What a delight to be home for a weekend. Nesting ~ painting, cooking, stitching, and watching those long afternoon shadows. I delved into a new cookbook, which I picked up in London ~ Skye Gyngell's A Year in My Kitchen. Fabulous recipes and some seriously stunning photography (by Jason Lowe). The recipes are organized by season, which I love ~ making it easy to take advantage of local produce at market. Her cauliflower gorgonzola soup is on the menu for this evening, and I have already ordered her latest book: My Favourite Ingredients. Gyngell is the chef at Petersham Nurseries, which does indeed look like the perfect destination for "serious foodies" (!!).
And sweet William came into the world at 12:34am on Saturday. I was delighted to be his very first visitor!
