Were our sheep too generous with their gifts to our garden? We are getting carrots that really earn their name.
So yesterday they were honoured to become our evening dinner, a minestrone soup... We have got very fond of the yellow carrots because they seem to keep well in the cellar all winter - originally the carrots were yellow, so in the Middle Ages nobody had yet seen an orange one... (Sorry, a historian on the loose!)
Our favourite kitchen machine is this vehicle that I found from a local flee market with one euro. It does not need any electricity, it is functional and the result is beautiful.
Carrots, potatoes, celeriac, parsnip, onions - our mostly used vegetables - and some Hungarian pasta, a suvenier from a trip, and voilà, a minestrone with some honey bread!
There is nothing better than a soup on a chilly evening with a mist landing on the fields - and a warm fire on the stove.
