the one about the veg
The summer isn't whoosing by as quickly as I thought it would, which is good because I don't have that fall, back-to-school feeling yet.
I want more summer sun.
That said, it is the first day of August. So, I should get myself prepared, as this is the month that is going to fly by.
I blame the vegetable patch. Toby's parents have a vegetable patch that I've been "shopping" at every weekend.
The courgettes (zucchini - I think Toby likes the American word better. How could you not? It starts with a "Z" afterall!) are monster-like.
Almost every dinner we've been eating involves a courgette.
I've had lots of firsts with the gooseberry. First time picking them...first time cooking with them (elderflower cordial and a bunch of unrefined caster sugar)...
...first time eating them!
We see garden veg wherever we go.
Okay, okay...we haven't gone that crazy.
I'm just saying, I'm enjoying our Summer of Veg. Got to get to the kitchen now. I've got a rhubarb crumble in the oven and I can't be having it burn.
