Home grown food

Working flat out on the book at the moment. So I needed a simple and easy dinner, and a dinner that could be served whenever the girls got home from dancing. Their lessons are a bit longer now near the end of term. Was pleasantly surprised at what I cooked up:

Free range (organic?!) chicken in the slow cooker, then closer to time grated in section of home grown pumpkin and zucchini. I have bad child hood memories of zucchini and the kids don't like pumpkin. So though good way to get us eating the things we avoid and learning that there not bad. Flavored with lemon thyme, lemon balm and a squeegeed lemon to provide some flavoring. I have to admit I also put in a packet of onion soup for thickening the sauce and adding flavor.

This was served on brown rice and fresh asparagus (not home grown, but put plants in this year).

So all and all a very simple meal with minimal prep, maximum flexibility, tasted really good and tender plus high in nutrition.

Should taken a photo! Sorry didn't think about it at the time
