Today I have had a good feed from the garden, strawberries for breakfast, and then other than the cream and peas (ours aren't quite ready yet!) tea was all from the veggie patch too. I made myself a courgette & mint frittata, very yummy indeed, even though I am not a big egg eater.
Here's the recipe, you'll need:
a couple of potatoes sliced thinly (ours were freshly dug up from the garden tonight)
1 small courgette thinly sliced with a veggie peeler
a handful of fresh or frozen peas
some mint leaves chopped up (I used basil mint, very yummy)
4 free range eggs (or a goose egg and a hen egg is a good combo)
a dollop of cream (or milk if you want to be healthier)
salt and pepper
Pop the potatoes into pan of boiling water and cook, add the peas after about 5 minutes. Place a sieve on top of the pan and steam the courgette strips. Meanwhile, beat your eggs and add the cream, mint leaves and some seasoning. Once the potatoes and peas are cooked, drain them through the sieve with the courgettes.
Heat a large frying or omelette pan with a little olive oil in it. Add the egg mixture and then the veggies and evenly distribute them around the pan with a fork.
Cook this over a medium heat for a bout 10 minutes or until the bottom is golden. You should be able to shuggle it about in the pan.
Grate some parmesan over the top and then place under a hot grill to cook the top and brown it off.
I made a little pesto and creme fraiche dip to have with mine tonight, it was really tasty.
On Monday night, we had to do one of the hardest things ever, we had to chose our puppy from a litter of 6. Sorry, did I forget to mention we were getting a black lab pup.......?!!! Oh well, we must be mad but hey ho! So, we halved the problem as we decided to have a girl, the litter was 3 girls and 3 boys.
We went from 3........
The lovely little lady above is coming home with us on 3rd August, we can't wait.
