Not only is Friday scone day at work, it’s also when we finish classes earlier than the other days of the week. Sometimes I stay on late to catch up on marking and paperwork or to tidy up the midden that is my desk; other times I head home shortly after the bell rings.
Today was the first still, sunny day we’ve had in these parts for weeks and weeks and weeks and… Well, you get the idea.
No prizes for guessing what I did when the bell rang today.
Light Mackerel Pâté
Whizz one part smoked mackerel (I like the peppered kind) and one part cottage cheese in a food processor for a few seconds until combined. Add a squeeze of lemon juice and some chopped parsley. Done.
Spring has exploded here in Scotland. After a very long, very dark, very cold winter, the colour and life and light of April seem otherworldly.
