This is just over 3lbs of dried Strawberries (plus one large Kiwi) - does not look that many now Not for me unless I syn them - best thing about them is that they do not contain sulphur unlike shop bought ones.

Bought loads of Aspargus from the market at the beginning of this week - it is Asparagus season here in Spain - found out that is what is giving me so many stomach probs due to my Crohns and I thought I was doing healthy SW by eating it.
I can eat loads of bloating making things like peas - beans - lentils - brussels (my favourite veg) cauliflower and broccoli without probs but seems too much Asparagus is not good.
Good weather day on Costa del Sol - went out in 3/4 trousers - sandals - thin sweat shirt but saw holiday makers who think it short and t shirt weather but are really cold as you can see they are holding their arms around their bodies. If it wasn't for the wind it would be the perfect here.

This may sound incredibly stupid, but how do you dry the fruit? Is it just sun dried?
That salad at the top of the page looks absolutely incredible And your ratatouille too!xx

Oooo, like the idea of the rice, egg and cheese crust, will nick that idea, I might put it on the shepherd's pie filling I made and froze.
Hope you didn't get too wet, i's chucking it down here so probably get soaked when taking Sam out tomorrow x

I let it cool then added 2 beaten eggs and and hex's of grated cheese and shoved it on top of the veg. Cooked it at 180c
1 cup brown basmati rice ..... 3 cups water
Wash rice, rinse, drain. Add rice and water to large microwave safe bowl. Microwave uncovered at 100% power for 10 minutes. Reduce power to 50% and microwave another 20 minutes. Fluff with fork and serve.
