Side dishes.

Some of the food I cook is a little way out. Tonight’s offerings are a little like that. On the menu after eating out for the last two days are some lovely unusual side dishes!
First up is a fresh beetroot with Capers and Pumpkin seeds.

Lovely how the sweet beetroot and salty capers compliment each other.

Next, is a wholemeal Pasta with feta and green and black olives with Green leaves.

That little mixture in the bowl is a mix of olive oil and red wine vinegar, ready to mix into the Potato mixture.

I sort of like these cold side dishes but it isn’t hot enough in the Uk for me to eat a cold meal. I am serving this up with a Marks and Spencer vegetarian Kiev! I might just also enjoy sautéed new potato in butter and white pepper, with the left over potatoes!
I love all these tasty mixtures and there will be plenty left for lunch. A lovely healthy change of feel good imaginative Food!

Feta and Courgette Quiche for Grown ups.

Having five Chickens means a lot of Eggs! Hence yesterday I was scratching my head on what to do with them all.
I also had a glut of Courgette from my Veg box. A great way to use up both was to make a lovely Quiche.
I was far too lazy to make my own Pastry and remembered I had some Puff pastry in my Freezer.
And Voila!!!!
