Tomato plants and butternut squash scones...


Well we've been away from the flat for a few days over Easter again so the plants have been having to fend for themselves. I was a little worried that when we came back they would have suffered a little from a lack of tlc but they seem to have survived remarkably well and the tomato plants have come on leaps and bounds. Their tomato plant shaped leaves have got so much bigger in just a few days.


We were back in the flat briefly yesterday morning and I got busy in the kitchen for a couple of hours baking bread to go with scrambled eggs and streaky bacon for a quick breakfast and making some parmsean and paprika scones, made with grated butternut squash rather than butter, to take around to a family Easter lunch/dinner yesterday afternoon. Blueberry pancakes are on the menu for a late breakfast this morning and the batter is sitting on the side aerating at the moment...

  2. There's plenty left if you want to come round for one! Made 1/3 of the mixture and still had way more than we could manage...

  3. Hi Amy, thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog. I love the Nigel Slater's Tender as well, it's a great inspiration. I'm impressed with what you are growing so far and I look forward to following and seeing how you get on...I've found veg growing quite addictive. For every disaster you have there will always be a success that makes it all worth while! The scones look great, I could just eat one of those, I bet they smell gorgeous too!
