Cake, Coconut and Rain

More cake this weekend. Coconut Lime and Almond.

Chocolate Almond and Coconut. I'm  possibly overdoing it on the coconut front....and on the sprinkles front...

 This one is to celebrate the birthday of a visiting sweet niece.....eaten with  gorgeous cake forks - a gift from her sister when she lived in Beirut.

And a birthday supper ....Green Beans, Garlic and Tomato, roasted Mediterranean vegetables with  fresh dill and fennel, Beetroot, Carrot, Feta Cheese and Roasted Walnut Burgers -thank you Happy Pear for that recipe - slightly adapted by me of course with the addition of cumin and fresh coriander in place of the cheddar cheese.

We followed it with a Coconut Rice Pudding and a Spiced Plum Compote.

Coconut again but it's such a wonderful substitute if you are reducing dairy products in your diet. And it's also very guilt reducing for me with my addiction to rice pudding.

More rain today.

The garden loves it and it's what I wanted today - to stay quiet at home and come back to myself after  so much recent busyness.

It seems that it rained on this day 7th August 2012 - as my new iPhotos album tells me. 
This picture just popped up on my screen without me looking for it... we were visiting Wells Cathedral....I remember that day well.
