More adventure in the garden

March 13th, 2008 at 11:12 am

Well tonight, I was able to harvest a leek, capsicum, some chillies, more tomatoes and eggplants. Also got some more basil and parsley. DH was also able to get 2 figs from our fig tree.

Tonight's dinner was chicken with leek and figs cooked in a dash of balsamic vinegar, a little bit of chicken stock and a dollop of cream, then garnish with parsley. Only used about 200g of chicken breast. The chicken stock and cream were leftovers and did to finish it off before it goes off. All up this dish probably only cost about $2.50.

To go with it was spaghetti pasta with home made basil pesto, which I made a few weeks ago and have just put in the freezer. This probably cost about 70cents. There are some left overs which I will have for lunch tomorrow at work.

Also made some more tomato and basil salad. Maybe 10cents for the extra virgin olive oil! ha!

Tonight's dinner all up cost about $3.40 ($1.70 p/person). This also includes my lunch tomorrow. DH will be going out for lunch tomorrow, he is invited to a farewell lunch. He will have pay for his own food though.

Oh tomorrow night's dinner will be pizza. I will be using the eggplant and capsicum, which I've already grilled tonight. I will write more about it tomorrow.

    Hee hee! I'm still jealous though! My big goal is to try and grow bell peppers and tomatoes on my 18th-floor balcony this year...
