Last week I shared with you my soft and fluffy gnocchi recipe. Here is what happened to my little pillows of potato goodness, I mixed them up with some of our veggies from the garden and some of our homegrown chicken in a butter sauce. Honestly this meal is 99% from our farm, just the flour and butter is bought.
The only sad thing about this dish is that you can hardly see my efforts of my homemade gnocchi. In a way it’s probably a good thing as they were not too pretty. The taste sure made up for that though.
With the start of the broccoli bursting, last seasons broad beans, freshly shelled peas along with homegrown heritage breed chicken tossed through a lemon (my first from our tree) butter and sprinkled with fresh herbs. Is your mouth-watering yet, mine is and I only ate this a few days ago and now I want it again.
