Cooking, Walking and Knitting


Once again it was another busy weekend... they all seem to be like that lately! Hubby found a wonderful recipe from this magazine. Have I mentioned that hubby is a bit of a wine aficionado... don't you love that word. I can hardly believe it. I just did a spell check on it and I got it right! Good grief, I am so surprised! Anyway where was I... Oh yes the recipe. It was on the front cover and it looked really yummy and best of all it called for lots of fresh tomatoes... and those we have by the ton! So here is the finished recipe. It tasted as great as it looked. The addition of all those fresh from the garden tomatoes made it light and wonderful. It was the perfect meal after returning from a lovely long walk. I hope that this photo of a young Peregrine Falcon having his dinner doesn't make you to squeamish. I had thought that maybe I shouldn't post it but it was on our walk and as you know I always take you along and show you all the wildlife that we spot. We watched it for the longest time. He was about 150 yards from us and didn't seem to mind that we were looking at him. Toward early evening on our walk we spotted this very large Beaver having his dinner... this time it was more of a salad. He was happily munching away clearing a path as he went. I always love walking in the early evening. We see so many different kinds of animals than we do during the day. Not to mention it makes me really sleepy and ready for a good nights sleep. Sometimes I can hardly keep my eyes open sitting on the couch after we return home. But I did keep them open long enough........ to get started on the sleeves of daughters sweater!
All in all I was quite pleased with our weekend. We saw a lot and did a lot. I like weekends like that, don't you?
See you soon!

A perfect weekend --- Tomatoes just remind me of my Grandma who used to grow them in her greenhouse. She would take my hand and we would go looking for the ripe ones--- and do you know what there were always jut 1 or 2 just at my height. Funny thing that, just special things Grandmas do!

I've been making plenty of tomato sauces from the tomatoes in our garden, plus stuffed courgettes from my parents' garden. My courgettes didn't come to much. I saw a peregrine falcon last summer in Cornwall - well a parent with it's young and I was surprised how noisy they were!

That looks tasty. I made a pasta salad over the weekend and it turned out well.

I love your wildlife photos.

I could eat Italian food every day. Just a shame my OH doesn't like pasta, cheese, or tomatoes come to that! You certainly come across some amazing nature studies. You may have finished that sweater by now? x
