Waking up this morning, was a welcome sound of persistent rain. Yesterday I was working in the allotment and the need for watering was apparent. Luckily the heavens opened and for the last 12 hours it has rained and still is.
As the asparagus and artichokes needed harvesting, I decided to pick these before the group arrived.
On the menu: Artichoke in a vinegrette sauce.
Followed by a lentil and tomato soup, topped with basil.
As a main meal we had asparagus, with boiled potatoes and a poached egg.
Although the group today was small we had fun experimenting.
