Showered now and fed - feet up and second G&T at my elbow
Supper was splendid if I do say so myself - slow roast belly of Saddleback pork with the crunchiest crackling, roasted butternut squash with a drizzle of maple syrup, and cabbage braised in butter and white wine with fennel seeds and black pepper, with a tablespoon of creme fraiche stirred through it.
FG the baking was a Spanakopita pie (spinach, feta and ricotta with onion, nutmeg and dill, in a filo pastry case). We'll have it for supper with a tomato salad tomorrow with my cousins who are over from Tasmania (they're the ones who were in all the papers after the awful fire) and a glass of good French rosé.
We'll finish with the nectarine and raspberry cake - there's some creme fraiche if we need it.
