    Finished picking the last of the bok choy so we'll have that (sauteed with garlic) to accompany shrimp and pasta with bell pepper. Should be quick and easy!

    Lamb chops, spanakopita, rice, potatos and a salad. We ate out a Greek-Ned restaurant.
    BTW Gail--what sort of sarnies were those?

    I keep a Rosemary plant upstairs on the balcony for kitchen use. Oh my goodness--what a "sprig'r two" of this does for spuds (these spuds are roseval). You first par boil the chipped spuds, then fry them in olive oil and the rosemary. Holy mackerel !....no, I mean salmon. We eat fish a lot here.

    The past couple of days we have harvested new spuds and have eaten them for supper.
    This new spud (for us) was a trial. It is called, Maris Peer.

    They look a bit yellowish from the overhead lighting, but in fact they were as white as driven snow. The flavour of these was quite special...difficult to describe. They were a bit sweetish I guess you could say. Not sweet in the sense of sugar, but sort of creamy. It was a super flavour and they remained stiff-ish after boiling, the Bride says that if one would boil them too long that they could become crumbly.

    We also had the first broad beans for this meal.

    The plate looked like this:

    For meat we had nieuwe harring. The new herring are something that we all look forward to each year, and for a few weeks folks will be getting them almost every day...as time goes by they change in flavour a bit, so now is the ideal time to gorge.

    The following day we dug under a different spud plant, the Hanza--also new for us. The flavour for this one was even better than the Maris Peer and it had a rich, real potato flavour. Good grief that was good.

    The following morning we had the leftover spuds for brekkie We fried the boiled spuds with Rosemary and had them with eggs and real OJ.

    First off we cut 12kg of tomatoes and 12kg of courgette and 8,5kg onions and 6,8kg aubergines and 2kg of peppers. 3 hrs later and we started cooking. Too much for the pot.

    Still a few hours until it is ready. Herbs added are garlic and thyme and parsley and basil. This recipe is called ratatouille.
