly chosen words, metaphors and ideas, while others are… Blank. And part of writing a book appears to be not letting the blank days get you down. Sugar helps these days. I spent so many years trying to avoid it, but now I just don’t care. These semolina desserts topped with chocolate sauce and pecans are nutritious, refreshing and energising all at the same time. Perfect.
