Plentiful fresh dill at the ready outside the front door!
Quite a pungent herb so use sparingly - good in soups, yogurt dressings, salads,
especially potato salads, Havarti cheese, and of course of salmon.
My few tomato plants have not produced much this this year, however I may
get a few Roma later - already earmarked for a nice Caprese salad - and
my generous neighbor is sharing plenty of cherry tomatoes now they are
ripening daily in the heat and sunshine.
A basic recipe in most kitchens (especially if you've fed children!) no matter where
you cook, is of course Macaroni and Cheese. I made this dish over the weekend.
My version actually uses penne rigate, a similar short hollow pasta, but somehow
the cheese(s) sauce clings to it much better than smooth macaroni elbows.
Note I say cheeses, because this recipe uses not only a tasty mature English
Cheddar, but also nutty Swiss Gruyere, and classic Italian Parmigiana Reggiano.
It's a British recipe but with strong European overtones!
It's delicious - and known as 'fit for the Queen.'
No royalty sitting at our table, in fact nobody but us these days sadly.
Hoping your week ahead will have happy moments.
We're staying busy working in the back garden still!
