It's been a good year for the marrows.....

Well strictly speaking, it's been a good year for the overgrown courgettes! The constant rain we've had has meant that they could be neat, modest, little courgettes one day and massive marrows the next - we're drowning in them and we've only got five plants!

So some creative cooking required. We very quickly exhausted all of the usual fried, steamed, stuffed and curried recipes so are now onto the more exotic.....chutney, soup etc.! Then on Saturday I saw a recipe on the telly box........


Not a very good photo I know, but it was yum. Fillet of fish lightly fried in olive oil and served over part boiled then olive oil fried seasoned new potatoes and courgettes with a sauce vierge made from some really unusual tomatoes donated by our next door neighbour, masses of parsley from the garden, shallotts and a small dash of juice from a lime. Ooooooh.

There are two more huge (2 foot long) marrows to cut and about fifteen courgettes......any more ideas anyone.....please? I've given loads away already, even the neighbours are "marrowed out"!

Seriously though.....If you've one to spare....Perhaps not a 2ft one but say 24inches.....! Always come by and pick it up....! :).
