First, my lazy passata which is basically skinned tomatoes,cooked for a while, then when I think everything looks thick enough, pop it in jars, and re-boil them to seal.
They look quite pretty when raw....
but boiling them turns the pink-shelled beans grey so I popped them out of their skins.
On to dinner - an almost free goulash-style meal using our allotment-grown squash and red pepper, onions, mixed batch of cannelini and borlotti beans, tomatoes and potatoes.
I used a small amount of smoked paprika, instead of my normal home-grown chilli which can be too hot, a small piece of pork from the Sunday roast, some left-over breadcrumbs and cheese for topping - so very nearly a 'free' dinner.
And, last thing before settling down with my knitting, setting up cucumber and onion to soak in brine overnight before pickling tomorrow.
