Today marks the end of an era, it is a sad day in the Mr and Mrs Allotment10and10a house.
I went to the freezer, and found that we only had one bag of broad beans from last year’s harvest but we must remember to look on the bright side… broad beans will be fresh soon and the freezer will fill again.
I think broad beans are possibly my favourite vegetable, after asparagus, of course.
Any way we boiled up the last of the broad beans with pasta, chucked in some tomatoes and feta and coated in pesto.
The chicken was pan fried and basted with garlic and herb butter. More on the herbs another time but we have made a herb hanging basket and they are loving it.
This meal was really tasty, easy and fairly quick but what got me most excited was, in a couple of months we will, hopefully, have most of the ingredients on our plot and make this fresh.
