Now it really is feeling like winter. Frosty mornings, shorter days and sparkly rays of afternoon sunshine most days.
One little spot in our kitchen catches particularly pretty afternoon light. When there are no flowers to pick there is always plenty of olive tree foliage.
Outdoor cooking in camp ovens is very common for us at this time of year, but cooking desserts and baking sweets things in camp ovens is something we are still experimenting with. This fruit and almond tart was a recent camp oven success story. As per usual when cooking with fire or coals, timing is everything.
I am so grateful for a successful broccoli crop.
Locally grown oranges. There is nothing better at this time of year. Do you have a favourite way to use oranges, other than fresh or juiced?
From what I read, a lot of my favourite bloggers drink a lot of tea. So do I, especially in the cold weather when drinking water is less appealing. Black tea in the morning, green tea at lunchtime, red tea in the afternoon and back to green in the evening. My friend Sarah reminded me recently that tea and popcorn is a great pick-me-up on a cold afternoon. Tea and popcorn also has a lovely ring to it don’t you think?
What are you cooking or making at the moment?
I hope it is warm and smelling delicious in your kitchen.
