Mexican Salsa

We had some of these in our veg box this week...

A tomatillo with it's husk still on...

Looks like a green tomato with the husk removed...

The insides look a bit aubergine-ish...

We whizzed 8 of them up with 2 green chillies..

And added 2 chopped red onions, a teaspoon of brown sugar & the juice of 2 limes ... 

It makes a delicious spicy, sour salsa & goes well with chilli & cornbread!

Here's the recipe from the veg box folk.

Enjoy!

Ah I saw them on the website, but they were not in my veg box. If I get some next week, I shall definitely try that.
Maybe only 1 chilli tho, as I am just a beginner LOL

It's my lovely wife's 45th birthday today and it's great to see her having such a nice time.  We had a bit of a lie-in, then Kay said that she'd like to go to the new Eden Project Cafe in St. Austell for breakfast.  
Having dined there recently, we were aware of their "Book Swap" area.  Choose a book from home you wish to donate, write a brief piece in the inside cover and put it in the Swap Section. Then, if there's a book you fancy, take it home. Kay donated her favourite book "The Complete SAS Guide to Interrogation Techniques". I made that up. She actually donated the wonderful book "The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, only because the last page is missing. Just joking. It was in pristine condition . I suggested selling it at a car boot sale instead but  then she gave me one of her famous looks and I shut up. Kay wrote in the cover about how good the book is and how she hoped that whomever took it would find …

Lights Out!

We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?

Rural Life

We live in a small hamlet of 14 households - all on one lane, but spread out & mainly detached, apart from the 3 barn conversions across from us. There have been a number of changes in the six years we have lived here, people moving in & out, houses renovated & extended, but for us - the worst thing is that the last few newcomers are city people. They have all spent thousands of pounds modernising their homes & turning them into fortresses. Fences & gates have been erected, security lights & alarms fitted...
I suppose most folks will think that they are being sensible, but it's changing the way our little place looks & feels & to me it seems that these modern extras will invite unwanted attention - it suggests there's something worth taking.What was once a simple, quaint little hamlet is fast becoming yet another exclusive part of rural Cornwall.  Only 3 of the 14 households are Cornish & they are all related, the rest (apart from us) are well …
