It is threatening to be a cold, wet and miserable week but it will be OK! As I write the fire is lit and daughter is preparing from Rick Stein’s “India” recipe book a Lamb & Yoghurt Curry with Yoghurt and Sour Plums (or sour cherries in this case). Not tried this one before but looks promising. Our little deli is warm and welcoming and we have made a particularly tasty and fiery Red Thai Sweet Potato Soup to warm one’s cockles. Our Breakfast Muffins have made a return to the Cake Counter as a nod to a healthy January which are sweetened with a date puree and make a good breakfast with some thick yoghurt and blueberries. On the subject of breakfast, we have been cogitating endlessly about the perfect Granola and whether we should be making our own. There are so many out there, it is quite a challenge to come up with our own version but it’s on the cards so watch this space. I have just eaten a handful of Sour Cherries – they are amazing! What else to do with them? Dark Chocolate & Sour Cherry Cookies coming soon!
