pumpkin and cinnamon mini pumpkin buns
... so this week i've been mainly sick with a proper cold.  It's lasted all week but I think it's been lurking in the background for a while.  I'm hoping that this is my big flu of the season and that I won't suffer again, which would be nice but who can sa...

hello Dominic. Sorry to hear you're not well and I hope you get well soon.
It's great you reference your mum all the time with reminiscences of her cooking and how it inspired you.
What about your father and all those shared hours over a hot stove - why doesn't he get a mention.
Just saying.
love
Dad xxx
ps see you soon in Belleau.

meringue wreath with mulled plums and pomegranates
