I love Beef Stew and as soon as we get a hint of Autumnal weather I’m keen to get my carrots and potatoes in the slow cooker. This stew also has cannelloni beans and onions with a rich tomato based gravy.
It is stonkingly hot here today in Hampshire so we are having a BBQ! These kebabs are made up of cubed pork shoulder with mushrooms, tomatoes and peppers and ground black pepper over. We are also having corn on the cob and ciabatta bread and some chicken thighs with a sticky sauce. Yum! I’m off to rescue some Prosecco from the fridge…
Lazy lunch today, mushroom and asparagus with cubed pancetta (cured pork belly) and tomatoes. Lots of ground black pepper too.
Baked avocado for supper this cold January evening. Filled with mushroom and tomato and topped with strong cheddar cheese they went beautifully with a warm seeded roll.
This salad has beetroot and prawn, cucumber, spinach and lettuce, tomatoes and grated carrot.
The salmon is dressed with herbs, especially parsley, and lemon, the salad includes spinach and tomatoes and the samphire adds a seaside vitamin boost to the dish!
Tomato salad with lunch today but extra special as I grew the tomatoes! We have had a rather gloomy and wet summer so I have been waiting what feels like an age for the tomatoes to ripen, but at last, in September, they are ready! I have big plans for chutney next!
I fancied a fresh clean lunch today, but it needed to be quick and fuss free. I put tomatoes, mushrooms, asparagus and broccoli in with cod and lots of herbs to bake in the oven, wrapped in a neat parcel of tin foil.
I am finding more and more often that I prefer rye bread, especially as an open sandwich with avocado or cream cheese and eaten with a knife and fork as the Danes do. It seems to suit me better and certainly sustains me for much longer than wheat bread or cereal. When we were on holiday I had rye bread in my picnic with tomatoes and it kept me going for ages.
This salad has all the odds and ends that needed eating up; avocado, pastrami, beetroot, sprouted beans, tomatoes, spinach, lettuce, pea shoots, mayonnaise, pepper and paprika.
First fruit and veg of the season! I must confess that I didn’t grow the beetroot, they were very kindly given to me by my next door neighbour but three Roy (thank you very much!). I haven’t grown cucumbers before and am really pleased with them. I have a feeling I will need a lot of courgette recipes soon…
