Weekending - The Food Edition
It is Auckland Anniversary weekend where I live, so that means a three day weekend.
Friday saw The Scout and I, celebrate 16 years of wedded bliss, so out came the bubbly. Very nice too.
An abundance of vegetables - especially cucumbers - I sent 7 of those with The Scout to his work, to give away. There are still a few more left to pick, but I think that plant is nearly finished producing. The beans are going mad again, however my cherry tomatoes aren't looking as plentiful this year.
Cooking with black rice, for the first time. I love how the coloured vegetables look like little jewels in it.
More beautiful cookbooks to read and savour. I love the recipes, photos and anecdotes in La Tartine Gourmand, by Beatrice Peltre, author of the same named blog Great recipes especially for gluten intolerant people.
Beautiful red plums from a friend - turned into this delicious vanilla plum cake. It makes a large cake or two smaller ones. I cooked mine in a roasting dish.
The first of my black cherry tomatoes starting to ripen - a lot bigger than normal cherry tomatoes.
What have you been cooking/baking this weekend?
