Last April I went with Kristina and Miranda to see the Wallace Collection. I had never been before, but have gone back a couple of times already. As I remember it, the weather was far warmer than this June, but no matter the weather it’s such a lovely museum to explore. This Pieter de Hooch is one of my very favourites there. I can almost smell the bread in the basket and wonder how the boy resisted nibbling off some of that crust.

With all the cold and rain today, it seemed right to make a big pot of beef and barley soup and text Miranda to stop for bread at Gail’s on the way home to go with it. Hope they have some of their crusty sourdough left.
