Back to school today and I can feel the stress levels rising as I get ready.  Thank goodness the end of the school year is in sight.

Yesterday was a very pleasant day.  I had a good chat to Beth who brought round some of her lovely new potatoes.  She said they've been very good this year.  I think next week it will be rhubarb and broad beans - I do hope so, I love them!  It's a fair exchange because each week I make three loaves for her and when the tomatoes come, we will be sharing them.

I'm in a bit of a rush now so will have to stop but I will be back tomorrow.


  1. Hope your first day back is not too fraught.
    I love young broad beans unchucked and cut like runners and then cooked in a little bit of butter/water and a sauteed shallot.

  2. Hope you had a good first day back and that your stress levels have come back down again. Beth's vegetables sound wonderful and you have a good exchange system going there, too! Great idea! :o)
    Hope today goes well, too!

  3. Annabeth, that sounds really interesting, I've never known them cooked like that before.
    Sonja, I just have to accept that the next three weeks will be pretty horrendous, I'm afraid.

  4. Poor you, Joy, I am so sorry to hear this, but thankfully it is not too long until the longer summer break - you are really, really going to need that, aren't you!
    Take great care, hope everything goes well! S.xxxx
