A Bit of This and That

An early morning stroll through the Saturday Market yielded some much welcome rewards: a few prints by a local artist Gillian Gandossi for my sister’s upcoming birthday as well as a few pieces of pottery by Louise Goodman to add to my collection.

I enjoy cooking: the preparation, execution and, of course, presentation & eating! This varied set of small & medium bowls along with a serving platter are great to use for all of the above. Roasted red pepper & tomato soup with basil pesto; fresh honeydew melon; clean-up and a plate of dry potato & carrot curry with peas. Bottom photo: Louise at the Market

A New Year

A new year is upon us and, so far, it promises to be a very good one indeed! The skies have been cloudy, misty, foggy, clear and everything in between creating diverse opportunities in the photographic landscape of Salt Spring Island.

It is a time to reflect back on the year gone by, to sit by a warm fire and enjoy the deep quiet of the winter months. Stacking wood, cooking soups & stews in the kitchen and relaxing with friends and family for good food and good company! Cooking is another one of my passions and during these cold and dark times I find that spending time in the kitchen keeps me busy & warm and I am rewarded with a great feast at the end of my work: a win-win for sure!
