A quick autumn lunch in the garden
Brighton was completely wet yesterday - very heavy rain for much of the day. Today however it couldn't be more different. The sun is back and it is a beautiful autumn day. Lunch was a quick celery soup eaten on the garden bench. The celery was the remains of last week's veg box and had lost its firmness. Cooked with the white part of a leek in a little butter and olive oil, I just added some vegetable stock, creme fraiche, black pepper and a sprinkling of fresh lemon thyme. Perfect!
