Mid-winter – a time to hunker down and keep out of the weather.
There is not much going on at this time of year, at least not much that we want to brave the weather for. And not much to blog about. I’ve been spending weekend afternoons trying out new recipes. We’ve enjoyed golden syrup dumplings, creamy leek and chicken pie, a delicious bacon and pumpkin pasta, and a melt-in-the-mouth lamb curry. Winter is the time for the comforts of home and comfort food.
Last weekend we made what’s going to be one of our last visits to Trev’s place at Mangaweka. While we were there we noticed a flock of wax-eyes enjoying a little mid-winter feast of their own in the kiwifruit canes.
