Busy Days

Busy days with a new job have meant that my blogging has sadly fallen behind.  I had to give up on the end of the cookbook challenge though I'm still happy that I did every week right up until the last couple when I was running around like a mad woman & had to say no for my kids & my sanity!

While I try and get myself back into a groove, here are some pictures of dishes made with the broad bean crop which is now all over ( I do have several bags in the freezer for later use though)!

Broad Bean, pea & pancetta salad with blanched almonds

Beetroot, broad bean & chard salad (all from the garden!!)

For now I am busy keeping up the new summer garden which will hopefully be producing soon, planning meals that I can make ahead, spending lazy summer days with the kids on my days off & the Christmas onslaught has begun too, so its dinners, parties, kids concerts, end of year break ups etc.  Love this time of year, enjoy XXX

Your garden has been so successful, well done, the meals that you have made out of it are divine. We eat salad every night out of our garden but I didn't really plant alot of veges.

What have you planted in the summer garden??
