It's marvelous having another Martin pair performing their morning ritual on the satellite dish outside our bedroom window.
Preening is a serious matter.
Princess Pearli has - happily - been around a lot. This was how her day began.
Yes there was a lot of washing going on...
No duck eggs this week
We are in the throes of a heat wave which is only going to intensify in the next few days, so salads it is. Last night's eggs were a combination of my friend's little free range and commercial. Visually, you can spot the difference because hers are smaller. They "behave" differently, too, in that they are easier to peel and the shells are harder. One had a hairline/toe crack which had no impact. Not so, the commercial egg.
Why the commercial eggs and no duck, even though they are in season? P is self-isolating. Her partner has covid. All things being equal, and assuming she continues symptom free, there could be more duck spam (just to annoy my Scottish friend) next week!
Oh, and notice the roasted pepper on the salad. It's going to be a thing for the next while.
Until next time, be well

If this post might seem familiar, it's because I'm doing two things:
- re-vamping old recipes. As I do this, I am adding them in a file format that you can download and print. If you download recipes, buy me a coffee. Or better yet, a glass of wine....?
- and "re-capturing" nearly two years' worth of posts.
- From Wordpress, I use the Exxp Wordpress plugin. If this rocks your socks, click here or on on the image below to sign up.
