Back from holiday.

Well I didn't actually get around to letting you all know that I was going away but that has been the reason for my silence of late and why I need to do a lot of catching up with all my favourite blogs.

We had some wonderful weather and spent lots of time on the beach and even went in the sea which was pretty darn cold. We spent our holiday in the east coast in Norfolk and at times the waves were pretty immense.

The breakers hit the beach hard spraying 6' into the air!!
It was a lovely relaxing week but unfortunately I cam home to receive bad news so although I have quickly popped down the allotment I haven't managed to find the time to do much.

I do know that finally I have few red tomatoes and some of my courgettes are even too big to be classed as marrows.

Anyway I am hoping to get down and get tidied up a little this afternoon...to be honest the time out up there will be nice....and plus I will have time to remember memories and reflect on things.

I will take some pics whilst I'm their and do a generalised picture post for you.

I guess looking for hundreds of different courgette recipes will keep my mind off things for a while too so if you know any please post them in the comments for me.

Things may be a bit scatty in my posts for a while so please bear with me until nature has played it's course.

Thanks. Hope all my readers are well. x

  1. Sorry you have had bad news Tanya - hope the gardening helps a little. I have popped a link to courgette recipes back on the sidebar of my blog and am adding to those I posted last year.

  2. Excess courgettes (and marrows): peel then grate the fleshy part. This can be dehydrated and stored in jars or bagged into the freezer so you can make your favorite recipes in the dead of winter.

    Glad you enjoyed your holiday. :)

    1. I don't tend to dehydrate my food...I don't have a dehydrator at all and wouldn't know how to go about it without one. Thanks for the idea though but I think trying to use my stove to dehydrate would not be very cost effective.

  4. I had planned on starting my vegetable garden this year, but I'm glad it didn't happen. We've suffered one of the worst droughts in years around here, and most crops haven't fared well. I'm glad the weather here has gotten better in recent days.
