Really simple and quick apple and marmalade tarts to help pass the time as the snow slowly deepens here. Nothing spectacular to look at, but delightfully tasty.

Amsterdam and Burgers

October 12, 2022

.

Tonight, the Everloving and I had our first date night since the plague began, and we went to the movies. We saw Amsterdam.

David Russell’s movie is brilliant, anarchic at times, beautifully written and crafted, and superbly cast down to the smallest bit parts. I will definitely watch it again sometime.

After the movies we had really good burgers at Earls next to the theatre.

A fine night out!
