How was your weekend?
Mine was filled with sunshine, blue skies and some sweet pickings from the garden.
While Noosa on the Sunshine Coast was buzzing with the annual Food & Wine Festival being held, we decided to stay away from the crowds and appreciate at home our own humble little somewhat deformed harvest.
I decided to finally pick the corn as it appeared that it had stopped growing in size and it had been attached to the plant for a very long time...
When I peeled away the leaves, inside I found some rather stunted little cobs of golden kernals.
They may look rather odd, but let me tell you they were delicious!
In fact I may go as far as to say it was the sweetest juiciest corn I had ever tasted.
We cooked it up by steaming it and adding a knob of butter and some cracked pepper.
It was a great addition to our roast chicken, roast potatoes and these fresh french beans also from the garden.
Fresh marjoram from the terracotta pot was added to the stuffing and the gravy.
How do you like the pure linen tea towel I found in the opp shop for $1.00?
It still had the label on it...never been used...and nautically gorgeous!
So although we missed out on all the splendors of the Noosa Food & Wine extravaganza, we can say we thoroughly enjoyed our tiny little autumn harvest.
