After partcipating in Belinda's Back-to-Basics last year, I thought I might participate in Daphne's Harvest Mondays. It will at least give me a little bit of focus rather than being all over the place all of the time. Hopefully.
My Harvest Monday is actually posted on Tuesday but is what I harvested Monday afternoon for our dinner. All up there was 1.242 kg / 2.74 pounds of bounty from the garden in my little basket.
We had an Hungarian Beef casserole for last nights dinner so I accompanied it with a creamy mash of potatoes- Sapphire and Kennebec. Unfortunately even the temptation of a purply mash cannot make my youngest eat mashed potatoes. She only likes them roasted. Alongside the potatoes were top weight carrots, greensking zucchini and a side salad of rocket, cos, tomatoes, basil, spring onions, lemon cucumber and Hungarian wax capsicum. And just because it was an Hungarian casserole and was flavoured with smoky paprika, I included a gorgeous red paprika chilli from the garden too.
The paprika chilli is quite mild with a thick flesh which I guess makes it good for producing the dried and ground paprika. I have plenty of seeds from the parika chillies for next year and swapping if anyone is interested.
