My Sunday Photo - 20th March 2106


As some-one who grows fruit and vegetables, keeps animals and enjoys foraging I hope that with each meal I put on the table, there is always something on our plates that I have either grown, reared or foraged.  I almost failed with this massive full English breakfast that Simon requested before he and the boys headed up to Paris to watch England v France in the final of the Six Nations Rugby.  Thank goodness the hens are laying well and that egg was one of ours!

PS - and England won meaning they took the 6 Nations title and The Grand Slam!

  1. So impressed that you're a forager too; that's something I've been reading a lot about recently. Your plate of food does look good!

    1. I love free foraged food - the wild garlic is good at the moment and I reckon we'll be having nettle soup soon.

  2. Now that's what I call a hearty breakfast - and presumably Simon will be returning from Paris delighted with the result!

    1. Oh yes - it was close wasn't it and luckily the boys are spared major teasing at school on Monday!

  5. You didn't mention last night that your boys were there! (And by the way that plate's got the wrong name...it ain't lasagne!!!)

    1. Sorry, I thought I did but then my mind was a bit busy elsewhere! That's a good old Woolworth's plate, I'll have you know, that has also seen a good few lasagnes in its time :)

  6. That's brilliant to be able to use your own food in meals. I must try to get more from my parents' allotment this summer!

  11. That looks so yummy! I have yet to finish a full english breakfast. Theres just so much on the plate to eat! But I think when you are a growing boy you can finish this in one go.

    1. It was good although we had a bit of a baked beans panic and had to get some from a neighbour. Our supplies are down to zero awaiting my next trip back to the UK.

  13. Wow that certainly must have set them off feeling fine.
    I've got a wish that I have my own chickens one day soon. I think it's fabulous to be able to go and collect your own eggs.
    Your boys must have returned home happy bunny's with that result too. All in all I'd say it was a good day for them.

  14. That looks amazing. I am really partial to a nice fry up, or a big breakfast on a weekend. I would love to be able to get eggs from our own chickens, I've heard they taste so much better! x
