This is what I am doing today – among other things.
We have a grapevine – Simon’s pride and joy. I’m not much on grapes but then, it hit us: grapevine leaves! Dolmades!
Yes, we both love dolmades. I said I would make some. Simon insists that I said I would make them today.
So – thunder and rain coming down in buckets, and I mention to Simon that I think I will make dolmades tomorrow. He looks at me with utter disbelief: you said you would make them today!
No I didn’t.
Yes you did!
And you can guess where that went.
So Simon went out in the hugely pouring rain and cut leaves. Then he went to the store to get the few ingredients I didn’t have (allspice, mint, parsley…)
And I have just blanched the leaves.
I think we are having dolmades for dinner.
Lovely morning – Cathy and Nancy are in town and we had a super walk and garden visit!
