Very easy supper last night: baked chicken (chicken, oil, salt & pepper) and Spanish rice (rice, oil, onion, tomato, garlic, oregano, salt & pepper).

I made late summer tomato-nectarine pasta (vegan). It’s basically just fresh tomatoes, nectarines, basil, and a bit of balsamic vinegar, lightly cooked and tossed with hot pasta. Simple, but delicious when the ingredients are in season.

I made some fresh sourdough naan to go with - so delicious hot and fresh off the pan!

Easy suppers the last two nights: bratwurst patties (on homemade buns) and hot dogs with chili sauce. I also made deviled eggs.

I’m making falafels to go with the leftover sourdough naan. I also made some tzatziki because I had the end of a cucumber lying around.

Mr LaT made some Bara Brith (Welsh tea loaf, but to me it's far more cakey than bready) today, what I didn't realise is this is fat free and uses just one egg.

It turned out really nice, very moist, just a smidge too sweet for my taste (but most sweet stuff is to me), so next time we'll throttle back a tad on the sugar.

I'm running low on my spiced pickled pears (which are just divine with blue cheese) so I'll probably make some more tomorrow. I also need to be thinking about picking some sloes if I want some sloe gin ready for Xmas.

Last night I made sourdough crust pizza topped with tomato sauce, onions, peppers, olives, sliced tomato, and mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses.

Tonight I made creamed tuna on toast, using sourdough bread I baked on the weekend.

Last night was baked ham with a cherry-almond glaze and potato au gratin. Salad to start, with my new favorite dressing, tomato vinaigrette.

I did beef stock in the pressure cooker this afternoon (let it cook while I was busy working), then I noticed that the tomatoes I bought were about to go off so I made tomato sauce as well.

For dinner, I made swedish meatball pasta. Husband normally likes this one but he really went crazy for it today - he kept saying how good it was while he was eating.

Used the leftover ham and potatoes to make a frittata.

Husband’s in charge of dinner tonight, but for lunch I made a nice pasta salad with asparagus, peas, sun-dried tomatoes, and a creamy Dijon-lemon kinda dressing.

The weather is starting to cool off a bit here, but I just really wanted to get one of those lovely summer salads in before we switch gears to fall/winter food - I have a sneaking suspicion that my food strategy for this winter will be “all soup all the time”.
