October 2023 will forever go down as the month that divided the world. A terrorist group slaughtered innocent people, because of their beliefs. Had this happened anywhere else in the world I feel everyone would say the terrorists were in the wrong. But because it is about Israel and Jews, this is not the case. I am very clear that I believe all lives matter. And the death of one innocent person is one death too many. But I am seeing bigotry from friends and people I have known for decades. It has put a damper on everything and I can only pray for everlasting peace in a place where Jews have lived since the 2nd millennium BCE.
Recipes shared in October 2023
Heading into the last stretch of recipes for one dish, I got the ramen noodles done for my chicken ramen. One meal with friends saw me making a fish curry. Two Italian dishes graced our table. The first being linguine alla vongole, and the second was melanzane alla Siciliana. I made Japanese mayonnaise which I needed for another recipe. And I baked fig biscuits using my recipe for Garibaldi biscuits. I devoured the ricotta ice cream and as it is so good, I will be making more.
Going on holiday
Dave and I went to The Netherlands to spend time with Mark and Eva. It was wonderful to see where they live, and to all be under one roof enjoying each others’ company. I am very mindful that this was a privilege. They sorted out a room for us which was perfect. Meals were shared in the kitchen, and new places explored. We took pleasure in being able to spend time as a family eating out, shopping and sightseeing. I will be focussing on the happy memories we made.
This is my November submission to the #IMK series hosted by Sherry. Each month bloggers around the world gather to share what is new in their kitchens.
