The tomato bushes have managed to keep fruiting through the cooler months, with the help of a homemade hothouse (more on that later), and I have been slowly watching these round bottomed babies turn from green to luscious red. With the need for a midmorning snack, and these looking too good to leave any longer, the idea of a simple morning tea of tomato on toast, with a pinch of salt and pepper, was enough to get these tastes buds excited.
Yes, it was amazing.
I always love trying a new recipe that will hopefully become a family favourite and extend my repertoire just a little further. After eating the most amazing Spanish Tortilla in Barcelona last year, in a tiny, no-frills cafe, I wanted to be able to recreate this delicacy at home. The kiddoes renamed it "Chip Pie". For a first attempt, the results were pretty pleasing, but I think I will still keep searching for another recipe. Any suggestions?
I honestly think it was even better the next day for lunch, but don't tell the others.
Another one to add to the list.
But the most exciting and wonderful first was that our girls are growing up.
We followed the delighted, and almost hysterical squeals of "Come quick!", out to the coop and found this tiny, precious egg sitting in the box.
After photos and excited phone calls to grandparents, it was decided to add the egg to the tortilla. It was a very good decision.
I hope you all had a fabulous start to the week.
