Back in the Massif after a week-long work trip to the UK, the order of the day is to find some Kurdish recipes to offer some friends this week. My usual infallible searches of the internet haven't found a great deal, although I'm looking forward to the spicy red lentil soup.
I'm also heading outside for much of the weekend to take full advantage of the incredibly mild temperatures (14C of a morning and 20+C of an afternoon), and the lovely light and autumn colours. My garden also needs some TLC. There are still tomatoes ripening amongs the flowers, and we took another half dozen courgettes in yesterday. It's hard to equate that with the first snowfall of the winter that was falling this time last year. Long may it last!
