Today was one of those days that remind me why October is my favourite month of all; a bright blue sky, green-and-gold trees, and almost impossibly sunny. The colours seem to have influenced my buying decisions, because why else would I have chosen this particularly vibrant assortment of produce?
The orange ‘mums were my first purchase of the morning, and seemed to set the tone for everything else. They’re now nestled in an earthenware jug on Andrew’s desk, brightening up our living space. Those lovely santa grape tomatoes will brighten up a dish in our kitchen this week; I’m thinking either as a side dish, or tossed with some pasta.
Romanescu is at its peak right now, and I was happy to find this lovely one at my favourite veg stall. Last Autumn I made a stunning soup with this cauli-broc hybrid, but I’d love to try something a little more out there this week. I’m thinking a curry, so any recipes or advice would be greatly appreciated.
I hope you can hang around, because later today I’ll be posting a recipe for squash salad. I did mean to post it yesterday, but Dim Sum led to shopping in the West End, which led to sitting in front of the X Factor eating Mac n’ Cheese (w/ caramelised onions and sundried tomatoes, naturally). Better late than never, though.
What are you cooking this week? Any October favourites you’d like to share?
