The arrival of some fab new textiles!
I have a shipment on the way from Turkey – lovely bedspreads, scarves and towels. It’ll be the first time I stock towels – I hope you’ll love them as much as I do!
The colder months are a great time to get into those boxes that have been lurking in dark corners for a while. I don’t like throwing stuff into the trash & give most things in good condition away – decluttering just feels so good!
Lots of soups
I love soups. And winter is the best time to cook & eat lots of them.
This ‘Quick carrot & sweet potato soup’ is a winner: quick to make, nutritious and full of flavour.
“Soup for Syria : Recipes to Celebrate Our Shared Humanity”
by Barbara Abdeni Massaad
I bought this wonderful book at the height of the Syrian refugee crisis a few years ago. It is a collection of soup recipes by acclaimed chefs and food writers who came together to help food relief efforts to alleviate the suffering of Syrian refugees. All profits from the sales of the cookbook are donated to help fund food relief efforts through various nonprofit organizations.
