We forgot that 15 August is a holiday, so our cupboard was barer than expected. Nevertheless, we managed to have a fresh fish dinner – pan-fried – with a mix of wild rice, rice and quinoa. The plan to add a green salad from the garden fell through when the skies opened and there were no volunteers to pick greens in the rain.
A nice enough supper, but bland enough to make us long for a bit of dessert or … ? Rummaging in the cupboards I found a bottle of apricot liqueur, just enough for 2 small glasses. But too warm to drink and, alas! no ice cubes in the freezer (a week of poor planning).
Luckily, I picked and froze several bags of raspberries, excellent ice-cube substitutes, and nice companions to the end of some 2013 Valais apricots.
