While summer is undoubtedly my favourite season, I do like autumn too. I love the way the colours of the leaves change, from orange, gold, brown, taking long walks, bundled warm in our scarves and hats and hearing the crunching of the leaves under our wellies. Then coming back home to a warm fire and maybe a mug of hot chocolate.
I think we’re settling well into autumn now, although you’ll never know we might just have an Indian summer … One can still hope.
I’m usually the main cook of the family. But a few days ago, a close friend of ours gave us some vegetables from a relative’s garden which included marrow and beetroot and gave my husband ideas. He loves marrow you see, and decided to try his hand at “stuffed marrow” last night. Apparently, marrow is a winter vegetable. I never knew that.
He absolutely enjoyed it. As for T and I? Let’s just say we ate the stuffing 😉 To be fair though, I’m not familiar with this vegetable at all. To me it looked like a giant cucumber. T actually called it a “snozzcumber” (from the BFG), The Historian wasn’t impressed at all.
Still on a roll, today, he baked us a beetroot-chocolate cake.
This time, T and I loved it.
He still has a couple of recipes up his sleeve, hopefully T and I will manage to eat it. What I meant to write was, I’m sure T and I will absolutely without any doubt lick our plates clean 😉
Our word of the week is Autumn.
