Sunrise to supper


Yesterday's sunrise.

I have a love hate relationship with the view from the bedroom window. I love what I see, but I hate how it's ruined by the electricity and telephone lines.

And so the day began.

This is how it ended.


Princess Pearli, perched. Willing someone to sit on the couch and give her a lap.


This has to be one of the best batch of passata I have ever made. The dregs in the jar, and which didn't get on to last Friday's pizza went into last night's pasta.


I also added a dollop of yoghurt and fresh oreganum and topped it with a sprig and crispy bacon with hard cheese on the side.


Until next time, be well

Post script
If this post might seem familiar, it's because I'm doing two things:

  • re-vamping old recipes. As I do this, I am adding them in a file format that you can download and print. If you download recipes, buy me a coffee. Or better yet, a glass of wine....?
  • and "re-capturing" nearly two years' worth of posts.
I blog to the Hive blockchain using a number of decentralised appplications.
  • From Wordpress, I use the Exxp Wordpress plugin. If this rocks your socks, click here or on on the image below to sign up.

  • Join Hive using this link and then join us in the Silver Bloggers' community by clicking on the logo.

Humm passata 😋😋
I like Pearli so much. She seems to have so much attitude😻
It's a pity about the electricity and telephone poles but you despite that you have a great view out of your window.
Happy afternoon to you! 😊
