Dry, dry, dry

As if this summer hasn’t been dry enough, the lovely Ali bought me a dehydrator for my birthday! Actually, I couldn’t be more thrilled. The freezer is exploding with veg-herds pies, soups & sauces.


This evening we’re invited to a big birthday party. We’re taking a dish of cour-bhajis and some chilli dipping sauce. I really hope people enjoy them as much as we did while I was cooking. There were a lot more than in the photo but we couldn’t resist eating them as they came out of the fryer.


Ali & I have just taken a brief four day break in Genoa which is just a six hour drive along the south coast of France, then a wiggle around the Ligurian coastline.
