A bit of cooking...

This week I didn't do too much cooking - mostly simple things like salads, or potatoes with peas and carrots and some kind of a protein. But I did try another batch of plum jelly - this time it turned out properly with clear bright color and just a little bit too sweet for me, which means hubby will like it.
 Then I also made european version of the potato salad with Red Bliss potatoes, home grown peas and carrots, diced onions and pickle and diced cooked eggs. It's called "Olivie" and supposed to have cubed ham but I didn't feel like adding it and I used fresh peas instead of canned as normally would.
 And this not quite from the garden but some parts were - cucumbers and scallions and blueberries came from the garden. My hubby loves seafood and I love spoiling him so seared scallops over salad with tomatoes, strawberries and avocado - that was his dinner last night. He didn't complain one bit :)

  3. Everything looks absolutely delicious! I've never heard of that potato salad before. I think I'm going to have to do some research. It sounds great.
