If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea

If we were having coffee, or even a cup of tea, we would talk about the weather, and how nice it was to see the sun and bright blue skies.

If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea, I would offer you a piece of plum cake I made yesterday from the plums we brought home last week.

That I used a recipe I found at Kath Irvine’s Edible Backyard, that was so simple and yet so effective.  It used melted butter and so only a wooden spoon was necessary to mix everything together.

If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea, I would tell you that we went for a walk to town and the market this morning and saw the largest radishes I had ever seen.  And that on the subject of vegetables, I still had a couple of courgettes left over from last week that I was going to roast along with some slightly overripe tomatoes to serve with the salmon tonight.

Summer = courgettes

If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea, I would tell you that tomorrow I am starting a four week introduction to yoga.  I’ve never really taken to it before, being more of a Pilates person, but am going to give this a go.  I would tell you I managed a barre class last week, and managed to modify all the arm exercises to accommodate my bad shoulder.

If we were having….a pre dinner drink in the sunshine, we would try this new cider, infused with tea leaves from Zeffer.  It certainly is a nice, rich cider, though not sure I could detect any tea.  And as usual, I would ask you to stay to dinner, as there is plenty to go round.
