Are the roses late and the snowdrops early, or are the roses early and the snowdrops late? As Tom says, it's all rather confusering.
In the kitchen however, I know where I am. A New Year's Eve feast to prepare. A picnic-style deli feast. I bought olives, hummus, roast peppers, cured meats and pitta bread. I made a lemony feta dip (a block of feta, juice and zest of a lemon, clove of garlic, glug of olive oil all processed together) flatbread, and some salted almonds.
And piles of meringues and chocolate-ginger biscuit cake.
Before I go here is December's sampler
and a round-up of the past year here at The quince Tree
Have a very Happy New Year!
