It’s the last long weekend before Christmas and while that feels like a really long time away, we are almost down to the last quarter of the year already. How do you feel about the end of summer? The expectation of spring and summer and all that travel feels like a distant memory, maybe even another year ago because through the thick clouds London is telling all of us that ‘winter is coming.’
Before the rain set in, a friend and I managed to make it to the nicest seaside I’ve yet visited in England. The almost clear skies and hot sun only lasted briefly, but it was the nicest way for us to enjoy the last summer holiday. Our long train journey to Margate allowed for catching up over snacks and the excitement of going somewhere new, even just for a few hours. Something we have decided we must do more often.
Trying to hold onto the warmth of summer for just a little longer means using these fruits that were left in my fridge and making a vegan, guilt free crumble that is perfect for dessert or even breakfast. If all else fails this crumble will help the feeling of summer stay a little longer. I hope you had a great weekend.
