I'm still harvesting things from the Veggie Patch, although it has now turned into a place of damp devastation. The weeds are running rampant and the days are just too cold and damp to do much out there. A weeding session is on the cards for tomorrow if the forecast is as the TV weatherman said dry, sunny and cold.
Yesterday I snipped a whole bed of Spinach and processed the leaves for freezing.
Very simply just washed twice and then steamed until wilted, then the excess juices pushed out and squeezed into handful shaped blobs and open frozen. This morning all the 'blobs' were put into a freezer box and now we have 12 portions of Spinach to add to meals.
Amazing how little it all looks once processed, but well worth it for the the goodness and nutrients it supples. Popeye would be proud.
We are steadily working our way through the contents of the freezer, and, up to now, remembering to cross off the used foods!! Now I will have to remember to add to the list 12 portions of spinach.
With the pack of Filo Pastry I made some quick little turnovers containing the leftover Mediteranean Veggies from the other nights meal. A meal made from vitually nothing. The coleslaw was made with simply carrot, onion and homegrown Kohl Rabi straight from the Veggie Patch, even a place of damp devastation can provide a good healthy and nutricious meal if you look hard enough.
We are having a nice relaxing weekend with Lovely Hubbys younger sister staying with us for the four days, I see lots of lovely family time and possibly a bit of weeding and painting ahead.
Whatever you're doing this weekend have fun and lets hope that as they said the sun does shine however briefly on us all.
