Tiny Socks, Warm Bath and Pea Souk Cafe

30 Jun

1  A friend saw my little golden-boots in yesterday’s post and sent me this picture. What beautiful little socks and such skill of the maker to whom I send the utmost admiration! Do click to see the detail.

Tiny socks

2   I love this beautiful advice sent to me today by a young friend.  Putting them in water if they are crabby is such brilliant advice! A warm bath works wonders!

How to really love a child

3    We’ve been out to eat tonight at the most amazing little vegetarian restaurant, Pea Souk in Falmouth. What a delicious spread and everything freshly prepared and all grown here in Cornwall if not right there in Falmouth.

Bruschetta of Mozzarella, pea shoots, homegrown rocket pesto and radishes

Indian plate of Keralan green pea cakes, coconut, spinach and fresh curry leaf broth, aloo gobi, rice, carrot salad

Delicious Key Lime pie

    What a good post today – I am starting to think eating vegetarian is fun – those dishes look delicious. No vegetarian restaurants here so I will have to fix them myself. I see a trip to the library to check out some cookbooks. ~ Patty

      We aren’t vegetarian but there are lots of delicious veggie recipes that we enjoy and a veggie restaurant is a really good way to discover new food. You could try this website, which I use a lot, to find some recipes to try before you buy!
      Have fun! 🙂
