First Passion Flower, Meeting and Caponata

09 Jul

1   The passion flower has given us a beautiful bloom at last. Yesterday’s bit of sun must have encouraged it – as it did all of us!

2   An ex-pupil of mine is on holiday in Cornwall with her partner and wanted to meet up which was really sweet of her. We had a lovely time over coffee in The Gylly Beach Cafe in Falmouth catching up after six years. What a beautiful young lady (inside and out) she is now at 22!

3   Last delicious dish made for the reunion week – Sicilian Caponata which is beautiful and very colourful, will serve as a side dish for the meat eaters and is substantial enough to be a stand-alone veggie dish when served with some tasty bread.

    Beautiful pictures as always and how nice to get caught up with one of your former pupils – that speaks volumes of you as a teacher! Can’t wait to try Sicilian Caponata it looks hearty. Blessings – Patty

      Thank you. In fact, L said as much which was really heart-warming! I’ll put the caponata up as soon as the family have all left in a whole week! Can hardly believe this is happening! We haven’t all been together since 1993! 🙂

    Catching up with a student after years is truly beautiful. From the student a lovely tribute to the teacher. Trust you enjoyed the coffee. 🙂

    Yes a very nice set of three as always,
    of course more special in the sense that
    there are some warm moments, sweet
    memories and another yummy looking
    dish to make my mouth water 🙂

    The reunion is bound to be exciting 🙂
