I have been a bit lax at updating this blog - I've had so much to contend with - apart from torrential rain, flooding, roof leaks and appointments.
I have been up the allotment inbetween all the above but had either not the time nor the energy to blog - so will be doing some catch up posts this week hopefully now things are calming down.
Yesterday I harvested the first batch of courgettes and squash and onions so did a big batch cook.
My absolute favourite way of eating veggies - roasted into a ratatouille.
I make pounds and pounds and pounds of it over the summer - enough to last all winter until the new season's crops are ready to harvest again. I just have one bag of last year's left!
So in the mix goes diced onions, courgettes, marrows, squash, pumpkins when they are ready, tomatoes when I have a surplus, if not then tins of chopped tomatoes, roasted big red peppers - these I buy in jar as they are so delicious and you get loads. In this mix I have new potatoes as well and some sliced carrots too.
We had a pound of it with our lunch yesterday and here is 5lb which I packed and popping in the freezer this morning.
