Kitchen garden news – 11th April 2013

Nature as architect

We’ve made it to the end of term in one piece and what a finale of fabulous food we’ve had! It has been a veritable bonanza of deliciousness here in the cottage, with an extravaganza of carrots unearthed by little hands and making their way into two of our recipes this week (the carrots, not the little hands…). And we segued easily from the apricot, cranberry and cardamom hot cross buns of Easter into the return of Ava’s orange Anzacs (hooray!) – with a lot of hearty, gutsy veggies in between to balance it all out nicely, thanks very much…

It has been lovely to welcome loads of new volunteer faces to the SAKGP this term & we all hope to see you again – as you will know, our amazing and crucial program needs your ongoing assistance and the children LOVE to have you in here too!

So to the menu this week: Carrot muffins with garlic butter, Crispy rosemary flatbreads, Moroccan carrot dip (carrot-tastic, I told you!), Chickpea, leek and green veg soup, and of course Ava’s aforementioned bikkies. So yum that I’m looking forward to recreating them all at home in the holidays so that I can have a proper platesworth!

I’ll post the recipes over the next week here… also only a few places left on my school holiday program so hurry!

Happy hols to all 🙂

Cheers! Melissa

PS I’m asking your help to guard the passionfruit! Don’t let anyone take them – we need them next term! Thank you, thank you…

Save me!
