Hello, everyone. This is one of the three bean-themed recipes I made when we had our glut of beans. I really wanted to post it since I know next year, when we are in bean glut, I will have no idea where to find it. One of the other recipes is on a similar vein but it has more ingredients. This one is dead simple and tasted just as good.

Home at last …
It certainly feels like I have been away. I have definitely been away from both this blog and Bridgetown. I hadn’t been here for ages.
As you know, I had been in Perth cleaning and gardening and packing. The house now looks so good it was very hard to sign the management authority – there were even a few tears. But I did it and now we are looking for tenants. Normally, that would be the easy part but Perth is a boom-bust town and, at the moment, it is going through a ‘bust’ so it is harder than usual to find tenants. Continue reading
Chilli chicken with snake bean salad and a chilli coconut milk dressing
Now that I have decided on a theme for this blog, I am on a roll.
Next to ripen in the vegie patch were the snake beans and, as with everything else, they came with a vengeance. One day there weren’t any and the next day there was a bucket load. I decided to grow them because, in previous years, I had noticed a number of bloggers having success with snake beans. It turns out they are as easy to grow as all other beans and are particularly tasty.
Green bean and cherry tomato salad
It has taken me a while, a long while in fact, to work out the focus, if any, of this blog. If it does have a focus (which I doubt), it is the provision of tasty recipes to use, or preserve for later use, home-grown (or seasonally purchased) produce. Continue reading
Tuna and warm potato salad
It is summer-glut time and this year it is beans, beans and more beans. I didn’t have many last year but, this year, it is beans galore and they all seem to have come at once. Off to Eat Your Books I went and typed “beans”! I wanted either a pasta dish or a salad. I found quite a few recipes worth trying, including this one. It was a real jackpot. It is dead easy to make, a meal in itself and very tasty. We have already had it twice this summer.
