getting ready

A couple of uncrafty shots today, while I continue to get my new line ready to go, which I am hoping to unveil here and in my etsy shop tomorrow. At last! I'm really quite excited to show you what I have been up to. But back to today, the top picture is of a delicious (even if do say so myself) dip I made yesterday from some of the broad beans from the allotment. Broad beans have got to be one of my favourite vegetables now, and I've been looking forward to them being ready to eat for months now. There is still a tiny bit of this left but I think I might have to go and finish it off in a minute! And the second picture shows a very pretty bunch of flowers that Holly picked me from the allotment, they are actually coriander flowers and they smell delicious! : )

The dip looks delicious! I have never heard of broad beans...what do you eat the dip with? I'm curious about these beans now. Can't wait to see what you've been working on!

What a lovely gift from your daughter!

I've never tried fresh broad beans (we call them fava beans). Only frozen and canned...yuck! Rather pasty. I've heard them raved about in Italian food memoirs, like "Over the Tuscan Hills" and I'm dying to try them. They sound so fresh- and what a color!!!

Yummy! I wish I could come over for tea and have some of your dip :)

I'm so excited to see what you've been up to lately :)

We have broad beans here in Australia & they are yummy! I've never had them as a dip before though. I'm intrigued & will have to investigate! Certainly looks delicious :)
