A return to compost meals.



I love this time of year. 

For supper I just pop down to Haddock's, see what's growing, select a few bits and pieces, and combine them with whatever is hanging around in the kitchen (a Tomato and some Girolles).

Then comes the magic. I fry them all together (some having been previously cooked), then sprinkle with ground Cumin, and some salt to taste.


We've been eating these 'Compost fry-ups' since our children were small, and it's become a firm family favourite.

It costs nothing, it tastes delicious, and it reinforces my aim to become more veggie.

  2. That first picture shows just why we should grow our own veg.... look at the freshness! And, looking at those girolles.... learn to forage too!

    1. They certainly are the best. We've been living on bottled or frozen vegs for the past few months, so we're very pleased that our supply of 'fresh' has started again.

    1. I always have 3 types of rice in the house; Basmati, Arborio, and American style quick cook rice. NEVER brown rice, I can't stand it.

  5. A few simple, homegrown ingredients and, ' voila ', a feast fit for a King...... my only criticism is it's name ... Compost Fry-up doesn't do it justice somehow !!!!! XXXX
