Anna: Remember when we got this book and it was going to be our book in October?
Kirstin: Yes, I do. Because we chose Nigella. And then Nigel.
Anna: The thing was when we got this book I was really excited about it and the more I looked at it the less excited I became.
Kirstin: Oh dear. This isn’t a good start.
Anna: But I’m excited again, only because it’s not Jamie. I want to get back to normal cooking.
Kirstin: They tell you how long it takes to cook and prepare each meal. Should we be timing them again?
Anna: I’m over timing.
Kirstin: I hate the food photography in this book.
Anna: It’s rubbish.
Kirstin: It makes the food look terrible. And I’m not sure about the organisation of the book either. It’s just like the previous one. But that’s also good because there’s a chilli recipe. Yay!
Anna: I’m going to do the turkey bolognase.
Kirstin: I’m doing that chicken with a million garlic cloves.
Anna: Have you noticed the children’s menus in here?
Kirstin: No, I haven’t. Do they look good?
Anna: Sure. Terrible pictures. Cheese and ham muffins. Nuggets. All that.
Kirstin: We’ll see what the kids make of them, eh? So this month we’re doing “naturally fast food”. Bring it on.
