WOW AGAIN

Click on the photo to drool.....


I can't help putting these photos of our dinner, before I cook it, on the blog because everyone would surely enjoy seeing the amazing colours and textures of these vegetables. Hopefully it will taste as good as it looks. This type of existence makes us very dissatisfied when we eat out (which is rare) but very, very happy when we eat in (which is nearly always.) The little purple sprouting broccoli is meant to be Romanesco, according to the packet, but who cares. I do hope, though, that the rest are romanesco - because I have already waited forever for them to begin to mature.
In this photo all the vegies look like they are wet or have been oiled or something but they are, I promise, in their natural state and just how I picked them. Quite unbelievably gorgeous, I think.
ps I fried capsicums, eggplants, squash - all coarsely chopped/sliced -for a bit in a good glug of olive oil, then added longish pieces of spring onions and blanched broccoli, covered and reduced heat for a few more minutes, garlic thrown in at the end, with some pepper. Served with Middle Eastern spiced couscous - cumin and coriander seeds, sultanas, olive oil, salt. Delicious. You can't get fat on great food. Posted by Picasa

Looks good Kate, are those red capsicums or red chillies?.

Maggie, you know how much I love chillies!? So far in my life, the only thing I can't get to enjoy is the beautiful-looking chilli (despite a lot of effort). The photos are of Red Cornos capsicums from Cath's seeds.

I love this time of year when you are scratching your head to think of something to do with zucchini and eggplant and counting the pumpkins ... soup, pasta, quiche, lasagna, soup again!

Very delicious looking. My mouth is watering. I can't wait until we can get started here on our crops. It's snowing again here in Utah, right after the ground was beginning to dry out. Argh!

It all looks really good! It's making me look forward to 6 months from now in the garden...
