|Last night Martino and I went out on a date, Mediterranean style. First we got dressed up and went into Brunswick to see Rebetiko Tragoudi for the Brunswick Music Festival. It was glorious; the sparkling, joyous sounds of the Greece we both love so much. A place surrounded by glittering ocean and sunlight must of course produce music like that.|
|We ate olive bread and goats cheese in the garden and admired it's simple, autumn beauty. everything is soft and green and about to change.|
|I'm enjoying our newly reorganised kitchen. It's an oldie but a goodie and happily transformed by new shelves. It could do with a lick of paint, as could the whole house. But it has such country charm. We do love it in all it's rustic quirkiness.|
|I tried my first bit of cable knitting - the panel on the Milo vest I am knitting for a friend's new baby.|
Here is my loose recipe for the Pear Thingamejig!
For the pears;
- four small Buerre Bosc pears, quartered and pips removed
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon honey
For the flan;
- 1 cup almond meal
- 1 mixed cup Spelt and plain flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 80g butter melted
- 1/2 cup honey
- almonds - whole or blanched
You can also warm some honey and macadamia oil as a glaze for after baking.
I hope your long weekend is turning out beautifully.
