All Pitching In
It was a lovely but busy week end with family
Our youngest family member is not old enough yet to get involved, but was happy to watch
little fella got stuck in helping to pick beans,
we did have a large harvest of 42 cucumbers, 3lb of chilies and 7lb of beans along with courgettes, beetroot and some peppers
filling the log store was a main priority with everyone helping
and learning how to split the logs
the little one even chipped in to help get the logs into the store
In the afternoon while the visitors headed to the beach, I did get some beans canned.
I then got started on dinner, deciding to go with a Spanish themed meal, I had several dishes of Tapas planned and the weather played fair so we could eat outside.
Tomatoes in olive oil and basil
Salt and pepper squid
baked chirozo, our own is now ready for eating
Courgettes in garlic butter
deep fried whitebait
chicken in honey and mustard sauce
Tortilla (Spanish omelet)
Flat breads, Olives, pickles and a mint and cucumber riata
I then made up a big pan of paella, that I cooked at the table all washed down with Sangria.
Unfortunately I forgot to take photo's, we even had some Spanish music in the background.
Visitors left yesterday today we are back to normal and tomorrow I have my friend coming for a few days.
