Figs plucked straight from the tree, plump, sweet and juicy, warmed by the sun. But if you have to settle, like me, for the ones from the supermarket this is a delicious way to put the sun back into them. A little honey and a sprig of thyme brings a real Mediterranean flavour to even the unripe fruit. Team that with a creamy honey and pistachio ice cream and give a last salut! to a wonderful Indian Summer.
Summer is tip toeing it’s way into Colorado. Usually by now, we all are complaining about how hot it is. Not this time around. This time we are complaining about how much it is raining and are comparing Denver to Seattle. It would appear that we are a complaining lot and I would not feel bad if you said it out loud. We just love how weird our weather is.
