This calzone worked a treat with a ratatouille with mozzarella and fontina cheese. The oven is gas fired but comes with a smoke box which was great for pizza.

Within one week we have gone from 38°C heat to solid days of rain, central heating and 10°C. I had predicted that once the tank was plumbed in that we would have a 5 year drought but gladly I was wrong :) I think we have had 5 days of rain now and we have small streams running by our house down the garden.
On the news we currently have fires and floods in Australia. The weather is very strange...
Check out the red level indicator on the side of the tank though!! Yippee.

But it has all been worthwhile. We have an enormous crop of (green) tomatoes just waiting for another week or two of sunshine to turn red and flood us with more tomatoes than we know what to do with. Plus the rhubarb is going mental, although also yet to turn red, the zucchini (that's courgette for you Poms) has lots of flowers but no fruit just yet, the leeks are growing tall and the herb garden on the balcony is lush with basil, parsley, sage, thyme, rosemary, marjoram and even lemongrass.
I love having a garden again!
