I love cooking fresh food for Alvar that requires minimum amount of preparation.
This evening we walked back from the alottment where we had picked one courgette, two large handfuls of french beans, a beaker of blackberries and some mint. I steamed the vegetables, mixed them with olive oil, lemon juice and mint and stirred the blackberries into some Greek yogurt and Alvar ate it whilst studying the planes and pigeons flying past the window. The evening was so warm and still and the sunshine a bit hazy. Beautiful.
