The Good Life
Okay, we don't have a lemon tree (yet), and I freely confess that although we have been known to grow some cobs in the greenhouse, these I had to buy from the supermarket - but see that fish? It was caught in the river running through our garden. Both the spuds and the spinach are also home grown.
Raised a City girl, I had hardly eaten much organic produce before. not until we moved over here. The difference in taste between mass produced fruit and veg as opposed to the home grown variety is amazing - everything is so much sweeter, and of course, much more fresh.
I also find farmed fish doesn't have anywhere near the same flavour as those that are caught in the wild. (No, I didn't catch this one, I leave that to those who enjoy the sport, I am simply happy to serve up the end result!)
We ate this fish last night, poached in a wine stock, and served up with a cucumber and dill sauce.
My big sis' and her grandson are over from England for the week, so we are out and about, having a fine old time. We are setting off for the Comedy Club tonight.. I'll have much to post and report back soon!
