Earth Hour

Earth Hour

Marked Earth Hour for the first time. It's a noble initiative, not for the fact that it saves light for an hour, but that it makes you think. Think about what you can do to conserve on a daily basis.

It made the food better. More emphasis on taste. I cooked - salad of orange peppers and strawberries over balsamic vinaigrette, paired with a 1994 Schloss Schonborn Riesling. Followed by braised rabbit in oyster mushroom sauce, paired with a 2006 Luna Beberide Mencia, and a 2003 Marques de Velilla Crianza. Wasting nothing, all the rabbit bones went into a simmering pot, to make a delicious broth. Finished with a strawberry chocolate mousse cake and vanilla ice cream.

Eating over nothing candlelight makes the flavours more intense, more warming. And it makes everything so romantic.........great to be in the dark, all snuggled in close. Nice. We should have Earth Hour more often.
