Seven Courgettes

Harvested my first seven courgettes from the garden today.

So tonight we will be eating....

Courgette and Bacon Frittata

I usually use 1 medium sized courgette per person, and 1 slice of bacon per person and adjust the eggs  accordingly.

Heat some veg oil in a non-stick frying pan, fry courgettes, bacon and a large onion chopped finely, for a few minutes until the onion is soft and golden.

For the frittata mix:

2 tbspn fresh thyme
1 tbspn fresh rosemary
2 eggs
salt and pepper

Whisk together, then pour over the courgettes, bacon and onion in the pan, season a little more if required - depends on the saltiness of your bacon usually.

Cook over a low heat for about 4 minutes, or until set, then grill for a couple of minutes to brown the top, garnish with a few fresh leaves of thyme.

The frittata will be accompanied tonight with some freshly dug salad potatoes, boiled in their skins, then once cooled, a couple of tablespoons of mayonnaise stirred through them, seasoned and a liberal sprinkling of freshly chopped dill fronds.

Off to watch the fireworks later for our local town's summer festival, bands in the street, a fair with rides, tables and chairs in the road outside the cafe, free fireworks set to music.  Lovely.
