Diary of the Plague Year: Day 98 21 June 2020: Midsummer’s Day

J came down from Froe and we had an impromptu Midsummer Dinner.


Chop an onion
Fry in olive oil
Add two tins of chopped tomatoes
Add capers
Add kalamata olives
Teaspoon of turmeric
Add three cloves of garlic

Simmer for an hour on low heat.

Served with grated Pecorino.

I had bought a good bottle of St Emilion from Lidl.

Considering it was Midsummer’s Day the weather was not great but at least it was not raining, at least, not much.

Amongst other things, mainly about books, talked about a film we had both seen “Mia Madre” by Nanni Moretti and La Strada and La Dolce Vita.
