Endive casserole and update homestead

Post by: andrea     No Comments     , , ,      On  May 03, 2014

The endive is stunning in the picking garden. And there’s still more than enough. We often eat it as a raw endive hotchpot. Nice of course, but when I was surfing across the internet I was inspired to make a casserole. Of course I had to try it out (and adapt it to my own taste). The casserole was delicious. A nice layer of creamy andive with cheese flavor, the second layer sweet minced meat topped with sliced ​​potatoes. On top bacon and more cheese were sprinkled. A delicious combination that we will definitely eat more often!

Update life on the homestead

4Pure: Update homestead

As you can see, everything is growing and blooming in the picking garden. Even the weeds, so I took them out last week . In terms of yield , it is still mainly leafy vegetables: lettuce, chard, arugula , endive and celery. The first strawberries are coming. And see how nice the gooseberries grow, but they really take quite a bit longer to ripen. And every day fresh eggs. Provided, of course, if I can take them underneath my broody hen. Last week I sowed peas and snow peas. They stabbing their heads all nicely above the ground. And it seems that the broad bean blossom is slowly getting there. The fruit trees are almost finished blooming and small fruits are visible. It promises to be a good harvest so far.
