Congratulations and busy in the kitchen

Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex
on the birth of their little boy.
How wonderful.
Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
And now I am used to the name I think it is really cool.
A couple of weeks ago middle daughter came to me and said,
"Steve has given me this giant marrow and my lot won't eat it, do you want it?" So I said yes, it would be great for the Friday Light meal in a couple of weeks.

Once a month I am on KP (more commonly known as kitchen duty) for Friday Light, at my church. Friday Light is a  community outreach which, among other things, provides a hot meal free of charge for those who come along. We get about 25 regulars with others dropping in at times so I usually prep for about 30.

Once upon a time I cooked a meat dish but I've been relieved
 of that duty and now all I need to do is provide a vege or some
 sort of side dish to go with the meat.
Well the marrow turned into a more substantial type of squash whilst in transit. It is half a metre long and half a metre in circumference! I've used about a third of it.

I really wasn't sure what to do with it so it has been cut and layered in a roasting dish and covered with onion and tomatoes and I'm hoping it will taste okay tomorrow night. Now all I have to do is prepare a large pot of potatoes.

Bon Appetit.



  1. I'm sure you will be delicious and greatly appreciated.

  2. Is that the same as a zucchini?
    I'm sure all will enjoy what you made!

  3. I am also wondering if that is zucchini? You just gave me a wonderful meal idea... This is why I love blogging...

  4. It really is huge! Nice to get creative and make something yummy! How sweet of you to cook for others too! Enjoy your weekend!

  5. That looks very interesting and I'm sure delicious. And yes, I like the new little royal baby's name too. I think it is sweet and perfect for the unique child that he will be growing up in that family. I believe he is going to make a powerful and positive impact upon their world.

  6. It isn't easy to cook for thirty people, your meal seems delicious!
    Happy Mother's Day
