Food from the Week

Morning all!

I am loving this weather too much to sit in front of a screen, so I'll make it snappy today..

Eggplants from the garden to make....

Eggplant Parmigiana!  The Italian in me coming out... 

My Nonna would be proud.

More garden produce - I absolutely love having a vegetable garden.

Spelt pancakes for breakfast.  Yummo.

The sign of a Saturday or Sunday morning.

3rd round of that amazing Coconut Frangipane Pudding from my last post.


Salmon & Greens.  My perfect meal.

Roasting eggplant on the stove.

Soup to cure a cold (last weekend was a miserable one).

I like my risotto mushy.

Friday night feast - Rocket, pear and parmesan salad, honey carrots (from the garden), toasted peppered mountain bread, and fish cooked with tomatoes, mint, garlic and basil (all from the garden).


I hope you're all well & getting to enjoy this weather!

  1. Wow Nat, you're having some serious success with your veggie patch! We're planning to start one this year, so I'd love to see how you've set yours up! x

    1. Hey Sally! We got rail sleepers - we have two boxes made of them stacked two high so it's about a food off the ground. We're experimenting with the best positions for the plants, but we've definitely learned to prune tomatoes as ours have gone nuts! Would love to hear how yours goes x

  2. That photo of the cat...OMG ADORABLE!

    You're so lucky to have a veggie patch! I dream of one day having a backyard to do this!

    1. His name is Buckley, he is my sunshine :)

      Having a garden and the room to do things like a vegie patch is definitely an advantage of not living in an apartment.

  3. i've never made a rocket/pear/parmesan salad but it looks so good - i must try. weather here is soooooooooo hot :-)

  4. your garden is amazing, want!

  5. So much to love here. LOVE these posts, truly.
