More courgette musings

Had a very busy day today out and about. Took a Broccoli Pesto sandwich with me, and it was just as yummy as I thought it would be. Very easy to make.. get two slices of bread out of the packet, splodge some pesto on, cover, cut and wrap. So that’s a keeper, I’ll definitely be having that for lunch again. Actually, you could probably freeze the sandwiches already made, that would be even easier in the morning!

Was musing on courgettes as my body was busy but my brain was not, at various points during the day. One of the thoughts was to check the Abel & Cole website as they have some lovely veg based dishes that can easily be frugalised. When I got home I did and found this one for Curried Coconut Courgette Couscous. It looks different and delicious, I would try it with curry powder rather than curry paste, partly because the paste I have can’t be eaten raw, and partly because I want to be able to post it here as a cheap enough meal. They suggest it as a side dish, but I think it would stand up on its own as a main, we shall see.

So many recipes – so little time!

Put some more musings in the Hints and Tips page. Think I may have to break it up into sub-pages as it looks like it is going to turn into a mega-page

All for today, my body is demanding sleep very soon and I still have to shower

Oh, forgot to say. For breakfast this morning, I had the plum compote I made with the plum drops yesterday, with some thick Greek yogort and quite a bit of sugar as the compote was very bitter. The combination was extremely nice. I still have about two thirds of it left, so that will make another 2 breakfasts for me. Hmmm, thinks… wonder if the compote would work on toast? It’s thick enough, I shall try it and see
