Ohhh and oops!

Oohhhh, or maybe mmmmm, or both?! We've been to the woods again. This time we came back with wild garlic, nettles and jack-by-the-hedge. So this afternoon I made some.....

...wild green's soup,

some nettle and jack-by-the-green flatbreads,

some wild garlic butter (which I then wrapped in 25g pieces in greaseproof paper and put in a box in the freezer),

and some fish cake mix ready for tea :o). I have still got enough wild garlic left to make some more soup and some flavoured oil.

Here's my blanket so far. I know this doesn't really give you any idea of size etc but I couldn't be bothered to unroll it! I'm loving the simple repetitiveness of this...just rows and rows of treble crochet. Now, do you wanna see the oops?

I wasn't supposed to be buying any more wool (other than a couple of balls to go with the blanket) but just look at all that...for a fiver!!!!!! All wool mixes too. Charity shops are great.

I don't think that's allowed to count as an oops. *grins*

And yummmm to the wild cookery... Mouth wateringly good!

That's not an ooops, that's definitely a "Yay!!"

I love the foody things you've been doing. I bought Richard Mabey's book last year and am determined to find food in and around the farm. I started the other day, but impressing DH by picking chickweed and eating it. He decided that it would make a lovely salad! That wild garlic butter is making my mouth water! xx

Lovely garlicky idea's.
And as for the wool - then surely it doesn't count if it came from the charity shop?
