It was such a lovely day earlier. I say was because in true London style, the clouds have now moved in and the sky that was a crystal-clear blue is now sort of white in colour. Still, I suppose it could be worse- at least it’s not grey (yet).
The farmers market was full this morning, with sellers and shoppers alike enjoying the sunshine. Rather ironically, I wasn’t in the mood for spring-like leafy greens, but for some winterlicious root veg. Perhaps this was because of yesterday, when I made my shopping list, was cold and rainy, or maybe I was just seeing into the future and knew that the weather would turn by the time I got to eat my purchases.
Whatever the reason, I stocked up on swede, celeriac and butternut squash- all destined for a creamy and indulgent gratin later in the week. The organic mixed salad leaves will go wonderfully with a polenta dish for dinner tonight, and the thyme is to be used in some baking. Yes, baking- I’ve been smitten with the idea of herb-kissed biscuits for a while, and some lemon thyme shortbread seems like a great way to try out the trend.
