It hasn't been too bad down here but I haven't been outside that much today.
I'm always ready to try something new so when I came across this tamarind fruit in Asda the other day I bought a packet. If I had put on my glasses and read the read the description on the packaging I would have seen that even though tamarind is sometimes known as the Indian date it's not something you nibble on. Rather sour and full of bits! I found more information on line. You pour hot water over the fruit and use the resultant liquid to flavour curries and dhal. Peter says he'll give it a go sometime.
On the other hand the Castello blue cheese bought for the give away price of 10p for a Camembert sized round is just delicious. Imagine a creamy ripe brie with a sharp blue vein. Gorgeous on wholemeal bread with fig and apple chutney. Apart from eating I've pottered around tidying up and playing the piano (without the cat this time).
