FREE chapter of Canal House Cooking, Vol. 4 below!
The bursting flavors of summer fruits and vegetables can be made to last all year by canning and preserving them. Canning can brighten your pantry throughout the year, extending the life of perishable produce and utilizing those fruit and vege ‘gluts’ that can sometimes occur when growing food at home.
This afternoon we made a Thai chicken curry for dinner, with potato, zucchini, diced fresh tomatoes, freshly picked silverbeet and spring onions, some homegrown kaffir lime leaves, and homegrown loquats!
Hopefully little hen will be reincarnated as a pumpkin.
the clock has ticked by
changes become permanent
the bus moves us on
lights noise city fun
hot woks fry tasty noodles
the starless highway
we meander homeward bound
happily in love
my silent stomach
the clock ticks out the wrong time
discomfort moves me
belly full of food
mind at ease – body at rest
time for spring sunshine
sleepy river flat and calm
work waits till tuesday
For my 2nd attempt at knitting, this worked out really well! I finally got some knitting needles from the op shop the other day, and some yarn. I googled ‘how to knit’, and used some simple instructions to learn the basic technique (i.e. my 1st serious attempt at knitting). Something I’d been wanting for a while was a thick headband to slip over my head and keep my hair out of my face. This does an awesome job.
This weekend was the last weekend of October, and as such we thought we should fit in a late Oktoberfest-style feast over the weekend. We must have been busy mid September, because we completely forgot about it!
Our local op shop rocks – amazing what you can get for practically nothing. They probably don’t even know how valuable EG magazines are, information wise. When the lady went to add everything up, she counted the magazines as 30c each!!
We made this scrumptious omlette today for a late lunch / early dinner. We used 4-5 medium to large luscious homegrown portabello mushrooms, and the flavour that these emparted into the eggs was amazing.
