Prawns marinated in cajun spices and cooked on the barbie with salad from the garden.

It’s my husband’s turn to cook one of his 3 specialities this evening - pasta with spicy peas. I’ll be sorting out the wine.

😁

Actually, it’s very tasty and colourful. Not very spicy though.

I forgot, as well as sorting out a bottle of wine I have the very important job of picking the parsley!

Started with fresh goats cheese pitted with cherry tomatoes and basil, topped with homemade tomato jelly, followed by pork and veal burgers served with various salads. Fruit and ice cream to follow at some point........

For those who have a glut of courgettes, try Hugh Fernley Whittingstall's Polpette recipe. Basically little balls of courgette, breadcrumbs and cheese (lots of other ingredients) baked in oven. Makes lovely nibbles with apero or bigger versions can be eaten with salad for main course.

You can't just waltz in here with a solution to the courgette invasion without giving precise details! So what are these 'other ingredients'? Does it beat the 'marinade them in salt then pickle them' recipe? C'mon.....

Fry onions and garlic mix in fresh chopped parsley, grated courgette, breadcrumbs, grated gruyere, salt/pepper and eggs to bind. Roll into little balls and cook in oven. Look up the recipe on the internet to get precise weights.
