Just a quickie today. Not because I haven't got loads for which to be thankful but because I had some pictures that I took recently that I wanted to use - honesty is, I usually think, the best policy.
|Lavender essence for drinks|
|Champagne and lavender essence|
|Champagne with strawberry liqueur|
At dinner on the night before Jamie left for his gap year in Europe and China Wendy had produced some unusual drinks: lavender and strawberry which, frankly, I though sounded rather awful. I'll give most things a try though and I did realise that even if I didn't like the taste the colours were rather photogenic. The essences were topped up with champagne and, I have to confess, were both unusual and much more pleasant than I had anticipated.
The roast tomatoes were lovely both to eat and photograph. I often use roast tomatoes not just because I love eating them but because they provide such great visual impact.
So today I am just giving thanks for food and drink and for the opportunity to share these thoughts.
