a year and a day

February 15, 2013

Today the sun put in an appearance and the world was wonderful for a while. The sky was blue, people were out in the streets smiling and the market was busy and noisy (with people and pneumatic drills rather than cars as they’re digging up the road, and have been for a few weeks now – the less said about it the better I think). cavolo-nero

I bought some lovely, organic, local cavolo nero –  a dark green, loose leaf cabbage which is delicious, and so so much better than curly kale. It’s supposed to be good in soups, but I think that’s probably a waste of its talents.

I think the beloved ought to grow it. I’d be happy with a cavolo nero glut. The photo doesn’t really do it justice.dinner

I cooked some this evening – very simply: washed, chopped, lightly steamed and dressed with a smidgen  of butter and some black pepper. Perfect. Especially with an egg  – and a salad with shredded raw beetroot, beanshoots, lettuce and watercress; lentils with mushroom and spinach, mashed potato (obligatory – the potato glut is still very apparent)  and a  dollop of hummous on the side – again poor photograph doesn’t do it justice.

This is my 366th post…
