Lunch, Cake and Bulbs

26 Sep

On my own for lunch today I decided to have Eggs Florentine using spinach from Sue next-door’s allotment and a fresh egg laid by chickens belonging to friends and it was delicious! The lovely Mr S is not a fan of spinach.

Sue also gave us some courgettes so this afternoon I made Courgette and Lemon Drizzle Cake, a recipe I’ve been meaning to try for some time. It tastes delicious though the texture is a little odd –  best served as a dessert with some cream, I think.

In today’s beautiful sunshine, I planted up two containers with layers of bulbs for the Spring.

    My taste buds are so tickled, I’m about to pick some spinach, and crack open an egg to poach !!!!

    Most men don’t like spinach, I do love it though too. Those bulbs are brilliant, good buy! Enjoy your drizzle cake, looks yummy!

      The cake tastes lovely but has a very strange texture and Mr S, who never turns down a cake, doesn’t want another slice!I think it may go out to the birds! 🙂
