There's certain foods that give you a sense of well being such as stews and soups in the dark cold winter months, but nothing beats the coming of summer food, yes I know its only the middle of February and there's many cold below freezing nights to come, I know there's going to be rain and winds, but today it is warm and sunny, a chance to feel good.

I made a flan, tomatoes, Mozzarella, chives and basil, on puff pastry, a drizzle of Balsamic vinegar before and a drizzle of olive oil after its cooked, a simple salad of lettuce and cucumber, sliced onions, olives and peppers, crunchy bread and a cheap sparkling wine. What's not to like.
