discoveries of the last month

Discoveries of the last month...
  1. Flowers in salads...edible flowers...dandelions,violets,violas,chive flowers,sage,rosemary and thyme flowers are all so beautiful...I want to learn more. a wonderful nutty grain with a texture like barley ....its a wonderful replacement to rice but it does take a long time to cook.

3.Stress and colds are not good moments for blogging...I went thru a stage of making weird food...trying not to use salt,trying to make healthy food for baby and parents mixing with teething and little sleep ....not a good idea...

4.Jam making is just too easy....have made in the last jam,cherry jam,strawberry jam.Also tried tomato jam which is an usual taste sensation...but good for adding to pasta sauces for a quick sweet pick up.

5.There exists a really good soya cream for whipping.

6.Nettle soup is delicious....and dandelion flower torilla(spanish omlette).

7.That France is so near to where I live and I love the bread,pastries and cheese there.

Have,nt stopped blogging ...honest !

Too much time has passed.
Before I wrote these blogs with little anouk sleeping in my arms ....
But now she wakes up when if I type and I need to give her more attention.
Her grandparents are here from Argentina for a month.
All is full of love and first steps with are taking a back seat and photos are of smiles instead of pestos.
More blogs will be written and more delicious food will be eaten.
The garden is beautiful ....everywhere there is an explosion of growth,life and colours.
Neighbours are dropping in fresh strawberries and cherries.
Little time for writting but time will come again.
