Hindsight is (always) 20/20 vision

Having been in poor old blighty for Christmas, New Years Day lunch was supplemented by the fruits of my last few weeks labours from the Casa Rosada store cupboard.After a spicy jug of the thespian´s Bloody Mary, we sat down with friends to a hearty lunch, which included my annual home made Melton Mowbray pork pie, Bloody Mary muffins,Chouriço and manchego scones,Iberican cold cuts,including mini fuet, a Catalan thin, dry cured,chippolata type sausage of pork meat in a pork gut. The most famous is made in the comarca of Osona and is also known as Vic fuet. It is flavored with black pepper and garlic, and sometimes aniseed, but unlike Chorizo contains no paprika.
We drank Munir,Catarratto, a fresh biologic wine grown on the sunny vineyards of Sicily.


 Asian style Kedgeree was  made with an expat favourite craving, smoked haddock, and we ended with chocolate and hazelnut pavlovas (more on that story later Kirsty) - patience is a virtue.Well its a new decade and its time to start as one means to go on,so I am going to leave you with a  New Year idiom. 
 It is easier to clearly re-evaluate past actions or decisions than when they are being made or done; things are much clearer to us now and more obvious to us than when the choice was put to the " the people".Well,"it was the will of the people", "the people spoke" didn´t they all "17.4 million of them".
 In hindsight things might have seemed obvious then are  not  so obvious now. 20/20 vision enables us to evaluate past choices more clearly than at the time those choices were made. 
Happy New Year Everyone!!!!!
