Hi, welcome to FoodLovers!

Here we are back in lockdown again and let us hope that it isn’t for too long.
My garden is now getting some much needed attention, the tuis are squabbling in the prunus blossom and our highly fragrant almond blossoms are a sign that spring is on its way.
As well as looking forward to our Hawkes Bay cycle trips in late September I am alway planning meals that come from the house. Minestrone Soup using just whatever I have on hand is nutritious and delicious especially with a slab of Parmesan, Rosemary and Garlic Beer Bread or a hot Cheese Scone.

Happy Cooking!
