First up we have beetroot which has already found a regular place in our Sunday roasts. The remainder will be picked for roast lamb or hams later in the season.
Peppers - now, these, strictly aren't from our garden but from our riverford box that we get. We seem to have received a lot, so I am using a recipe from the internet to try a pepper relish.
Lastly odds and sods. Amanda, from Soulemama, inspired me here as she obviously lives in the same world as I do and all planning of meals seems to make a rapid exit into the sunset during the summer. I too tend to have hungry mouths all asking me 'what's for dinner' from around 5pm onwards and it takes until then for me to even 'think' about the evening meal, so I am learning to be spontaneous and make a quick and easy meal with lack of planning, using what we have in the garden and in the store cupboard that day:
courgette, eggs, chard, pepper, onion....
Omelette of course!
Our summer is flying by, we have done swimming lessons, been to our dear friend, Arthur's Christening, travelled overseas, played outside with water, played outside in the rain, been to the theatre in London, bickered, laughed, cried and laughed until we've cried and we still have much more to do. We have friends coming to stay, cousins coming to stay and grandparents to visit.
I love the summer time, despite the typical British weather!
How is your summer so far?
