One of the things I can’t get over, is how much sleep I am having. I seem to be tired all the time and am sleeping for hours longer than usual. They say lots of good sleep helps lose weight, I am hoping, but not seeing any signs of it. Must be the sea air. Yesterday we sat on the pier which is a favourite thing to do and after all the sea breezes, we were both kernackered. Its 10:32 and Matt is already in bed and I am shortly going to join him.
I do want to tell you about our visit to Circa 81 for lunch yesterday, another delightful restaurant. I had a sample of jamon serrano from Spain. I remember that ham with longing, my parents had a large leg of it hanging in their kitchen and whenever we dared we would sneak a slice or two of it; even in Spain it is very expensive so you can imagine how much it would cost in North America. I haven’t had any in over 35 years and it is delicious. Matt had a crab cake sandwich and I had a Moo and Brie, i.e. thinly sliced Angus beef with brie baked on a bread roll. With my lunch I had home made chips which were delicious. I had wanted edamame succotash too but only one side. Matt didn’t want a side so I ordered the succotash. It was delicious so I asked for the recipe and was given it. I then googled and there are all kinds of different versions on line.
tomatoes (optional, seedless)
1. Take equal parts of edamame and corn, can be frozen, dice onion, peppers, carrots and tomatoes and sauté in olive oil or butter for about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and add mint leaves for service
