I'm loving this time of year. I'm trying to fly through my household chores early, leaving the day free to teach the kids and then spend some time in the garden. I'm trying to get out into it at least once a day. That way, I can identify any problems early and I'm also aware of the food available for eating.
I have been loving looking around the garden and planning our meals around our produce. Yesterday I had eggs from the chook shed, goat's cheese in the fridge (thanks girls) and spinach in the garden. Well the obvious choice was a spinach and goat's cheese quiche with a garden salad of lettuce, peas and edible flowers. Yu-uum!!
Of course, there were other ingredients, such as salt and pepper, that were bought in, but all in all, a much better way to provide food. I would be happy if I produced a meal this sustainable once a week, ecstatic if I managed it two or three times a week, and completely, absolutely
smug beside myself with happiness if I could do it all the time!
Is this your aspiration too?
