I ran away from teaching to the country to grow veggies. There are also some chooks and a pair of troublesome goats who were so much trouble they had to go! My simple green life isn't always as simple or as green as I'd like...but I keep trying!

One hundred percent

Dinner last night was just a plate of roast veggies, some beans and silverbeet with a little gravy.
A modest meal
no fancy recipe
no complicated sauces
but 100% home grown.

Simply picked, 
and eaten 
in front of the fire.


  1. ...and you didn't invite me because...? (Looks delish!)

  2. You have every reason to be proud of your100% result!

  3. Oh nice!! I want a fire to eat in front of!!

  4. looks and sounds like a perfect meal

  5. My absolute all-time favourite dinner.

  6. These are the best kinds of meals.

  7. No better meal, no better place.

  8. Looks like a great selection of home-grown veg. Did you by any chance have them with home-made bread? Maybe a bit of Membrillo for pudding...?

    I've just bought some "Lazy Housewife" beans, based on your eulogies of them.

  9. I need a 'like' button. The beetroots look fabulous :)

  10. Mark, I am sure you will be delighted with the lazy housewife beans...mine are still going. Slower but a handful every two or three days.
    Hearts-in- in Asia...roast beetroot is just so sweet.

  11. Roasted veggies are absolutely one of my favs! Yours look mouth watering.

    Love the new look of your blog too.

  12. If your not carefull you will have a coach load coming to dinner and then what would cook say?

  13. So when was it that I am being adopted? I hope we get to have a pavlova in celebration of the event. I was thinking about your food percentages (they were your dad's weren't they?), and I managed to hit a 50% for brekkie the other day. One banana and then eggs and bacon and toast... banana and eggs home grown, bacon and toast not... although a toast tree would be great, I'll have to look into that.

    I can't wait to have a 100 percenter... I can only hope to one day reach your dizzying vegetable heights Miss Hazel :D

  14. I may have to put off the adoption because the house will be full in soe and his family are coming over from the States so i can meet my grand daughter!

    You could increase your percentage with home made bread. Please make sure you see Monday's is a special one just for you. :-)

  15. How wonderful Hazel! Looks like a perfect meal!
    Saw the sign up at the house the other day. It's even lit up at night. Would have been a wonderful backyard to grow up in!

  16. Looks delicious! How satisfying it is to eat all homegrown :)

  17. Could there be a better meal? I don't think so. Looks delicious.
