As part of our family tradition, we’ve got our first pies of the year at Goddards. We started doing this around 3 years ago and it’s my favourite thing of Autumn. They might not look so photogenic but trust me, they are delicious.

Yesterday we managed to get a little bit of a break from work and home stuff, we went to stare at the sea and had a delicious lunch. For sure if we can, we need more seaside trips.

Goodbye my little Skippy, you’ve been the absolute best friend, we will always remember you. Wherever you are now, we love you.

Just thinking about how nice it was our last dip in Brighton last week. It was a mega fun day out, having a picnic and jumping in and out of the water.

In this very warm day, I’m listening to Los Payos - Maria Isabel and feeling a bit nostalgic about my childhood summers.

Today’s lunch was just summer on a plate. Ripe and juicy peaches, sweet basil, avocados, amazing Italian pear tomatoes full of flavour and lovely mozzarella di bufala. You couldn’t ask for anything that tasted more like summer.

Just thinking about yesterday’s trip to the allotment to pick some berries, it was such a great treat. I’ve only discovered gooseberries about a year ago, they’re just so delicious sharp and sweet at the same time. For whoever that has not had them before, you’re missing out.
