Another new meal and more nettles

I went to pick another bowl of nettles this morning which are now in the dehydrator. Whilst I powder mine when dry as I use them in smoothies, if you put gloves on, then crumble, you will get flakes. These can be used as tea in their own right or added to regular tea, or added to baking, cooking, you name it.

The next meal we tried was White Chicken Chilli, the recipe for which can be found here:

Had to use butter beans instead of haricot or other white beans. Also made a bit of a slip up as I forgot to alter the method to take into account using only half the ingredients. This gave less juice but again, a lovely meal which we will do again.

Our lunch was this:


I have just started to use her meal prep ideas for carrots and celery, storing them in jars of water in the fridge. So far so good, still nice and crisp.

  1. I'm glad I'm not the only one who forgets to halve everything in a recipe, only with me it's usually the garlic. It's a good job I like the stuff but I go around with breath that could kill a vampire with one sneeze :-)

    1. I write the half measures against the normal but then forget to adjust the method!

  2. Putting my hand up as another who forgets to halve everything. Sometimes I figure I should be doing the cooking for one as that would give us both more than enough to eat sometimes.

    God bless.

    1. Some recipes are way too much, others a bit too little. Never know until I make them.

  3. Thanks for the recipes. I loved your lunch. My grandmother used to cut up carrots and other things and store them in water in the fridge. Until now I'de never heard of anyone else doing that.

    1. Hadn’t heard of it before but before I owned a fridge, I used to store everything in waterproof containers in cold water.

    1. Should be able to eat more like that every day once the weather warms up a bit.
