Tastes of the moment

Good things to eat at the moment:
  • Strangely shaped tomatoes from the garden - finally ripening.
  • Garden tomatoes
  • My brother-in-law's strawberry salad: spinach and rocket leaves tossed with strawberries cut into quarters, cashew nuts roasted with black pepper and maple syrup, and a light vinaigrette. Completely delicious.
  • A freshly baked loaf of wholemeal bread.
  • Wholemeal loaf
  • Marquess Grey tea, from Waitrose.
  • A teenage boy friendly supper - one that has large portions and is full of both meat and carbs.  Tonight it was chicken, bacon and peas, with orzo pasta, a splash of chicken stock and a dollop of creme fraiche.
  • Chicken, bacon & peas with orzo
  • The last few squares of a bar of my favourite Green and Blacks chocolate, after dealing with just one too many enormous spiders today.  The best sort of comfort food.


  1. I was listening to the radio this morning and Chris Evans asked people to text/ring/email him as to 'What September means to them' laughed out loud in agreement at the woman who said "I hate September as it's the month all the spiders come in!" I'm feeling your pain, my love, especially after a ma-hoosive one jumped out of my crocheted blanket. How dare he?! Don't like the blanket anymore. Nasty, spider harbouring evil blanket. Grrr.

  2. Yum. Can I come for tea at your house please?
