Crumbs of goodness....

My garden doesn't seem to be as excited about growing as I am.

The only plants putting any effort in are my broad beans and my strawberries who are happily flowering despite only being planted a few weeks ago.

May annoys me. I am putting in hours of work and seeing little return. Before I know it, it will be July and I will be overwhelmed with lettuces and courgettes but I want them now! For now I'll have to continue stopping at farm shops....

Asparagus with chorizo crumbs.....(serves 1)
7 asparagus spears
50g/2oz chorizo
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

In a pan of boiling water drop the asparagus in. Cook for around three and a half or four minutes depending of the size of your spears.

Run a knife down the side of the chorizo and remove the skin. Pull out the contents and either process or chop finely into crumbs.

Fry in a dry pan, stirring until crispy. Drain the asparagus and pour the crumbs over.

Dress with a little balsamic vinegar.


  1. Ah, but just think of those strawberries to come in the not too distant future - yum!

  2. It is hard to be patient in Springtime!
