2016: the year of spaciousness

Because there's more to life than work

Food in the sun

Except for breakfast, we’ve had every meal outside today. I went for a run first thing, the sun shone non-stop, I got my containers planted up with lemon balm, rosemary, thyme, mint and other surplus garden plants, and we lazed and basked in the garden till the midges got a bit too persistent.

Made the tomatoes with garlic and cream for tea – really easy meal for a hot day. Cut large tomatoes into thick slices, put in a single layer in a baking dish and pour over a small pot of double cream, season. Bake at Mark 7 for 20 mins. Mix together 50g grated cheddar, 25g parmesan, pinch dried chilli flakes, 1 crushed garlic clove and 1 tbsp chopped basil, sprinkle over the whole dish once baked, and finish under a hot grill for about 5 mins till it’s all golden with a few crispy bits.


Serve with lots of crusty bread. And wine. And sit in the sun preferably.
