And result in a ridiculous number of photographs (hurrah for digital cameras).
It’s only natural that the ensuing inspiration should cause some discomfort when I am unable to purge what is building up creative-wise.
It’s only natural – given that lack of hours currently unavailable – that I should dream large and consider an exciting collaborative project (which should be more carefully structured before I go spilling it all or approaching anyone).
It’s only natural – given that I have known this fabulous elegant, eloquent and fascinating lady for over 20 years that I would get excited when she starts a blog. Go Pinners!
And speaking of natural – I don’t think you can get more naturally fabulous than Labne.
You need one tub of greek yoghurt, a clean dry teatowel, some string and olive oil.
Lay the teatowel over a bowl and spoon the yoghurt into the middle. Draw the edges up so you have a bag – fasten with string and hang over a sink or bowl to drain overnight – or into the next day if the weather is not too hot. You will lose about 20-30% in water, and will be left with an amazingly un-yoghurt like substance with the texture of cream-cheese.
Roll into balls with your hands and place in a bowl. Cover with olive oil, put in the fridge and use within a week.
Fantastic on toast with sun-dried tomato, with any kind of roasted vegetable in a salad, as substitute for sour cream on baked potatoes or even on it’s own in pita bread as a snack.
And now I’m hungry. Naturally.
