My lovely daughter Rose made this dish for us all, we loved it, full of fresh flavors, filling and it just looked amazing on the plate.
She peeled and grated about a kilo of Potatoes, added a cup of Gluten Free Flour, a couple of beaten Eggs, Spring Onions and Salt & Pepper. This mixture was fried in a non-stick pan to make Rosti style pancakes.
In the meantime, thinly sliced Eggplant was grilled, Tomatoes were sliced and oven-roasted and Red Onions were sliced and gently fried.
All of this was tossed together with baby spinach, seasoned and piled on top of the pancakes.
We ate and enjoyed every bit and I appreciated a night off!
Thanks Rosie! xxx

After much impatient watching and waiting we finally have berries from the garden ready to eat, not buckets of them. but certainly enough to decorate a birthday pavlova for my husband!
It was indeed a proud moment presenting this beauty, made with eggs from our charming chooks and berries from the backyard!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVE! XXX

The weather is finally warming up and I'm planting, planting, planting! There isn't actually all that much to eat from the garden at the moment which left me with a bit of a dilemma when it came to working out what to take to food swap this month, I had used a heap of eggs making a lovely egg and bacon pie for Friday night dinner, I then put the few that I had left into a Vegetable Slice to take as a contribution to the Harvest Basket anniversary lunch which was on after the food swap, so eggs weren't an option. I ended up making some Rosemary and Capsicum Bread Sticks, I took some of a batch of Jam Drop bikkies and a couple of jars of Curried Cauliflower & Carrot Pickle, some Curly Kale and some Vietnamese Mint
I came home with, a jar of Apricot Chutney, 6 Lemons, 3 Pumpkin seedlings, an Angelica plant, 2 Lettuces, 3 baby Artichokes, some Cherry Tomato seedlings and 3 baby Beetroots.

I picked a small colander full of beans, podded them and blanched them in boiling water for 3 minutes.
After slipping the beans out of their skins I processed them with a good squeeze of lemon juice, a clove of garlic (crushed) and some salt and white pepper, I added some olive oil until it was a good dipping consistency.
Although I do think they are a bit labor intensive with all that blanching and peeling, I have decided that I rather like Broad Beans!
