Things That Happened Today

Today I met some lovely people for brunch at the splendid new Place to Be in South London, The Dish and the Spoon to eat food made specially for us by the very awesome GinandCrumpets.

I ate this delicious sandwich-all-tied-up-with-string (stilton and gooseberry chutney - yum) and sampled many other tasty baked goods.

All foods were delicious and the place (and the company) were delightful - you must all go as soon as you possibly can. Maybe tomorrow.

I followed this up with a complimentary indoor cycling class, courtesy of the nice people at Boutique Sport and Boom Cycle. It was fun - I shall definitely go back, if only to use my free class voucher. And there were party bags. That's my kind of exercise :-)

When I got home, I discovered that my sourdough starter had 'escaped' somewhat... This is not the first time something like this has happened. It's a bit unruly.

I forgave it and made some into a lazy (but good) loaf of bread.

Later on, we ate something a bit like ratatouille with some liver fried with shallots. I love liver. It makes me happy.


  1. That bread looks amazing! Actually it all does, but your loaf especially.

    1. Thanks Lisa - it was a REALLY easy one - I just mixed it up, forgot about it for four hours or so, then remembered, kneaded briefly, left again and baked :-)
