I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things over here, after my internet hiatus of late. The last couple weeks have been full to bursting with work, soul-searching and even a little visit from family. I did manage to get to the farmer’s market on Sunday though, and bought some sustenance for the week ahead. Yes, that makes this post three days late, but to be honest, with everything that’s been going on here lately, I’m impressed I’ve even managed that.
Spring is well and truly here in London, bringing with it sun-filled skies, open windows and new food to enjoy. No asparagus at the market just yet, but I did nab some wild garlic this week. I’ll likely put it into a frittata of sorts, maybe with some new potatoes. I like the look of this recipe, which uses muffin tins to make mini-frittatas. Awesome idea, no?
Speaking of mini, those little tarts made for a delicious lunch on Sunday afternoon, feeding my Mum, Grandma, Andrew and myself alongside some homemade soup. I can’t find a link for the company that sells them, but the flavours were delicious (particularly the Broccoli and Stilton).
I like to have fresh herbs about in the warmer months, and those chives are looking lovely on my countertop right now. Of course, with all the pastas and egg dishes that I could use them in, who knows how long they’ll last. If I can find the time (and energy) I might just tackle this Goat’s Cheese and Chive Gnocchi recipe.
I’m about to make that Savoy cabbage into my lunch, and if successful, I’ll be posting the recipe, a peanut-y Asian slaw, later today.
But enough about me- how have you been?
