Walking along the edge of our side of the woods this week trying to dodge the worst of the rain with the dogs, these beauties caught my eye. I have no idea whether they are edible or deadly poisonous, but I simply had to pick them to show to Lovely Hubby before the torrential rain rotted them away. I also wanted to look in our mushroom handbook to see what sort they were, but the book's at the other house ..... as are most things we need and when we're there it's the same story, we go in a drawer or cupboard to get something out and realise that, yes ... it's at the other house!!
As it happened within an hour the rain stopped and we had a wonderfully sunny day, so I thought I'd photograph them for posterity and so I can check them out when I am reunited with my handbook later.
This week it's been all about the veggies, bringing in the last of this and the last of that. The weird and wonderful carrots were all blanched and then open frozen, the yellow courgette and beans were roasted with other veggies from the fridge for tea that night. The lettuce, the wonderful surprise lettuce, was my lunch today on a sandwich with a slice or two of cheese and there are a few more lettuces to bring in next week.
Yesterday saw me pulling up what was left of the Beetroot, Lovely Hubby had some with his tea last night and the rest was bottled up with some vinegar to eat once we have eaten the Pickled Beetroot from 2010 that we are manfully ploughing our way through at the moment. Why didn't I have any with my tea, well the smell of beetroot cooking really puts me off it for a while, I think it smells dreadfully 'hot earthy' and just not nice. But I love the taste of it, so in a couple of days I will be able to eat some from the jar in the fridge with no ill effects but in the meantime ..... YUK no way!!
I have lots of funny little foibles ..... do you?
