What a wonderful meal! I just prepared the most tasty meal from the veggie patch, with over 85% of the food on our plate originating from it.
First I made a Zucchini slice and I tried the recipe I found on Julie’s blog “Towards Sustainability”. If you have a spare zucchini or two, give it a go because it was just so yummy and I highly recommend it. Thanks for sharing Julie.
I have not been a big fan of the zucchini, but now I am a convert! Now I know what to do with the other bizzilion zucchini’s that are growing in the patch!
I used the following home grown ingredients. Zucchini, capsicum, onions, eggs, which is about 80% of the listed ingredients.
Very nice. I served it with a freshly picked garden salad that had about 5 different lettuces and mizuna. I also added a few baby rainbow chard leaves and some baby nasturtium leaves to give it a bit of kick. I tossed through some Tommy toe cherry tomatoes from the garden, and some cheddar cheese and raw mushrooms that we bought. Everyone loved it, and there are two slices for tomorrows lunch.
I really love growing and cooking our own food. It makes all the hard, but enjoyable work worthwhile.
Couldn’t agree more! There is nothing better than walking out the back door and picking up everything one needs for a meal.
The only exception we have to make to ours is beef & pork, a little hard to farm pigs and cows on 1/4 of an acre, so we buy local paddock fed from the local butcher when we want it. The chickens we have started to use are our own, I can’t stand the killing and plucking tho, so hubby does that part for me LOL

I was just gonna say the corgette (sorry I’m european) fritter thing looks lovely. But now I’m intrigued by the 2nd comment and I don’t even know any of you – the blogosphere messes with my head a little bit I think! Like the blog though, cheerio!
arn’t you glad i taught to cook?
We use our zucchini’s up like this too (in fact that is our tea tomorrow night!) I made banana and choc chip muffins the other day and put grated zucchini in – you can’t even taste it and the kids ate them all up.
