A quick trip to the plot. And the winter bounty has started. The first parsnips and jerusalem artichokes. Used in a slow roasted caserole. Intensely satisfying. Growing your own spuds for the mash. Herbs for seasoning. Adding a few shop bought things, leeks and pearl barley. The chicken falls off the bones after two and half hours.
The loaf is for supper.
The Great Gatsby. Been meaning to read this for about two years. It’s never in the library. So I went crazy and bought a copy. It’s thin. How’s that for one of life’s great literary comments and reveiws. Half and inch. Other great thin books. This and this. oh and this.
