This week’s small pleasures #90

Well, who could believe it?  Part 90 of this week’s small pleasures….and here they are.  Hope you have had a good week, with some nice things to look back on.

Autumn fruits

Looking back on Instagram, I found I posted an almost identical photograph this time last year.  Guess it is that time of year, and I love these fruits grouped together.  These came from Commonsense Organics, where you can pick up three bags of fruit for $10.

Fruits of the season

2 Autumn vegetables

Cavolo nero, swiss chard (red and yellow), silverbeet, cabbage, pumpkins….and even beetroots.

A massage, a nice lunch out at Field and Green, a Netflix afternoon and a roast chicken for dinner.

Karl’s lunch – a fish finger sandwich, though not your usual fish fingers
Smashed peas, avocado, preserved lemon, parmesan, poached egg and toast for me

Blue skies!

  1. You can just cut them in half and eat them with a spoon, or use them in chutney, ice-cream, cakes…they have a sort of scented taste, like pears mixed with a sort of floral overtone. Sounds a bit strange, but they are so good!
