Colorful salads

We enjoyed two beautifully bright Ottolenghi salads over the past two days: Sweet and sour celeriac and swede (rutabaga), and Chargrilled asparagus, courgettes (zucchini) and manouri. I made a few tweaks based on what ingredients were more accessible (zereshk instead of sour cherries, and haloumi instead of manouri) but otherwise stuck pretty close to the recipes. Both salads were as tasty as they looked!

Saving energy

We recently had smart meters installed. It seemed like a small thing at the time (it was a free installation as part of a larger national initiative) but I’m finding myself checking the display throughout the day and considering tweaks to my energy habits. I guess it was a meaningful change! #thepowerofdata
