I am still rocking some relatively light meals that are a little light on the meat front after eating bucket loads of the stuff in the last couple of weeks. We have spent the last few days without any electricity with a scheduled power outage in our village from 8am till 4pm, fortunately this allowed us to really get the garden straight and do a load of chores that we have been putting off. We have also been out shopping far more than usual, primarily in the aim of not getting round to those chores I just mentioned. On our journeys we happened upon some awesome salmon and just had to buy it. This salmon pasta dish is a but of a twist on a dish that I tend to make with canned salmon but it really does sing when paired with fresh salmon.
I really love this time of year, most of the remaining ingredients for this great salmon pasta dish are all courtesy of months of hard work. Out tomatoes, herbs, and onions are all looking pretty spot on this year, the herb success is more than a little unusual, we have been doing this for 7 years and always fail at growing herbs… This year we have loads of them, no idea why, we have done nothing different, the conditions have largely been the same as usual and I have not made an sacrifices, so I am just putting it down to Mother Nature being the usual fickle witch!
Not only is the produce all looking pretty damn foxy outside we are approaching the height of summer which means our workload really does scale back. Most of our early crops are out of the ground and set aside for later use. The long hot and dry days mean that the grass is not growing which means it no longer takes 6 hours to mow the garden. All we now need to do is water every couple of days, harvest a few bits and pieces and enjoy the summer and we have lots planned and I am looking forward to getting out into the Hungarian Countryside. May I be so bold to suggest that you hit me up on that there Instagram thingywatsit, I do not just post food over there so if you want a wee slice of Hungarian summer hop on over and follow me!
