Four Seasons Find

Monday's are never my favourite days. I try my best not to let them get me down and approach them with a 'let's get this over with' stance. One thing is for sure the week is so much sweeter when Monday is taken care of.

As its a work day for me I do my best to get out for a brisk stroll at lunchtime. More often than not my feet take me to a few Charity shops. Today was no different and
my luck was in as I found a perfect copy of Margaret Costa's 'Four Seasons Cookery Book'.

I have heard it mentioned by many of my favourite cookery writers in terribly reverential terms- Laurie Colwin, Nigel Slater, and Nigella Lawson to name but a few. An initial quick flick through confirms that it will be much in use very soon. In fact as I turn the pages I'm contemplating 'Hungarian Apple Pudding' for dessert tomorrow night (my MIL dinner night, she loves a good pudding!).

I will let you know how it goes! Hope your Mondays have been bearable and the rest of your week is bright and happy. Jo x
