Divine given creativity – recipes, knitting patterns and alike

It’s started….

allotment haulWell, you turn your back on your allotment for 3 days whilst your friend gets married and another has her 40th birthday party, and the courgettes take over the world!

Am now going back through all my recipes on here and seeing what would be a nice thing to make next!

Courgette Bread & Tomato and Courgette Soup may well be on the table tomorrow evening.

2 new Courgette Recipes for you – Courgette and Lemon Drizzle Cake & Tomato and Courgette Soup

We popped to the allotment yesterday to dig up some more new potatoes, prune the cherry tree, pull some beetroot, and ….. you’ve guessed it, pick some courgettes!   Only 6 yesterday, so it seems to be slowing down a little.

In a flurry of inspiration today and a little experimentation, Courgette and Lemon Drizzle Cake was made and swiftly followed by Tomato and Courgette Soup.

We had to make a second Courgette and Lemon Drizzle cake as the first one was snuffled down pretty quickly by some lovely friends.   The second one was only partially eaten straight away, and I don’t think tastes quite as nice the next day (but then I am a bit of a perfectionist – those who shared it with us seemed to like it ).   And all of our family loved the soup that was made by my husband and eldest daughter – they should get the credit for making it after my whimsical suggestion that we could use up some more courgette in it!!
