|COOK|meal planning Monday/home grown 8 September

~ Harvest/forage/store ~
12 eggs
1 cucumber
1 bag nettles
Fallen apples for the chickens

 ~ Meals made from the garden/forage ~
Poached eggs
Fried egg sandwich
Nettle soup - recipe on blog tomorrow 

~ Progress ~
Salads are growing well now, we'll certainly be harvesting a few this coming week.

Lots of eggs this week so we've had a few basic egg meals!  

I finally foraged the nettles for my version of nettle soup and it's absolutely amazing so I'm sure that will be a regular lunch for me, apparently nettles are no good after autumn so I'm hoping to make some more and pop it on the freezer.

The beetroot have shot up this week, I don't think they'll make it beyond the size of a golf ball, but that's just how the hubs and I enjoy them.

We also went mushroom foraging, unfortunately no ceps or chanterelles but I have found a little gem called an amythest deceiver (Laccaria amethystea)  I'm hoping to get to the woods on Friday to collect some to make a nice pasta dish, it a real shame they don't retain their gorgeous colour when cooked but are lovely little mushrooms.  Had a lovely time though and came across many different species of mushrooms.
