Books, Mist and Onions

09 Aug

Happy National Book Lovers Day!

Books by my Dad, the storyteller

I love this quotation from Neil Gaiman – “Books make great gifts because they have whole worlds inside of them.”

We were in Falmouth early this morning and drove around Castle Drive for the views. Today, we could scarcely see St Antony lighthouse.

Our onion harvest looks pretty but the rain has damaged them all so I am cooking them to freeze rather than the usual plaiting . I love how they look plaited up but these ones will not  be keepers, sadly.

    Speaking of book lovers and story- tellers, have you read ‘The Dictionary of Lost Words’ and ‘ The Bookbinder of Jericho’ by Pip Williams? Highly recommended!

    For once we had a beautiful clear day up here on the North Norfolk coast!
    Your onions look great. What a shame they won’t keep.

      Glad you had a beautiful clear day. The onions won’t keep but every time I make soup or a casserole or ragu , the onions will already be cooked! Will just have to remember to thaw in good time. 🙂
