Steak sounds, Bramley and cold weather.

1. The chunk-chunk-chunk sound of the butcher dicing our stewing steak.

2. Stewed Bramley apple -- sour-sweet, syruppy and fluffy.

3. To sit under a rich red duvet reading a book about Antarctica. (Sara Wheeler's Terra Incognita: Travels in Antarctica is very good, by the way. She has a wonderful sense for selecting annecdotes; and a great eye for a weird landscape.)

  1. Nice set. #1 reminds me of my Dad - he has certain dishes that he claims as his to cook, beef bourguignon being one of them. Your description reminded me of his chopping the beef with a big cleaver.

    and #3 pleased me as this is one of the books on my wishlist, you know me and my ant/arctic enthusiasms.
