Let's go out in the garden and have a look.
The mangies tootsies are still prolific and need to be picked every day.
The lettuce is sitting there by the thousand (slight exageration)! Aha! Lettuce and pea soup. I gently fried an onion and a potato cut it into very small pieces, fried it in a little butter then added in stock made from a stock cube. I simmered for about 5 minutes and then added the mangies for another 5 minutes and then the rescued lettuce (well washed) for another 3 minutes until it had wilted.
A quick whizz with the whizzer and voila - soup from the garden. Food miles - 30 steps. I added a little milk to make it cream of mangie and lettuce soup. When I serve it I shall sprinkle some chopped chives on the top.
We'll follow our meal with some fresh fruit salad - just fruit cut up and nothing else.
I have some homemade bread from yesterday to go with the soup and ...
quite a lot of the outer leaves ended up in the compost.
Diet - win (apart from the butter and stock cube)
Environment - win
Satisfaction - win
I'm a winner today!
