I have coffee, I have cake, and I am listening to The Noisettes as I sit down to read another chapter of my book.
Earlier this week I posted this picture on my INSTAGRAM feed (Instagram and Pinterest are my top procrastination vices!) And yes, I was bragging a little about our first harvest of olive oil – it was such a wonderful experience loading up our olives and taking them to the local press in November last year, and then proudly picking up the motley collection of old water bottles filled to the brim with our very own organic oil.
But just to prove to both you and myself that it was not just about a pretty picture I really did bake that cake, using that olive oil!
Another success from my current favourite cook book Palestine on a Plate: Memories from my mother’s kitchen .
I have a lot of cook books on my shelf but a few are used more often than others, and this is one of them.
This week I succumbed (yet again) to great packaging and was rewarded with great flavour – and a wonderful story that comes with the coffee from Girls Who Grind Coffee, an all female Coffee Roastery that supports female farmers and producers. Read more about their story and their coffee on their website HERE
I ordered the Rwanda Nyabihu – a coffee produced by the Vunga Cooperative in Rwanda.
Good Coffee doing Good things!
I am also never without a book either on my bedside table or my kindle , and at the moment I’m reading Lullaby by Leila Slimani who recently was awarded the Prix Goncourt for this unnerving thriller.
I have decided that the weekend is coming early chez moi – I have coffee, I have cake, and I am listening to The Noisettes as I sit down to read another chapter of my book
So remember – take time to sit down and simply smell the coffee
