Another homegrown meal

Well, apart from the fish which came out of the freezer!
We’d pulled our potatoes and the tomato plants in the same bed, which has now been dug over and sprinkled with grass seed. The tomatoes there were all green and taken up to the chutney lady on the prom, and two of the potatoes needed to be used, so I had them for my dinner along with some green beans which are still coming!
I fancied parsley sauce something Hubby doesn’t like and did it in the microwave.
I put a teaspoon of cornflour in a mixing bowl, added about half a cup of milk and a good shake of dried parsley. I cooked it for about a minute then took it out to make sure it didn’t go like wallpaper paste or all lumpy, stirred well and put it back in to finish and keep hot.

Hubby had his wedges and mixed veg so a full freezer meal for him, and I added a couple of tomatoes to third out my plate to complete the home produce.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    From yard to table is a great way to get your food fresh as possible.

    • Hi Tony! We have done very well with our home produce. I have loads of green beans in the freezer, and we froze some of the first potatoes for stews rather than throw them away just because they’d been speared with the fork. Tomato and bean pasta today, so another home produce meal.
