Interested in finding out what fish are the best options to eat and still support sustainable fisheries? The Sustainable Table linked with Goodfishbadfish have provided a simple list called Switch the Fish which can help you on your way. You can find out additional information on the Goodfishbadfish site.
BTW here are some lovely home-smoked mussels that fit right in the ‘good fish’ category.
These served as an entree for our truly retro main, just perfect for a cold autumn night in Canberra – Fondue!
Well we’re still waiting for the onset of the cold weather, but in the interim there’s been lots of preparation of new crops. Our broad beans, garlic and carrots have been planted and seeds of broccoli and turnips are sprouting in the polyhouse.
We are leaving our pumpkins on the vines until the frosts start.
There are still plenty of veggies to be harvested. A quick whip around the plants we were tidying up yielded this haul of zucchini’s, potatoes, eggplants and warrigal greens.
Dinner that night was a cheesy vegetable bake, stuffed zucchini flowers and roasted potatoes.
I was really chuffed to receive two very thoughtful birthday presents today, both of which had their origins in our garden. They were a ripe Styrian Pumpkin from my friend Bish whose pumpkins have grown while ours have not. This pumpkin was grown from seed which we had grown for Bish’s sons school fete. These pumpkins are grown for their seeds rather than their flesh. The seeds have no hulls so you have peptitas with no pain!
The second was a jar of homemade Green Tomato relish from my friend D. Again the tomato seed originated at Chez Fork.
