Roasted fennel with balsamic vinaigrette

The rain finally came, making it an indoor Sunday, with curled up cats on the couch, and me watching the Iron Lady for a second time. It seems that people love or hate the movie equally strong. I find it very moving. To imagine that such a powerful woman, a world leader, today struggling with dementia she might look back on her life like this. Although the representation of her life of now is fictional, it is very well done. I am not sure how likeable Maggie Thatcher really is, but Maggie Thatcher with Meryl Streep’s heart makes me love her. Meryl Streep deserved this oscar. And she has a few more in her.

I deep cleaned the kitchen, made vegan muffins, which tasted great (apple cardamon!) but they were sticky instead of crumbling so they need a make over. The roasted fennel with roasted mini bell pepper and balsamic vinaigrette was delicious.
