Eat your greens!

Ye-hah!! We had enough beans to go with our pork chops today.
They are finally starting to come and the tomatoes aren’t far behind.
Tomato and bean pasta is becoming my specialty!

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! We have recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.

  3. Wow that’s quite the garden harvest you’ve got there. Would you consider posting your famous tomato beans pasta recipe?

    • It’s already in my blog somewhere but to save you searching:
      I like the tricolour pasta twists though you can use ordinary ones or the penne pasta quills.
      I chop up 2 or 3 tomatoes, 1 onion, a few green beans, some italian herbs and put them in a pan with a little water, stock cube and some garlic. I soak my pasta in boiling water then drain it off when my mix is ready and the tomatoes are soft, mix the two together and put it in an ovenproof dish. My allowance of 30g of cheese is enough for the dish size I use so I grate that and put it on the top. I bake it in the oven for half an hour at about 180 C.
      You can add mushrooms and peppers too if you like, but my quantities are just for me, so you could use however much you like and extra cheese to cover.
      Enjoy!
