It’s hard to believe that we are mid-way through August already. 2021 is whizzing by at incredible speed. Before I catch my breath, it will be September!
This weekend started with an in impromptu gathering of old friends/colleagues. We all share a love of food from the team at Honey & Co, so when they invited me for lunch, I couldn’t say no, could I?
We started with the sharing menu
Yemeni style falafel with cucumber, chilli & mint salad, tahini
Creamy hummus, chilli garlic dressing, chickpeas, zehug & pitta
Labaneh with roasted courgette, pine nuts & herb salsa
Aubergine badargani – rolls of roasted aubergine filled with caramalised onions, pomegranate molassas & walnuts
Flat white peach & goats’ cheese salad, almonds & orange blossom dressing Cheesy bouikos, house pickles, Kalamata olives, bread & olive oil
For my mains I chose the pomegranate molasses roasted chicken and for dessert, chocolate terrazzo cake.
I thought I would be uncomfortably full after all the food. I was not. I was pleasantly full. I was content and my heart was full of joy. It was not just the food but the company. I have not seen these ladies since last year and it was so nice to see them face to face, to chat and laugh. We seemed to laugh all afternoon, it was such a nice feeling.
I hope we can meet up and do this again.
