Courgettes…

I would have liked to keep them in the greenhouse a bit longer but as you can see they’ve started to flower and they simply need more room to grow……so we had to reach a compromise…plant them outside but cover them temporarily cause the weather is just so crazy……

And the last pic, those small seedlings are globe artichokes……pretty pleased…Alhamdulilah

of course you make dolmas….even if you haven’t got a clue how to…

dd17 suggested we make dolmas like grandma used to…but we don’t have a recipe?…who cares…let’s play it by ear…just for once let’s do it our way…a bit of cinnamon…cinnamon? are you sure?!!!…yeah go on trust me…shall we check on line? ….nah, no need…carry on…a bit of cumin, plenty of paprika, coriander …any other spices you can think of? no, that should be enough….mix it all together with some salt and pepper…what about the sauce?…well , sort of a red sauce I guess…plenty of garlic and onions and you know…whatever else takes your fancy….and just like that, my dolmas are ready for tonight’s iftar…should I add some chick peas to the sauce?…..

Salaams y hasta la vista,
