I've cooked fennel! I used to have fennel in my summer green salads years ago - pre hubby and kids so when I picked up the fennel on Saturday at the market on clearance for 2 baby heads for $1 hubby turned up his nose. I continued to buy it anyway, but stopped short at the artichokes. I'll have to surprise him with those I think and find a delicious recipe to either enhance or disguise them!
Tonight I made the chorizo and fennel hotpot from this months' good taste magazine. Easily made. I actually prepared it this morning - but I used 2 chorizo sausages instead of the 1 called for in the original recipe. I also after preparing it, put in an oven proof dish and stirred through the cannellini beans - I'll reheat tonight with a bit of Parmesan on top.
Other seasonal triumphs this week continue to be oranges - we've eaten a dozen this week! We never seem to have enough in the house! Same goes with lemons - I'm going to make a lemon meringue pie tomorrow and there's been a request for lemon delicious tonight... and let's not forget the 2 batches of pumpkin scones I've made!
Oh the piece de resistance is definitely the rhubarb streusel I made - oh lordy - sooo good. It's like a buttercake bottom with sweet melty rhubarb centre and crumble top. (sorry the pic was from those-days-I-had-to-use-my-phone-camera!)
