On Saturday evening, We had homemade veal burgers. I got the mince veal from my Scottish butcher. I prefer veal to beef as it is tender and easy to cook. The Mhinisteir likes veal too.
I did all my preparation for the burger on Saturday morning so all I had to do in the evening was to cook the veal burgers and assemble them.
By lunchtime, my usual health woes were beginning to plaque me so I had to have a lie down. It was soon time for dinner but I was only feeling slightly better. However, I decided to soldier on and cook the veal burgers. I am not a fan of barbecues so I usually cook my burgers in the oven. Unfortunately on this day, the oven got very smoky. I only had it professionally cleaned about afortnight ago so am not sure what happened there. The next minute the smoke alarm went off. The Mhinisteir went into an almighty panic and started closing the windows. Yes, you read it right. He started closing the windows!!!! Why? He didn’t want the neighbours to hear the alarm. I thought it was hilarious. I instructed him to wave a tea towel at the alarm while I started opening the windows. Thankfully the alarm stopped beeping just after a few minutes and calm was restored in the Vicarage Kitchen.
Oh by the way, The veal burgers were lovely too!!!
