Stills (for last week ... just a few days late!)










1. Cauliflower soup for a rainy day lunch (with bread made by Abuela, lucky me).
2. Admiring the embroidery on my Little Tienda goodies (I won this!). A heart felt thank you, Em and Em!
3. Isn't she lovely? Flicking through a Japanese print book at my sister's house.
4. The last of the persimmon, in my mum's kitchen. (That blue in the background is the colour she is considering for her kitchen cabinets).
5. An afternoon walk (or run if you're Oscar) in the rain.

Linking to Em and Meagan.

    You have captured such vibrant, beautiful colours in your photos.

    1. Thanks G.

      I keep my soups really simple generally! I can't remember exactly what I put in that one, but it would have been something like – onion (or leek), maybe garlic, celery, a potato. Sweat all these in a little bit of oil or butter, then add heaps of cauliflower and some stock or water to cover (vege or chicken depending on what I have). Serve with any combo of chives/parsley/greek yoghurt/grated parmesan/fresh bread that my heart desires!

    1. My parents have a persimmon tree that is sometimes so heavy with fruit, that if you don't cull some branches may snap off!

  6. lots of lovely here, and the bright colours are a sight for sore eyes. the persimmons with the white jug against a blue background is just glorious and makes me long for the greek islands. kitchen cupboards that made you dream of greek islands would be good! happy weekend x
