Something was whispering in my ear today, “Make earrings.” I ended up with about 25 pair. Good thing it’s Christmas, maybe I’ll sell them all this week!

A few days ago I made a fennel and apple salad after seeing The Chef at Home do one.

I never bought fennel before we moved here, cherimoya either. Wow, there are so many amazing delicacies to discover!

For this salad: Whisk together apple cider vinegar, olive oil, good grainy mustard, salt and pepper. Toss with a few apples, fennel bulbs and fennel leaves which have been chopped finely. It’s that easy, and the fennel loses it’s anise flavor when combined with the dressing, which is a plus if you don’t like anise. I ate the whole bowl- so refreshing and crisp.
