HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all. Only 7° at 9am.

Committee meeting this morning then seeing a friend this afternoon, may help stack his logs.

Glad that's not my hedge. Don't fancy the hedge cutting.

I will/I won't grow that again

Love fennel, so I thought I'd give it another try, always bolts - it's bolted. They have such lovely fat ones in the supermarket.

Carrots and runner beans are great this year.

A Senior Moment.

Yes, that's familiar. Sounds like every dog I've had when they get old.

We loved Trebah too, went in 2011. It rained, but it didn't matter. Sheltered under the huge gunneras!

Mine was a convent, but the teaching was pretty awful, apart from a couple of lay teachers. Didn't really know what good teaching was like until I went to nursing school in London.

We made rock cakes, but I think we made pineapple upside down cake too, and scones and shortbread. Can't remember making savoury stuff.

Chicky, here taboulé (French spelling) is made from cous cous which is made from cooked wheat, like little grains of pasta. I pour boiling water on it and let it cool, stirring with a fork from time to time. Chop juicy tomatoes, cucumber, salad onion and sprinkle with salt and some vinaigrette. The juices will ooze out which then soak into the cous cous when you mix them together. You can add any veg, such as chopped French beans cooked al dente, that you like and herbs. Mint is traditional, I like basil and chives or parsley. You can add dried fruit if you like, sultanas, chopped apricot.
