Give me just a little more time

I had a doctor’s appointment this morning, which meant I had a bit of extra time before I had to leave the house. What a difference an hour and a half makes!

imageI made a bolognese sauce for dinner, to serve with my bargain Approved Foods pasta which I have in large quantity. This was made with entirely home grown ingredients, apart from the beef. No room to raise cattle here! (Although it was yellow stickered and a bargain). I used home grown onions, peppers, courgettes, tomatoes and herbs. I love that!

I also chopped up and froze two big bags of courgettes to use in soups and stews over the winter, and picked the latest batch of tomatoes and runner beans. I need to freeze more of those as well as soon as I get the chance.

Then I sat in the doctor’s waiting room to write my blog. I am well ahead of the game! Still have the day job to catch up on though…

    I’ve been wondering how to freeze courgettes. Mrs S apparently just chops them up and freezes them but according to everything I’ve read, courgettes just turn to mush when they’ve been frozen.

      Actually they don’t freeze well. I usually make soup and freeze it, but if I am short of time I cube them and freeze them to make add to soups and stews through the winter. They aren’t very good in anything else. I have tried saut√©ing a few and then freezing them, as recommended by a reader if this blog, but I haven’t had to use these yet so not sure if it will make a difference.
