My Mum says Hi....
I love popping over to my mum and dads....they only live 5 minutes walk away from me and their house is always abuzz with things happening, neighbours dropping by, the TV blaring really loudly...
Dont get me started on my mum and her TV addiction. Their TV is permanantly fixed onto the Greek Channel especially the Greek talk shows - if you know any Greeks you'll know that we talk very loud and always interupt each other so you can imagine the comotion blarring from the screen....when my brother in law first met my family he asked my sister why we're always shouting at each other, ha! how embarrasing!
The end of Summer is near and I took some pictures of the edible goodies from my parents garden.
Some freshly cut Zuchhini flowers ready to be stuffed with seasoned rice and baked....some ripe figs, these are quite sun damaged and probably the last batch we'll have - so sweet and perfect with Ricotta cheese and honey! My dad's fig tree has been going strong for years now - we've eaten SO many figs (and so have the birds!) Andrew planted one in our backyard but it hasn't been very succesful.
Green Olives from my parents olive tree are soaking in brine, it will be weeks before they are ready for eating. I always serve my green olives with crushed coriander seeds, lots of garlic, olive oil and a splash of white vinegar.
Here is my mum's work-in-progress - a heavy and thick crochet blanket that she is making just for (lucky) me! She's been at it for months and months, its almost finished now... thanks mum!
