Deeply misty, can't see the harbour - can't see much at all. Had a few hours in the city today, shopping. Not something we do a lot, so that was fun. Grey but warm. And of course, what did we get? Another sodding parking ticket! I can't believe how many tickets we get in Wellington; am getting paranoid about parking in the city. Anywhere. Anytime.
Came home and had to pick up where we left a planting operation yesterday: barrow more soil and plant a tree, because it is windy as blazes but neither cold nor raining, so conditions ok for working outside. Hmmm.
It's tomato time, prices down to $2.99 kilo for the vine ripened lovelies we like. Have just taken a tray out of the oven after two hours slow roasting - yum. That's the way we eat 'em these days, superb - really brings out the flavour.
Out at a local party a few weeks back and someone had brought along a big bowl of cherry tomato with mango combo. Yum!
Here 'tis: slice toms in half and mix with mango slices, thinly sliced red onion and some coriander. Awesome.
Now we have Bill Withers on the stereo and Mish is happily making bread, chemoula, and smoked fish cakes in her stainless steel kitchen...
