Need motivation!

So, my last proper post if from 2009... that is shameful. Time goes by so fast. I would really like to run this blog more regularly again, maybe a New Year's resolution? I now have a beautiful kitchen, I have decided to start receiving organic vegetable boxes again (after a 4 year pause!), so I just need to DO IT!

I will probably add my runner's diary to this, as I started running last year, and I think that posting about it would just motivate me to run more regularly, and better. Once you've told the world you're doing something, there's no going back, is there?

Oh, and finally, have a look at the following page. This lady makes baking so easy :)

Until next time I hope!

Still alive

I'm still here but have been very busy in the last year. We have a beautiful baby girl who is now 13 months old. I love preparing many delicious meals for the three of us and she loves her food :-)

I have also recently started a new job which is extremely demanding, so writing recipes is not top of my agenda right now.

I haven't found (taken) time to write all the new recipes we have tried... shame on me. But I regularly consult this blog for inspiration. I hope others do too!

I hope to return to recipe writing soon.

Purple sprouting broccoli

Finally, our purple sprouting broccoli is ready to be consumed! We sowed it in March last year and were getting pretty desperate to:

1) eat it
2) get the space ready to prepare the vegetable patch for this year's crop

One thing is sure is that the taste is DIVINE. It is unbelievable how tasty and good it is. For a start, I ecould smell the broccoli whilst picking and cooking it. Then the cooking water was bright green, as if grass juice, which probably means that there are millions more nutrients and goodness in these than the ones we buy from the greengrocer.

I really recommend growing purple sprouting broccoli. It sure takes a lot of space (over 1 m2 per plant) and it does take up your space for at least a year, but it is well worth it if you have the space. We will be growing them again this year for sure!
