Fruit Cravings

It’s 70 degrees Fahrenheit in London today. Hot, but not hot enough for August! I’d like it to at least 80 degrees. Since the probability of that is slim, I’d to be in the Caribbean – in Montserrat to be exact. My time there in June was way too short and I didn’t get to eat enough fresh fruits.

I was quite pleased because I had actually set the whole thing up before I left. On the night of the event, the weather was just gorgeous and this brought out the gluttonous nature in me as I eat way too much food cooked by supposedly “celebrity” chefs. Oh, and let’s not talk about the Champagne and other assorted wines I drank — it was all a bit over the […]

A few months ago a casual acquaintance told me that reheated soup never taste as good as when you first make it. At the time I completely dismissed her opinion, however, after a recent helping, I am starting to come around to her way of thinking.
