So after a very disappointing start to the year – rather an understatement – the summer came good after all.
Even in the UK we have enjoyed the best summer for years. Sadly it’s almost as though someone flipped a switch on 2nd October and we said an abrupt farewell to summer and hello to autumn, with chilly days, rain and wind.
However, back here in the Loire, we are hanging on to summer for just another few days. The weather is due to change to become cooler and more autumnal tomorrow, allegedly. Today, after a shaky start, the sun came out and we ate lunch on the terrace once again.
Anyway, this recipe is a good one for all those friends in the Loire who are wondering what on earth to do with a huge tomato harvest this year. Lucky things, for even though the summer was half decent in the UK, we have not done well for tomatoes, even in the greenhouse.
So if you are not truly sick of tomatoes yet, try this recipe. It’s called “airport potatoes” but could just as easily be called “airport tomatoes”. You can read all about it here. Only then will you find out what an airport has to do with it !!
