I can’t believe it’s Friday already!
Time is flying by…
What are your weekend plans?
We’re back in Somerset
for another gorgeous weekend
the hens are incubating a few eggs
so next time we may see little chicks!
Talking of fresh veggies
let’s get cracking on the things we are loving this week…
We had a bunch full last night picked fresh from the garden
and it was delicious!
It’s in season, but not for much longer…
Go grab some British Asparagus – it’s full of fibre, folate, vitamins A,C, E & K as well as Chromium.
Packed full of antioxidants
apparently it helps slow the ageing process…
give me some more!!!
Fresh perpetual Spinach is on the menu tonight
from the garden again
roasted Rhubarb with homemade mango and coconut ice cream
I feel spoilt 🙂

Jamie is on a mission…
Worldwide there are more than 42 million children under the age of five who are overweight or obese.
Children today are the first generation predicted to live shorter lives than their parents.
Pretty bad stats.
So Jamie is asking you to sign a petition to support
compulsory practical food education in schools across the world.
