My darling boss bought a purple plastic jack-o-lantern to work the other day. I was thrilled to see it was full of lovely plump figs from the tree in her garden. She told a lovely story about it, explaining that her Labrador eats all the figs he can get at, so anything within the height of a Labrador’s bound is gone, and the dog has dreadful farts, but the fruits of the rest of the tree are up for grabs. When I lived in West Brunswick I had two lovely big fig trees that I miss dreadfully. Figs must surely be one of the great joys of the coming autumn. If they last that long, I love to eat them sliced on toast with honey and goats curd. It can also be delicious with good ricotta cheese, or even cream cheese, but is truly divine with this fabulous goat’s curd I buy from Capra, a small cheese maker based in eastern Victoria. A very dear friend of mine lives at the base of the Grampians in western Victoria. I visited her last weekend and she gave me the most delicious home-grown honey. We discovered a wonderful nut farm and cafe in Moyston called Grampians Grove. I bought some almonds from them. So, this particular dish is a delicious homage to fine ingredients, fine friends and fond memories.
- Another #delicious #dessert from my favourite @zeusstreetgreek This one was a beautiful #vanilla #custard wrapped in #filopastry I highly recommend it...and things are right in the world. It has been a dramatic evening to get home for the first night in over seven weeks. While it's only #overnightleave for now, I did have a good cry once I was fed and Mr Watson finally came back inside and curled up on my chest for loads of pats. With my pills, #pussycat and #Poirot the world was better again 😚💓 #igothitbyacar #homesweethomeOh how I've missed #northside food while I've been stuck in hospital on the southside. I finally managed to get home for my #overnightleave and ordered a #delivery of the #delicious @zeusstreetgreek #food. I got #lamb from the spit with lemon #tzatziki and #pitabread, a typically wonderful #seasonal #salad, and some #greek #doughnut with #honey
