I was cooking something using half a lime for dinner here the other day. I was stuck with the other half, and didn’t know what to do with it. But then, while filling the water bottle to be placed in the fridge for extra cooling before eating, I had an idea. I sliced the lime added it to the water along with a few lemon balm leaves. So simple, easy, and so good (as long as you remember to stir the water a wee bit before serving)
This Saturday I bough about at least a kilo (two pounds) of plums. By Sunday night they were all gone. I bought twice as many as I normally would, as I planned to have a go at making jam, but I had to change those plans.
Autumn is here and I love it! (I just ignore the fact that the temperature this weekend was above out average summer temperature) It’s raining outside. I’ve come home soaking wet a few times already (despite dressing well). Evenings are filled with huge cups of tea, plums, burning candles and cuddling on the sofa. Life is good!
