Today's object has been a featured recently. I re-discovered it when I went through one of the many boxes in The Garage. One of the many boxes that will have to be tackled when I get to Phase 2 of decluttering. Which may be some time away, as I am still in Phase 1 of the house.
However, this plate is lovely, and I remember it well from my childhood. For some reason I remember jam tarts being served on it, but I'm wondering if that is just a visual memory on account of the pattern.
It was one of my Mum's favourite plates. purely because of the colour I think. I can remember it occasionally sitting as a centrepiece on the kitchen table with fruit or maybe flowers on it.
Thought I might show you my favourite summer drink as well. Favourite cool drink on a hot day. This is ginger cordial, lots of ice, soda water and a big slug of lemon or lime. Very nice. We don't grow enough grapes for my other favourite tipple.
A couple of bad photos of our first Tamarillo. Another easy to grow plant, not sure why we haven't tried it before. Very nice, unusual taste. A little bit tart, but nice in with other fruit, or just scooped straight out.
Now I have a question for the keen cooks/gardeners out there. This is a Taro I bought recently. Having been informed by my gardener husband that he has planted some, I thought I had better investigate what to do with them when a bucket of them is
tossed handed to me.
Sure I have googled it, and have looked at recipes, and it all seems a bit of a bother to prepare. Has anyone actually cooked them and/or enjoyed them in a meal? Pretty ugly brute (was my first thought) maybe I can be proven wrong ... and this was only a small one!
Will be back later in the week with more decluttering - because according to my survey, that is what you'd like to see the most of - with a smattering of what we produce around our yard.
So pretty much more of the same, just more decluttering. Which is really what I should be doing anyway, so thanks for pointing me in that direction. Thanks for participating in the survey - in fact, just thank you for reading any of this!
