What a beautiful Palm Sunday – absolutely gorgeous and I hope it is as gorgeous where you are?

All my windows are open and the air is warm. It was so, so lovely to be woken up by people mowing their lawns, birds singing and the sun peaking through the gap in the bedroom curtains.

It would have been a crying shame to have stayed in doors today, so time to fling open the bifold’s, clean the BBQ and celebrate that spring has arrived here, even if it is only for a short period of time (as the forecast is set to drop by 10 degrees tomorrow)


My garden is beginning to bloom. The blossom on the fig and apple trees is beginning to come into full bloom.

BBQ alight, couple of salads prepared…One inspired by James Martin, who I have had the pleasure of meeting when appearing on Ready Steady Cook – cauliflower cous cous salad –  A fantastic man and a brilliant cook, recipe can be found on line, if not listed in my recipes.       The other a typical Greek salad, my middle son’s favourite.

When we BBQ we are all guilty, I think, of preparing too many side dishes. Although they are needed, too many flavours can spoil the meat we have cooked.

Lamb chops  and fresh Tuna fillets sourced locally …


New potatoes served with butter and mint leaves from the garden, what could be more beautiful on this gorgeous day?

I hope you have all had a great spring day and have enjoyed some fabulous food with you family and friends.

Until the next time – have fun and enjoy the food you cook and share it with us all…

Love life and food…

See you soon xxx
