Jammed Evening
www.alexandrino.com

Dear All,

I'm not feeling very fresh again this morning. I didn't get to bed before 1am. The thing is last Sunday we couldn't resist to a fantastic temptation called "Pick your own fruits", when we drove across the countryside. Result: 3.5 kilos of strawberries, 1.5 kilos of blackcurrants and 1.5 kilos of raspberries. And yesterday evening was show time in the kitchen. The outcome for both of us was 12 pots of jam + 1 big fruit tart + 4 little fruit tarts + 4 fruit mousse + still one bloody kilo of strawberries that need to be handled very soon, otherwise we'll have a weird rotten smell in the kitchen. The aim was to eat some of the desserts prepared, but my cooking technique of "1 for the cake, 1 for me" prevents me from touching any berry anymore in the following 24 hours. Wonder why I had to run to the toilet 4 times this morning already!!!

By the way if any of you is looking for holiday accommodation in Algarve ( Albufeira ) in August or September, please let me know. I can find you a nice one bedroom flat, fully equipped, 400m from the beach in central Albufeira, or another one bedroom flat with swimmingpool, 4 to 5 miles west of Albufeira, 800 metres from the beaches and 800 metres from a golfcourse. In a few days I will stick some pictures on my homepage www.alexandrino.co.uk . Interested? E-mail me or call me.

Have an excellent day

Alex
