Glass of Rosa wine on table in pub

Day 47 – Sensory Perfection

“Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing.” ~ Ernest Hemingway

Pouring jasmine tea into teacup

Day 37 – Jasmine

"If I, the boiling water, And you, the tea; Then your fragrance Has to depend solely upon my plainness.... I have to be hot, even boiled Before we consume each other...." ~ Dominic Cheung This is my daughter pouring me a cup of Jasmine tea which we had with our Chinese dinner on a recent Mother and Daughter only outing. If you have never had proper Jasmine tea brewed in a teapot then I can assure you have been missing out. It is a fragrant delicate tea that requires no milk or sugar, just perfectly boiled water to realise its…

Nuts in shells

Day 26 – Nuts

"You can't go wrong with some nuts" ~ Summer SandersAnd she is right in my opinion although sometimes getting out the shell makes it all seem rather like hard work however they do look look very pretty sitting on the side wearing their wonderfully textured casings.

Day 13 – Start the day

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?" "What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?" "I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet. Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said.” ― A.A. Milne Pooh (aka A.A. Milne) definitely was a wise philosopher but on this one one he and I will have to disagree because I am not a breakfast person. My stomach just, well, can't stomach it. I rarely eat before lunchtime but the same can not be…

Day 353 – Chocolates

“Why can no one here think of anything but chocolates?” ~ Joanne Harris, Chocolat In America you would call these Candy but here in the UK they would be called chocolates. In fact the word candy is not used that often. We do have Candy canes but the word candy would only be used to describe boiled or hard sweets and even then they would, by most people be referred to as sweeties.

White bowl with white and brown sugar cubes

Day 329 -White or Brown

“When it comes to things such as sugar and rice, most people believe that brown is superior to white. But when it comes to human beings, they believe that the opposite is true.” ~ Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Day 311 – Pea-green

"I want everybody who's been mean to me to be pea-green with envy." ~ Scarlett O'Hara Scarlett is not the most likable of heroines. In fact many people really dislike her but I adore her. She is sassy, strong, determined and hugely resourceful. All traits that would be valued in a man but are frowned upon in a women. Sadly her upbringing meant she was very conflicted about herself and her role in society but it is that constant battle that makes her such a wonderfully interesting character to me.

Tomato in the market

Day 306 – Tomato Wisdom

"Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad." ~ Brian O'Driscoll

Quince fruit on tree

Day 301 – Perfectly ripe

“Give me juicy autumnal fruit, ripe and red from the orchard."? Walt Whitman Not red, but it is perfectly ripe. Do you know what this fruit is? It looks a bit apple like but it is in fact Quince. When I moved here 16 years ago my Mum bought me a Quince tree in honour of my Grandmother who had always had one and made beautiful Quince Jelly with it every year. It took a few years to really get going but now it produces a good crop each year and my Mother has taken over the job of being…

All the vegetables in Borough Market

Day 278 – All the Vegetables

“Facts must be faced. Vegetables simply don't taste as good as most other things do.” ~ Peg Bracken I am going to have to disagree with Peg on that one. Sure, if you just boil them up in some water then you are definitely going to think this but if you cook them right then you should have a treat on your hands. There are not many vegetables I don't like. I can't eat cauliflower, there is something in it that gives me the most painful indigestion. On doing research I have found that apparently I am not alone in…

Day 276 – Is there any tea?

“Arthur blinked at the screens and felt he was missing something important. Suddenly he realized what it was. "Is there any tea on this spaceship?" he asked.” ~ Douglas Adams I like my morning cup of coffee but after that is done I am all about the tea. Yes, I am very British in that way. I like it in a mug, the bigger the better and I drink it throughout the afternoon. This beautiful black mug was gifted to me by a friend. I have never been to Austin myself but I think there is something wonderfully special about…
