Vegetables Galore!

I must apologise for the delay since my last post but I can assure you it hasn’t been for a lack of things to write about! One of my dear friends got married this week and I was privileged to be a bridesmaid. In the last week we’ve had a pre-wedding High Tea and Hens Party for which I did plenty of baking – I’ll write more about this later when I have some photos to show you! In the meantime, I thought I would give you a bit of an update from our vegie garden.

This afternoon I put on my gumboots and the biggest rain jacket I could find (yes, what a gorgeous summer we are having!) and popped out to the garden to get a ‘few beans’ for dinner. This is what I returned with…

Vegies galore

As you can see, we have an abundant supply of vegies at the moment! So, what to do with them all? Having already had a curry for lunch we felt like a light dinner tonight. I steamed the broccoli and beans, sauteed the leeks and made a tomato salad with feta, basil, red onions and a drizzle of balsamic. We enjoyed these with panfried crumbed Tarakihi and roasted potatoes.

As for the surplus vegies – I think I’m going to have to get busy blanching and freezing and giving a bit away!

It is such a thrill every time I go to the vegie garden 🙂
