It’s here! It’s here! Summer! It’s finally here!
This evening I arrived home from work to a 20oC garden bathed in glorious sunshine. It was heaven. If the weather forecast is to be believed the rest of the week should be similar. Wonderful.
But only a fool would believe the weather forecast in Scotland. This sunny moment had to be seized! And seize it I did. The box of marking I had intended on working my way through did not make it out of the boot of my car. Instead, I spent the evening lying in my garden examining blades of grass, ogling my moody neighbour’s fruit trees, reading about my favourite Botswanan lady detective and savouring every single sunny moment. Such a night deserved a summery supper. The following salad served with rye bread was perfect.
Tomato, Tuna and Butterbean Salad
