I don't feel the least bit creative when I feel sad. And I have been feeling very sad since February 22nd - the earthquake, the horrible loss of many lives, the loss of my job...it all add to it. However since going to the Memorial last Month i am finally feeling like my old self - I've done my grieving for Christchurch and I'm ready to greet the new Christchurch which will grow from this tragedy.
I've also made Harvest Tomato Sauce - from tomatoes in my own garden I might add. A great feeling of achievement making that - I have another batch to make tomorrow. The sauce is delicious with pasta; it also gives a nice boost to a casserole and is delicious as a base for eggplant .parmigiana.
The recipes for the Lemon Curd and Harvest Sauce are from this fabulous book which I got as a gift for Christmas.
Sophie Gray I have all her books and they are fantastic. I'll reveal some of my favourites another day. Got to go - teas ready and there are yummy Blueberry and Lemon muffins for after - heaven!
