Does My Bomb Look Big In This?

Zucchini and Corn Fritters with Melanda Ham, Salsa and Sour Cream



I've been craving zucchini fritters for ages now, so one evening we had a really simple dinner of  Zucchini and Corn Fritters with Melanda Ham, Salsa and Sour Cream which was so filling we only managed to eat two each. The ham is quite lovely, but not as big in flavour as the Vic's Meat's ham we had recently, that said, with the Vic's Meats ham you need to be up for buying 8kg, this one from Feather and Bone can be bought in half kilo pieces. We've even saved the skin and fat for another soup... mmmmm.

I have given up completely in buying large tomatoes, and as a result have been much happier in terms of flavour. It's exciting to have raw tomatoes again, felt like a blast of summer in amongst all this cold weather.

Pork and Veal Meatballs with Gnocchi



Hmmmm maybe I should have taken a process photo. The cheese (we love our new microplane, it revolutionizes grating and I cannot imagine why we didn't change over sooner) and parsley hide lovely home made pork and veal mince meatballs. We had them on gnocchi for something different. The chef made 54 and froze a few batches for other meals. We've been having a real Italian couple of weeks with both reviews and home cooking.
