Broccoli and stilton soup is good for using up a fair quantity - bung it in the freezer until the weather is colder.

That would be instant divorce in this house if I filled the freezer with broccoli & stilton soup!  They're probably 1 & 2 on Mr P's list of most hated foods.

I'll definitely give the veggie curry a go when I have a bit more to cope with.

I made gooseberry ketchup yesterday, I've never made any form of ketchup before, it took rather a long time to evaporate off the water (probably should have used less) & I only ended up with 2 small bottles but it's always nice to try something different & I have gooseberries in the freezer from a previous crop anyway.

I'm getting a good 2nd flush of strawberries in the gh, really big ones, so I'm making strawberry tarts today.  They're one of Mr P's childhood favourites coming as he does from the soft fruit growing area of Perthshire.  (His grandfather was a raspberry grower)

What are you harvesting today, and what's on the menu can be summed up in one word - courgettes! I can't quite believe that we had visitors this morning, and forgot to give them any courgettes to take home!!

The richer we have become materially, the poorer we have become morally and spiritually. We have learned to fly in the air like birds and swim in the sea like fish, but we have not learned the simple art of living together as brothers and sisters.
