Lettuce, chives, tomato, grapes, green olives and basil
Shred the lettuce and the basil leaves and chop the chives and paprika
Mix together with the tomatoes, grapes and green olives
Cube some good quality cheese and add
Top with a dressing of your choice and sprinkle the basil flowers over
Dish up. I had ice tea, but then I always have ice tea.
Soft lettuce and chives
Aubergine and walnuts
Steak or another pan fry cut
Ketjap manis (Indonesian sweet soy sauce) or balsem vinegar
Mixed herbs, rosemary, thyme and parsley will do
Garlic, if you are a fan
Pan fry the steak
Slice the eggplant and fry in the same pan
When your meat is done, take it out and finish cooking the aubergine to take on the flavour left in the pan
Cut the aubergine smaller and slice the steak
Shred the lettuce, chop the chives and slice the radishes while the meat and eggplant are cooling
Mix everything together and add the walnuts
If you have juices left in the pan, add them to the salad together with olive oil, ketjap manis or balsemic vinegar and the herbs.
Mine was only a small salad for one, make as much as you need to feed your people.
Winston Churchill’s country seat in February at Chartwell, Kent
Sète, a harbour town on the French mediteranian coast, not far from Montpellier.
I have stopped carrying a camera, which was clearly a mistake. The phones are fine for normal conditions, but when you have severe light conditions they don’t cope as well.
The lines again.. I didn’t cope as well with the severe conditions either. Despite booking for a month in Montpellier I left after ten days. It was just far too hot. They advertise the town as green and cool, but boy are they wrong. I don’t have a single photo of the town in Montpellier, simply couldn’t wait to get back indoors.
It was a little cooler on the day I visited Sète, my only day trip, so we have a few photos. Quite a pretty town.
Wish I had one of those sailboats..
Perhaps the most beautiful cape on Sardinia, the Coda Cavallo.
Not far from San Teodoro is the horse’s tail cape, if I am translating right.
The road looks like it’s leading nowhere, so I turned back on the first attempt.
Glad I went back.
