Picked a good weekend for it, I hope. Zucchini sott’olio combining @domenicacooks and @carla_tomasi recipes.

Slightly worrying; the new activity monitor (Xiaomi Mi-band 5) records 2846 steps to the 3000 of the old activity monitor (Garmin Vivofit). On the other hand, I have no good reason to trust the accuracy of the Garmin.

I’ve been playing around with grano arso, the burnt or smoked wheat that was the prerogative of the gleaner. Now you can just buy a bag. It makes a satisfying, velvety chocolate loaf with a definite smoky perfume. This one is 20% grano arso and 20% wholemeal at 70% hydration.
