Well it’s back to loads of rain and pretty chilly weather… good for the garden & all the seedlings that Ligia has planted over the holidays – we’ll be cooking up a storm (excuse the awful pun) in no time!
And welcome to Ligia, it’s great to have her here, stepping in just in the nick of time to get our veggies happening by springtime – please stop by and say hi: she is a goldmine of info on sustainability, horticulture and all things Brazilian too!
So we’ve got some lovely silverbeet growing that we’ll be planning a silverbeet pie-fest with; I’m besotted with the beautiful marjoram at the moment so am planning some pasta in the kitchen again next week as it was so much fun last time, thinking perhaps marjoram and fontina ravioli this time? Mmmm… Will be checking out our olives later today too so see whether they’re up for inclusion in some olive bread we’ll make to have with our ever popular soup recipe, and we’ll also be taking full advantage of the parsley invasion and get chopping with some bone-cuddling and blood-warming parsley soup. And to finish, if we get time we’ll also pop in a few of Ava’s orange Anzacs that I’ve been playing around with these school holidays!
Regarding recipes up on the bondikitchengarden.com blog: please bear with us while we get it all sorted! Hopefully l won’t be too far away… In the meantime if you need recipes for anything (silverbeet soup, upside-down orange cake etc) drop me in your email address & I’ll send them on.
VOLUNTEERS!!! We still desperately need mummies, daddies, grannies, granddads, next-door neighbours, godparents etc to help us in our kitchen and garden classes! It’s only an hour and a half of your time a week and I can promise it will be fun-filled, exhilarating and not at all stressful (!) and you get full instructions – and the best thing is that you get to sit down with your (or someone else’s charming) kid at the end and enjoy what you’ve all cooked together! Most desperate:
Wed 11am session
Thursday 9am session
Thursday 1.30pm session
But we can always do with another hand or two in the other sessions!
We’re here Tuesday to Thursday, please drop in to the cottage and let us know if you can help…
Also Ligia would LOVE a couple of hunky blokes (or chicks) to move some heavy stuff in the garden in the next few weeks.
That’s all for now folks. Keep warm! Melissa
