Glints of a kingdom #3

We buy the ingredients and our friend comes round to make dinner for us. When Michelle’s cooking, we get to play sous chef in our own kitchen – chopping onions as required, digging out the right size of casserole dish, running to the corner shop for last minute gravy powder.

Once we’re all sat down around the dinner table, someone says grace, and we eagerly tuck in to Michelle’s freshly-cooked shepherd’s pie, or spaghetti bolognese, or sausage casserole.

Here we all are – whether we’ve worked all day or never had a paid job in our lives, whether we got degrees at university or didn’t quite finish school, whether we own our own place or probably never will – here we all are, linked up and levelled out by simply sharing Michelle’s meal.
