Spring Vegetable with Bacon.

Thursday 14th April 2011

At 8:23am this morning I got a text message;

“Would you be interested in a lettuce, broad beans and maybe peas? don’t want to bring them to mmcc if not…i’m going away 2nite and can’t eat them” It read.

“Yes please. Thanks Gill.” I replied.

I wanted to add; “Have you got a bottle of wine to go with that?” but I have learnt the hard way that humor and text messaging don’t always mix very well so I decided against it.

When I arrived at work I found this.


I was chuffed. She had given me a whole bag full of goodies. Artichokes, an onion, a lettuce, beans, peas, Swiss chard, mint, sage, chives, 2 kinds of parsley and to my surprise a bottle of red wine. She must be a mind reader.

“It’s all organic…” She told me. “…from my garden, even the wine.”

Thank you Gill. 🙂

When I picked up Zeph from school I told about my present.

“What do you think we should make with it?” I asked.

I wanted him to say we could make a souffle with the artichokes and a spring salad with the chard & peas.

But he didn’t.

After an abnormally long pause she said;

“I don’t know. Daddy can we go to the park?”

Indeed, what was I thinking. Let’s get our priorities right.

    Wow, beautiful pictures! (Both the before and the after; both look amazing!) Now, we just need a picture of the park. Good man Z, for keeping simplicity top of mind. 🙂

    This was such a tasty dish. The vegetables were so fresh and cooked perfectly with a good crunch to them. Wonderful!
