The week that was.
It's been a busy week of sewing and cooking and family get-togethers and, oh this is what we have been up to...
Making supper - red peppers stuffed with garlic, cherry tomatoes, cracked black pepper and plenty of home-grown marjoram
Add great glugs of fruity olive oil and some torn basil leaves, and top the whole with thin slices of chorizo (or not as we feel)...
and grated cheese. Bake for a bit to get this...
All those rich juices need some of Mr Dave's Italian bread made with tomatoes and black olives to soak them up - yum!
So that was some of the cooking, aided and abetted by Isabella whose apron really needs a wash as she uses it so often when helping me in the kitchen. I have also been completing a wholesale order which is on it's way now - phew, the relief. It was lovely working in the sewing room on beachy bags in such lovely hot weather knowing that we could always pop down to the sea for a bit after the children were out of school.
We are hoping to eat this - food again! - the first artichoke ever from our plants. Sooo looking forward to it!
Thank you by the way for all the lovely comments about the new 'what we are doing' page on my website. The feedback has been very positive and I am taking the suggestions of a book seriously - with shock, but seriously!!! Not sure how/when/why to do it but who knows eh?
Have a lovely weekend all.
