As we have been away it is only now I have had a chance to paint my “monthly” picture.
We returned from our few days in Switzerland to an abundance of runner beans and courgettes. Pickled courgette, courgette soup, courgette salad . . . . . . I have been giving beans away left right and centre. I made some pretty tasty courgette and pea soup yesterday – recipe attached.
I also, at the instigation of my daughter, had a go at making rose hip syrup, which I had never done before. It is quite nice on my morning porridge! These little orange gems are in abundance at the moment as well. Inspired by the beautiful colours I did a pen and watercolour illustration of “hips”; a branch of which I took to my art group the other night. Quite pleased with the outcome for a “quickie sketch”.
Any way I will pop onto the recipe page and record the soup recipe …..
