Harvesting…

alhamdulilah all the work earlier in the season has paid off…subhan’Allah how blessed we feel every time we eat something which has come straight from our plot…..

But the one we are in awe of is the PUMPKINS…….they grow and grow and grow and we don’t even know when harvest time will be insh’Allah…….. a while I guess….cause all green still and pumpkins are orange right?

oh and the leeks…..some will be picked soon for stir frying and the others will wait till they are bigger and fatter for pies and soups insh’Allah….

Blessed indeed…..and the sun is shinning once again….we need all the sun we can get to redden the tomatoes……

British Bake off inspired…

We all watch the program at home ….best T.V ever …….as soon as the episode is over I turn to  dd14 with pleading eyes and beg her to bake something that has made me drool while watching…..this week it was the biscottis…..had to have some and at long last I got to eat one today…..yes , just one cause tomorrow is weighing day….just a little treat….I’ve been very good today…..all week actually….two swimming sessions and 3 kettle bell workouts…..no junk, no processed foods…….. fingers crossed results will show tomorrow insh’Allah…..so yeah here they are….your turn to salivate ……alternatively you could make your own and treat yourself to a really nice biscotti….
