Oh yes, more than one actually. This large courgette was destined to be another courgette surprise. First I cut it in half and scooped out the seeds then drizzled it in olive oil and popped it in the oven until it softened.
For the filling I used some Feta and Mature Cheddar cheese and some of the tomatoes from the greenhouse.
Back into the oven it went until all was cooked and starting to brown. We did not eat straight away but come suppertime I put one section under the grill until heated through. Delicious. The other half was whizzed up the next day with some stock and made into soup.
Our edible back garden feeds us well.
I'm up to the 39th bunch of grapes and there must still be the same number still left on the vine. I eat the grapes for my 'afters' and also another bunch at suppertime.
Today I roasted the flesh of another giant courgette, along with some garlic, onion and tomatoes. Whizzed again and there's enough soup for 2 more days. For tea today I'm making a warm Asian salad and a smaller courgette will find its way into that with runner beans, carrots and spring onion. I'm certainly getting my 5 a day at the moment as our apples and plums are now ready to be munched through.
PS re the coach - I'm one of those 'travel sick' people but the coach we travelled in was nothing like the coaches of my youth. There were foot rests, air-conditioning and very comfortable seats. We also had a coffee/toilet stop on the way.
