This is my favourite summer lunch.
A breadroll with cheese and salad, with all of the salad coming from our garden.
How cool is that?
Yesterday I harvested the first cucumber and the first tomato (a Black Russian - it's gorgeous!) and then, well, we ate them. The lettuce we've been picking since winter - but going outside each lunch and dinner to pick the lettuce for salad still isn't getting old in this family. Oh no. Definitely not. We still think it's very cool.
Last year I documented my adventures in making bread and cheese, and this year I want to definitely do more bread making. A friend has loaned me her breadmaker, so I might have to see what the fuss is about. And as luck would have it, Suzy Hausfrau has just given us her tips for breadmaking which I think I'm going to find very useful.
But maybe when the days are a little cooler. And after I've done something with the 7000 kilos (well no really, but it seems like it) of apricots I have currently sitting on top of my washing machine. After my swim yesterday we went back to Julie's house and I helped her pick the rest of her apricots. I totally scored for my efforts. Last night I made apricot icecream. Tonight will be jam. Tomorrow night might be apricot tart. Or more icecream. It's certainly delicious.
