January Challenge: Day 6

Today was a lovely sunny day, too nice for hanging round the house and doing chores, so we jumped in the car and headed to 500m2 for some lunch. We had a lovely lunch of risoni and pumpkin salad with green beans, capsicum, tomato, rocket, bocconcini and basil with a balsamic dressing - delicious!

Then we went out and picked more pumpkin, green beans and cucumbers. It's not often you go to a friend's house and come home with a couple of kilos of free food!

My successful chutney experiment has me thinking of new possibilities, which is good because we're about to be knee-deep in eggplant it seems!

Tonight I used up some more couscous from the cupboard to feed the baby, and had leftovers for dinner.

Most of that is pretty boring, so here's some photos from my little garden:

It was great to see you. Today
I'm trying to use up stuff I have in the fridge/lying on the bench for a vegetarian dinner. I made the kimchi today too!
