I am always excited about every supper club that I cook for but non more so than the one this Saturday! Why? Because Saira, my darling daughter has a fantastic new job. She really deserves it.
While she was having her interview I spent the morning randomly doing bus journeys in North London! I was so nervous for her that I needed to take my mind off things. I stopped off at places that I didn’t know existed and bought a whole manner of produce including fresh herbs, fish and cheese. It will take us weeks to eat it all! I am really beginning to enjoy my ‘Freedom Pass’!
By the time I got home I feared the worst and when the phone rang a very tired sounding Saira said ‘ hello Ma, can’t talk too long BUT ( long breath in!) I got the job! I was so excited I actually dropped the phone but did manage to compose myself – as you do !
Our supper club is Saira’s brainchild because she passionately believes that people need to experience real home cooked Punjabi (Indian) food and that is why her second sentence was ‘ Ma , have you made the paneer for the supper club yet?’ I lied and said yes – of course I hadn’t because I was busy all morning ‘travelling’ while she was having her interview! I don’t think she believed me but I did make up for it by buying a nice bottle of bubbly and having it chilled by the time she stopped off at the end of the day!
So on saturday I am planning a ‘celebration surprise’ for our diners. Hope they enjoy it!
Once again – really proud of you Saira.
Well done Saira, hope you enjoy the new job. Cricket involved???
Enjoy the Freedom Pass to Ma Rani
Yes! In cricket which is very exciting. Still plenty of time to cook and run our supperclub though! See you soon xx
And glad that Mma has found a use for her Freedom Pass – the name reminds me of Janis Joplin and Bobby McGee rather grimly 🙂
Thank you Duncan! x
