Shared Kitchen



Time to feastIt’s still sunny at my place, but temperatures have dropped around most of the country, so the chill is on its way. I used to love coming home from school to a warm kitchen when I was child, and my kids loved it too, especially when it was full of tempting smells. Good food is like that. It draws people in, brings them together, which is why the kitchen is called the heart of the home. If you run a family home, never undervalue the effort you put in. It is always worth it to make homecooked food, to create memories for your family, to teach children cooking skills, which they often absorb by osmosis, just by living in a family where food is cooked from scratch. And to set them off on the path of being able to cook for themselves and to look after their health.
On Mother’s Day I shared a feast with my immediate family Luca, Ilaria and Remo. Roasted Onions (ridiculously good, and ridiculously easy!),  Baked Peppers with Chorizo, Fried Cauliflower with Olives & Herbs and  meatless Potato & Eggplant Moussaka.
We were stuffed after that lot (there were leftovers for 2 days!), but somehow we managed a slice of Apple & Blackberry Pie! Apple pies remind me of my own mother who made great pastry and pies, so it was a nice nod to her.

Humpf makes a return this week. He’s got a serious problem. He’s suffering withdrawals and packing a sad. Send him a wish if you’ve got the time and tell him to hang in there. Biccie addictions do pass ... Humpf

Okey doke,  nothing for it but to get cooking. Cauliflowers are a reasonable price again. Onions and potatoes are cheap, and that all helps balance the budget.
