It’s not only a new term for me at school (starting tomorrow) but a new season in London. Honestly, the past couple days have convinced me that we’ve skipped right over Spring and gone straight into Summer. Of course, as my Mum said to me earlier today, it might be back to Spring or even Winter in a couple days, so I’m enjoying it while I can.
Part of that was getting up bright and early and heading to the market. I’m still waiting on asparagus and strawberries, but the radishes are finally here, and the spring greens are abundant. I’ll probably eat the radishes and fennel bulb together, maybe in a spring salad like this one. I also got a lovely head of cauliflower, which I’ll probably braise into submission for a dinner later this week.
I’m also hoping to get some baking done this week, though I’m not sure I’ll have the time with work and school starting again. My sisters oatmeal cookies look simple enough though, and all those oats should be just the hit of energy I need in the coming days.
