An Ode to Vegetables

At work today I had the most amazing flash-cooked yellow & green courgettes. Absolutely delicious! I also got quite excited about seeing a Borlotti bean pod for the first time! They are actually quite pretty… & the beans themselves are all shiny & smooth. I’ll try & take some photographs & share them with you.
I love these food-related illustrations by Claudia Pearson. If I owned my own house I think they’d look great framed & hanging up in the kitchen.


This picture on the Howies website made me giggle.. the carrot is huge!

Flash Courgettes:

You will need…
*courgettes (green & yellow preferably!)
*a fresh chilli
*garlic
*olive oil

1. Thinly slice the chilli pepper, removing any seeds. Thinly slice the garlic (use as much or as little as you like with both) & slice the courgettes.
2. Heat a glug or two of olive up in the pan, get it nice & hot & then drop in all of your ingredients. Be careful not to burn yourself!
3. Cook for approximately two-three minutes & then remove from the heat & serve.

So simple & so yummy!

Happy Saturday 🙂

Foodie Friday

I work in an Italian restaurant. It’s a pretty good place to practise taking food photographs!

It’s also the place that is going to be holding me hostage until Monday morning… working tonight & then two doubles over the weekend. Looooooooooooooooooooong!

Anyhow, whilst on the boat we did not have scrummy Italian to sustain us, so we had dinner out Wednesday night & last night. 

Wednesday evenings meals at the George & Dragon in Sutton Courtenay. DB had the burger & I had pork belly with black pudding. Homemade, both less than a tenner & delicious! If you’re ever in the area this pub is definitely worth a stop!

Yesterday’s standard pub fare at The King’s Arms at the Sandford Lock.

Pictures of our boating adventure will be posted up at some point over the weekend… keep your eyes peeled!
