how very Gemini…

I’ve been silent here this week- unusually so. What’s more unusual about this silence is that with the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter in Gemini, silence is a little hard to come by.

Total Eclipse…and all that…

As I write this, I have half an eye on a piece of pork belly that I am attempting to blister the crackling on before pouring milk into the pan to cook it slowly. Scented with sage, the milk will tenderise the meat so it should melt off the fork. I’m serving it with thyme […]
