Sal and I made pumpkin and feta ravioli the other morning. We used the last punkin' that Carol grew from last season - gee it had a fantastic taste! 'Twas lots of fun. We topped it off with garlic and chilli sage butter...and salad on the side..mmmmmmm.
Carol takes over:
Mish and Sal have seen the sights the last few days, up the coast, over to Eastbourne, into the city, out to the Hutt, art galleries and cafes...etc.
Mish went to work today and Sal and I had a most relaxing day, just us and the grey sky and the wind and clouds and some books and Sal's school reports.
Made crackers for the first time today (not successful, they are like squashed scones, so will roll out flatter next time). Also made dukkah and that was successful; good fun to make with the toasting of sesame seeds and the heating of coriander and cumin seeds - so the house came over all spicey odiferous - then the grinding of spices in Mischa's mortar and pestle. Mmm mmm. With a good NZ olive oil, we do lots of them now, and crusty Italian bread.
