The fun is never knowing what went in taste & add whatever. It really was nice.

Glad I am not the only one to do things like that. Very Happy

I find it hard to make 2 batches of soups the same as even with the same ingredients I add a bit of this and a bit of that, herbs, different levels of differently made stock, etc.

But that is all part of the fun! As long as it tastes good. its fine!

I don't have disasters, and its all nice to eat so...

I never make 2 the same, which can be a bit upsetting, especially when you make a cracker.

Friday night was vegetables according to Madhur Jaffery; Spicy grean beans (beans cooked with tomato, spices and lots of garlic) and potatoes, carrots and peas (cooked in a covered frying pan with oil, onion and cumin). French beans, tomatoes, garlic, onion, chillies, potatoes, peas and carrots all homegrown whats on the menu - Page 9 Icon_biggrin Sadly, for lack of a paddy field I had to use shop-bought rice ...

CM and I had a a lie in ( we were sans CG) and then had a "brunch" at 11.30 ish of smoked crispy grilled bacon, scrambled eggs, toms, mushrooms, toast and butter, fried potatoes and strong coffee.

Only do this occasionally but my! It was delish.

Am very hungry now, though!

Tonight had new pots, toms-courgettes-feta cheese bake, lamb chops from local prize winning butcher ( Dave Waller in Ledbury) and lovely green beans (Blue Lake - yummy and more sugar snap pea like than climbing bean!).

Lamb and Feta from shops, all else from garden.

I DO love this time of year!

Bedtime now...

How do you make your toms-courgettes-feta cheese bake? That sounds pretty tasty! Maybe you could share your recipe in the recipe forum?

Well its a bit hit and miss and depends on the produce available ( so might be more or less toms, etc, have onions in, or maybe a different cheese)

but yes, I can do that, if you like whats on the menu - Page 9 Icon_biggrin

Oh that would be nice.....don't worry about an exact recipe.....I don't often follow them, it is the basic concept or process that I am curious about......I am a true believer in a little bit of this and that!

I'm sure I already posted but it seems to have vanished. Anyway.....
oversized courgette stuffed with a mixture of red lentils, chopped up onion, garlic, bacon, red pepper and mushrooms, baked in the oven then topped with grated cheese followed by pie made with some of the lovely purple gooseberries I picked today.

With leftovers of both for tea tomorrow

Tomato courgette etc bake.

Soften sliced courgettes in oil, onions, garlic are optional as are mushrooms or indeed any other veg...

Transfer to an oven proof dish, add sliced toms beef ones are best but could use any fresh or drained tinned, or rehydrated dried if wished, but make sure they are rehydrated fully

Either zap in m wave for a bit until tomatos are cooked, then add cheese, breadcrumbs if wished and bung under grill untill cheese is toasted and melted


OR add breadcrumbs if wished, cheese ( any is nice but mozzarella is delish as is feta) and bung in hot oven for 20 mins or until toms are juicy and cheese is melted...could be 35 mins if you like.

Serve as a side or as a main depending on how much you made.

Still no ovens. Which I keep forgetting. Had counted on chucking in baked potatoes while we went out today but was disappointed to find they and oven still stone cold when I returned. So have made what Bea calls '5 alarm clock chilli'.
My children are so sweet sometimes. When we have chilli they alternate mouthfuls of chilli, rice and sour cream and frown at me and say "you've made the tongue-hurting meat again, Daddy!". But they do eat it all.
It is G von R who requests the dish I hasten to add, not me.
