Part 2

Location: London
Time: 9pm
Just a quick update. Last night Dad and I spent the evening at M&C's for sunday dinner, and what a dinner it was! I experienced the best roast potatoes I have ever eaten (sorry Dad!). I have no idea how M gets them so crispy on the outside yet so moist on the inside but however it is done, it is heaven sent. I also had the pleasure of meeting both M's daughter and her daughter for the first time. It was such an enjoyable evening that before we knew it, it was time to walk back to the station to make the last tube back to our flat.
I spent today wandering around the city completing some last minute errands and also using the free time to take some photographs of London. It's been a while since I have spent time just wandering around, taking photographs and I realized how much I have missed my little hobby. I also realized how old my digital camera is when I noticed my camera is only capable of taking pictures that are 2.0 megapixels.
Now that my suitcase is packed, I am ready to head off to Barcelona. I hope the weather stays pleasant, cloudy is okay as long as it is dry, so that I can really enjoy wandering the streets of Barcelona.

The secret of great roast potatoes lies initially in the choice of potato. They should be old rather than new and "floury" rather than "waxy".I use Maris Piper in the UK.
Peel then wash the potatoes.Boil them till just before they start to disintegrate.Then cook them in an oven in an oil/fat that can stand a very high cooking temperature. Goose fat is a traditional UK favourite but I normally use rape seed oil.You can add a slug of rosemary infused olive oil to give them extra zing.Set the oven temperature as high as you can and remove when very brown.
