Oh dear, it's been a long day of food preparation and a long evening of food consumption. Well, nobody's going to bed unhappy, so that makes me smile.

Writing and cooking both get better with practice and the more you do it, the more you see (or taste) where you've made mistakes, and know where to adjust the next time you offer up your wares.
