It’s been a perfect, blue sky, summer’s day here. Paul and I went to market early; there are always long queues in the boulangerie with tourists at this time of year. We got bread and pastries, filled our plastic bottles with rosé and red at the wine stall, and bought a large, juicy Charentais melon from another stall.
Back home we had coffee and pastries on the terrace before a wander around the garden with my trug. When I saw how well the basil was growing, after a shaky start in the spring, I decided to pick a big bunch and make some pesto. Not such an easy task after breaking my whizzer but I managed to chop everything fine before finishing it off with a hand blender.
|I like the label on this tin of chick peas|
Tomorrow Paul is going to harvest a load of tomatoes for more soup and I intend to dig up some beetroots to make my annual chocolate and beetroot cake.
Does my life revolve around food? Well, yes, just a bit!
To me it seemed a perfect life.ReplyDelete
Not perfect but it's pretty good.Delete
It may revolve around food but the food sounds delicious.ReplyDelete
Food always seems to taste better when you can eat outside.Delete
Love eating from the garden.ReplyDelete
Can't beat food fresh from the garden.Delete
I buy that same brand of chick peas; for the same reason!ReplyDelete
I am puzzled as to what your world revolves around.ReplyDelete
I like to keep people guessing.Delete
Your food sounds delicious.ReplyDelete
Thank you Elaine.Delete
There is joy to be found in simple foods and especially in homegrown fruit and vegetables. Did you throw the chick pea water away? Whip it with a mixer and it turns into aquafaba.ReplyDelete
I had to look it up, I thought you were teasing!Delete
Your food sounds gorgeous and I'd buy the chickpeas just for the label as it looks so exotic!ReplyDelete
It is pretty isn't it?Delete
I'm still contemplating a wine stall where you get your plastic bottles filled up. Sounds perfect! -JennReplyDelete
