Again, with visitors most of September and October in the UK, the spending went completely adrift. But with November upon us we need to watch the budget again and with all the freezers full of garden produce we need to eat what we’ve grown this year and last. It’s fruit we seem to have the most of, figs, plums, blackberries, redcurrants, raspberries, rhubarb and apples so to use some of them up, we’ve started making smoothies which make a lovely change for breakfast. We threw in plums, blackberries, squidgy bananas, honey, vanilla sugar, yoghurt and a splash of milk to make this delicious deep purple smoothie.
We also have an abundance of squashes this year which thankfully keep for a long time. They make the most amazing silky soup, I’ll post a recipe soon.
