Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links


Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links 15.11.21

TIG NEWSLETTER subscribers always love Weekend Links best—in fact, it’s also one of the most popular regular features on the site and I’ve often wondered what it is that readers like so much. This weekend was one of those cosy homebody types of weekends: a fire, some drinks, and P made Aubergine & Cauliflower Korma, a vegetarian dish with toasted cumin and coriander seeds, ginger, desiccated coconut and flaked almonds. It was delicious! It was from a comfort food cookbook that we ordered recently that is really good. On Saturday night, we took cut-crystal glasses to a secret garden by the river that only we know, and drank cava in the moonlight. It was romantic and the weekend went by too quickly and everything seems to be going by too quickly, especially since the sun is now sets at 4:00. I keep reading articles about people who get up at 4:30-5:00am and wonder how on earth this can be possible. On the owl/lark spectrum, we are definitely owls. I wonder if it’s possible to suddenly become a morning person?

This week’s links include romantic hotel rooms from around the world and belted down jackets for winter days; a  recipe for Maple-Roasted Kabocha Squash Wedges with Ricotta and Chili Oil; cosy eyelet-crochet scarves and much, much more.
