Fresh from the mint

Our mint has gone nuts in the junk plot at the bottom of the garden, so today I picked a couple of leaves and made myself a minty potato and ham salad.

It was quite straight forward and apart from cooking a couple of spuds, didn’t take long to prepare. I had another couple of radishes too, so they went in the mix, as did a carrot ad some diced up mint leaves to add a bit of ‘punch’.
We’d bought a pack of ham trimmings the other day and some of the slices are thick enough to have as a breakfast, so that will be tomorrow, but this was my meal today, and it was scrumptious.

The picture on the right was taken with the flash.

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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.

    That does look really yummy!

    • Once again all the different flavours complimented each other rather than just wishy- washy water veg. Having the potatoes gave it some bulk and I like potato salad, so there are a couple of cold ones for tomorrow’s second meal

    Mint does grow very quick and wild. I used to have mine in a pot, to contain it.
    You will never be short.

    We’ve had hot temps all ov a sudden and rain every day – the arugula has doubled in size and the kale is in a race to beat the arugula! Sparky can scarcely contain himself. Everytime he walks past, he has to sample a leaf! Soon he will be over run with greens!!
