very lucky where we live really.. It’s surrounded by historics.. A great Manor House.. Alms houses, an arts centre and a beautiful 12th century church.. All pretty much on the doorstep! Ok so the sound of the bells can get a little annoying.. It’s not that bad though! Better than hearing sirens!
Ok.. So no picture of the church.. Forgot. Yet my Sicilian pal Vince takes along stuff from his allotment and for a donation you can get bags of stuff. Whatever is ready really.. I really must go more often..
This is what I went and fetched ..
Good looking stuff huh?
Well Vince gave me some of this Sicilian plant that he said makes great soup.. I decided to go the whole hog.. Hog? Yup..
Another pal has this great ham hanging ..
And I just went all Edward scissor hands on the veggies..
Starting with the potatoes, carrots and ham.. Then adding the rest..
Then adding a drained can of black eyed beans.. No stock as an anticipating mucho gusto flavours here..
And how was it?
Still that’s cool.. Wonder if it freezes..? Nah won’t bother.. It will do a few lunches and a couple of give-always..
