With so many lovely sweet cherry tomatoes ready, having 10 people for lunch is a great opportunity to use them as a snack. We made some mini tomato, basil, mozzarella kebabs
With the apples being ready nearly 14 days earlier than last year, it threw me a little as this is normally a task AFTER holiday, so now thanks to some lovely helpers I will turn this batch of eaters and cookers into some tasty apple juice and can take some time off in the knowledge that when I come back some lovely juice is awaiting us.
As it is such a busy morning, we had a easy lunch. Courgette soup with feta and mint with quick bread. For the bread we used 220gr self raising flour, with a pinch of salt, 1/2 cup of natural yoghurt, and some water to make a good dough. In this case we also added some pressed garlic, but we could have used sundried tomatoes, olives too.
As a surprise the children brought a cake for us all to enjoy, it was so tasty that we asked Ruth for the recipe
