    Supper: cauliflower, pear and blue cheese soup.

    Also, going to try to make some cannelés, some for a gift, some for us. Never made these cakes before. Look fancy but not too difficult.
    Ah Snoop, I think I might just change my garlic bread to "pa amb oli". We haven't had it at all this year.

    • We had roasted veg last night with our burgers and they were absolutely delish!
      Must ask what they added to them - very different from mine , but very yummy.
      Got me thinking of winter soups with croutons….mmmm

        With tomato we know it here as 'pa amb tomàquet'. After all the rain, I have lots of split toms to use up. Will roast some with basil too.
        Location: north-east Spain, where the sun is too hot, the rain too torrential, the hail too big, the wind too windy and the snow too deep. Last frost: usually mid-April, sometimes first week in May. First frost: mid-October.

          Pa amb oli is the Mallorcan version sold in just about every local bar. They grow a local variety of tomato (ramallet) that they string up and seem to keep well into Winter. Just wondering if they would grow in my greenhouse, if I can get seeds or if it would even make much of a difference. Hmmm. Just remembered one of the bars did it with thin slices of quick fried pork loin on top. I can't remember the name of the dish but I might have to have a go at cooking it this week now I can practically taste it.
          Snoop what do you do with your roasted toms after roasting? I tend to freeze them on the tray and then move them to freezer bags but wondered if there was any other local method of keeping them for winter?

            De Colgar (hanging) tomato seeds available from Real Seeds here: https://www.realseeds.co.uk/tomatoes_vines_big.html
            You should easily be able to grow them in your greenhouse. Ramallet might be a slightly smaller version, but essentially the same thing.

            I see they also have Rose de Berne seeds on this page. Total recommendation for these from me. They say they're quite large but ours have been medium-sized, even tending towards small now. My first year growing them. Will grow them every year from now on. They are really delicious and ripen early here (even before the Marmandes and quite soon after the Sungolds), which makes them a valuable crop to me.

            As for the roasted toms, I'll slip them out of their skins and freeze them. I also freeze whole tomatoes. I roast them (from nearly thawed) whole or halved in tray bakes or with fish. A welcome touch of summer intensity in winter. The usual way to preserve them here would be canned/bottled, but I'm not up for that this year. Maybe next.

                • Tonight I think ribs, either rice or couscous, sweetcorn, Padron peppers and a salad. (Veg subject to change depending what needs picking).
                  Grapes and cheese.
                  If the courgettes are going mad again I'll probably have a go at another chutney.

                            • We ended up having couscous not rice with the ribs last night as my husband had already put in his request for his favourite risotto tonight I did also make a few jars of a different courgette chutney.

                              So tonight is nibbles of olives, cucumber batons, radishes and little Sungold tomatoes. Prawn, courgette and pea risotto with sweetcorn on the side.
                              Crackers and cheese and grapes.
