Saturday was super busy with all sort of chores but Sunday turned to be bit wet and staying indoors sounded like an excellent idea.
Having finished Cranford which I enjoyed immensely (and I am even more impressed with Sue Birtwistle who managed to transform it into such captivating TV drama) I reached for a book that was waiting for me for few days, a fresh Amazon purchase skipping the queue of the long overdue books to read: Adrian Mole, The Prostrate Years. I almost devoured it in one go, as every other book from the series it is hilarious and heartwarming, it manages to capture all the things people get obsessed by. This is the first Adrian Mole book I read while actually living in UK which definitely does help in understanding a lot of the cultural references.
Books were not the only things I devoured, as the courgette gods keep giving I decided to bake Clotilde’s chocolate and zucchini cake (thanks Laura for pointing it out). It was delicious especially when cooled in the fridge overnight. I will be baking this one again!
The new season beetroots seem to be abundant as well and I made a classic Polish chilled soup which has got the most amazing color.
Now I can only look forward to the long weekend ahead, hopefully the sun will shine!
