Last week I went vegetable picking at the pick your own again. In summer when I used to go it was full of people, most of them picking strawberries and other berries. This time it was deserted. Little Miss Spice, Master Spice and I were the only ones there gathering squash and brassicas. It was strange, but in a good way. We came away with cauliflower, cabbage, butternut squash, a pumpkin, a marrow and a kohlrabi – enough to last a couple of weeks.
The only decisions now are how to cook and eat all these lovely local vegetables. At the time I was also searching through my assigned Secret Recipe Club blog, Flavours by Four. I was torn between sweet and savoury – red velvet chocolate chip cookies or Greek pizza. Just to make the decision more difficult for myself, I decided to search my assigned blog for recipes using the vegetables we’d picked. I came across these yummy looking stuffed pasta shells and my decision was made, well after considering the sausage and butternut pasta bake too!
