Brisbane Local Food

Growing local

With a day off work, it was a chance to harvest and cook some of our own produce.  Lunch started with pumpkin soup, followed by sweet potato, tatsoi and spring onion frittata, served with cassava chips and salad (tomato, cucumber, capsicum, leafy greens).  Then to finish - platter of yellow dragon fruit, passionfruit, raspberries and carombola.  It was such a good feeling to be self sufficient even if only for lunch! Similar again for dinner sounds good.

That is wonderful Susan. The pure pleasure of eating healthy food from your own garden.

What a lovely lunch I hope you enjoyed your day off. Even when you spend it cooking or gardening it is something different in the week, a real treat.

Hope those you shared with enjoyed your delectable fare. Sounds like you have a wonderful garden. Would you like to consider a Garden Visit for next year?

How good is that?!

Well done Susan! Once you've had a meal from predominantly your own-grown, the meals after aren't half so delicious. It must take some fancy planning and sticking to a schedule never mind the space, to eat at least twice a day, 7 days a week from your own garden.

Yum. Lunch at your place sounds wonderful and to think that you have grown it all yourself is the dream.
