Fig and Black Pepper Flatbreads

The Fig and Black Pepper Flatbreads (via the BBC Food site and Lesley Waters) are extremely good. I can imagine eating them with a nice ripe Brie or dunked into a baked Camembert or a cheese fondue. Today we ate them with a hot salad and griddled Halloumi, with a lentil dressing.

I was scraping the bottom of the barrel when I investigated the ‘fridge. I had an aubergine and a courgette and half a red onion, plus four mushrooms. I tossed them in olive oil with a scattering of cumin seeds and some dried thyme and roasted the lot in the oven. Piled into a bowl, slathered with the lentil dressing and topped with the Halloumi cheese, the whole lot was very tasty.

The breads will be made again, and preferably while I have remaining stocks of the wonderful PARAMESWARAN’S SPECIAL WYNAD PEPPER. The wonderful fragrance in the warm bread – sensational.
I’ve seen the weather forecast, so I am not going to town tomorrow. It’s spinning group on Thursday, so I’ll go shopping on Friday.

(OMG – I have Strictly on as I write this. Matt Goss? It takes me back to when I had a Bros-mad teenager in the house. Never, ever want to go there again.)

I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
