I finally got my purple carrots from the market though not the garden. There are 3 or 4 growing in the garden but that is it. Thank you local cat.
It has been a full on week with Dr’s and Orthodontists. Oversea suppliers and customers busy busy busy. Meals have been rushed because I have been late home every night. Amazing really that we didn’t end up with any takeaway. But the good man and I worked together and we managed to feed everyone decent food every night.
Tonight we had a beef casserole cooked by both of us. The good mans arm is out of action. So I chopped the onion, garlic and mushroom. The butcher had already cut up the meat. Then the good man cooked the dinner while I was at work and running no.1 son to the orthodontist.
So what to have with the beef casserole, mashed potatoes of course and the amazing purple carrots topped with fresh mint.
What I loved about the purple carrots was that they were purple all the way through and when they were cooked they were still a rich purple colour.
Fresh herbs growing in the garden make such a difference they are easy to grow and are there ready and waiting to be picked and added to a meal in seconds.
Intense flavors, healthy lovely food green and leafy growing in the garden.
