I'm so enthusiastic about food and cooking at the moment. Sometimes, over winter, cooking was mundane - a bit of a chore. But lately the activity in my garden and the recent event we held have re-inspired me!
My nettle bed (neglected patch from last year potatoes) has been wonderful. I've used the nettle in soup before but yesterday I tried something new. It requires time and patience to pick the leaves.....
The kids went to my parents yesterday to stay overnight so I cooked a grown-up meal for Hubby and me. I found a Stephanie Alexander recipe for steamed Thai fish then using what I had on hand I tweaked it.
I love my kids to bits but I do enjoy some time for us every now and then.
