Saturday breakfast rolls: brown grated apple with maple syrup and ground ginger.
Today's lunch: fillets of seabream brushed with egg and milk and coated with polenta seasoned with smoked paprika and salt, panfried in olive oil, served with cut limes; with steamed samphire with melted butter and Pink Blush tomatoes sliced and dressed with pomegranate molasses and sumac.
This week's bread: basic brown (half and half strong white and wholemeal flour) with toasted wheatgerm and sunflower seeds, a smidgen of molasses, a dash of macadamia oil. V tasty.

But how much do I hate those Summer Reading this-is-the-silly-season/new-book-drough
These are always weighted heavily towards SRS new books critically-acclaimed, with a leavening of classics, either re-reads or ooops, never got to (okay, props to the couple of people who are spending the summer in Middlemarch).
No-one ever cops to intending to spend the summer re-reading some beloved series beginning to end, or relaxing their mind with the complete adventures of Miss Marple.
Hello, folks - this is the summer? this is the holidays? Kick back and chill out!
Also, what is with the 'two or three books I shall be taking away with me'? Don't any of these people read faster than that? (or maybe that's why the stodgy earnest tomes...) Not to mention, don't any of them have e-readers? I can now go away with a nice selection of reading matter ranging from Angela Brazil to the new study of the operation of the Contagious Diseases Acts in Kent and Sussex, pretty much something to suit any mood that I am likely to be in and the potential to go online and order something else should that not be case.
Also Should you finish every book you start? Why is this even a question?
