Killing time

Had a quiet Sunday morning, had a late breakfast. In the afternoon Stephen went for his two hour cycle ride. On his return we decided to move out of March town and go up river.

So,while Marlene cooked the Sunday roast Stephen and I untied Doublefracture and set off on the forty minute trip to the junction with the 20ft drain, where we would moor for the night.

It was a sunny evening with a chill wind across the river. Marlene and Stephen played Scrabble after dinner, while I sat in the cratch and read and drank a couple of glasses of red wine.

We finished the evening watching the Snooker final. A very enjoyable evening moored in peace and quiet.

Monday we returned to March town then had late breakfast again because Stephen had to catch his train home. Marlene and I are killing time before going to Peterborough on Friday where we are meeting our daughter Pamela and Son in law Nathan not forgetting our nine month old Grandson Archie. More about that later in the week.

Today though we just relaxed on the boat. For dinner we had a vegeterian meal of Green Beans in tomato. Here's the recipe so you can try it.

Serves Two
Ingredients: 12oz Green beans, 1 large onion(chopped), 4 gloves garlic(more or less to taste),1 tin chopped tomatos. 4 oz cheese(grated) and some tomato puree.

Method; Cook beans and onions until tender, strain then add tomatos and garlic, season to taste. Thicken mixture with tomato puree and put into two individual oven proof dishes. Top with cheese and bake till golden brown. Serve with crusty bread.
