As soon as Jonathan and Ming Ming head off to London I have to whisk off their bedding, air the room, and prepare it for my older brother and his wife who will arrive the following day. They will stay with us until the weekend.
My brother has recently been diagnosed with a disease which is making it very difficult for him to swallow, breathe, or talk. He has lost an enormous amount of weight in the last few months as he struggles to find any food that he can manage to eat.
During his visit I would love to be able to find something that he can eat and enjoy, so I am racking my brains to come up with suitable dishes for him. Obviously the sweeter dishes are not too difficult to concoct, but I'd really like to have something savoury to offer him.
Does anyone have any ideas at all? Savoury or sweet, I'd really appreciate your input.
PEAR TREE LOG
pear tree log: I started this blog to keep my younger son, Jonny, in touch with life in Lincolnshire, while he spent a year working in China. That was two years ago...he's still in Shanghai and I am still writing. There will be nothing clever, witty, or well written; nothing to impress. It is simply a patchwork quilt of some of the things I enjoy - life in rural Lincolnshire, our animals, friends, architecture, books, the gardens, and things of passing interest.
I have moved over to my new blog: Bramble Rambles - you are welcome to call in and have a read.
