I am back…

Puttanesca Revisited (7034)

I have been away for a little over a month now. This long break has been totally unplanned. I returned to Surrey yesterday night and barely had the time to settle down; I still feel dazed and tired, since my visit to Malta has not been a holiday. So you will forgive me if I don’t give you any particular recipes today. I didn’t want to leave you without posting a foodie picture though, especially because running Chorizo & Thyme has been a joy and always will be. No matter what. And for that I thank you.

For me, pasta is comfort food and comfort is what I need right now. I love pasta alla puttanesca, mainly for its strong tastes and easy to find ingredients, and yes – for its simplicity.

On a positive note, thank goodness for the cooler weather! I can now bake and cook whatever I want once again!

Guildford Market and a little haul…

Herbs (7950)I just wanted to share with you some photos I took this week during a little adventure at Guildford Market. I’m ashamed to say that I haven’t visited often, but I must do so from now on. Guildford High Street is charming anyway, and something of a shopper’s dream, but on the first Tuesday of every month (except in January) you can buy those little treats that make it even more special. As my lovely neighbour suggested, I could have nibbled my way up through the stalls. I wish I could. I would have been set up for the day, but I didn’t. I will next time though! Bread, cheese, jams, cookies, pastries and a chorizo and chicken paella…what do you think?

And since I love all things lavender, I got these. I *must* go back…
