60 Weeks Until ....Number 17 and 18

Tonight I made a rice salad.   Well to be precise

Wild Rice and Cranberry Salad with Balsamic Dressing 
200 gram of wild rice blend (I used Sunrise) cooked and cooled
1 large apple diced
1 stalk celery finely chopped
1/2 cup dried cranberries
handful parsley
50 grams toasted pine nuts

Mix all together well

For the balsamic dressing
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon whole grain mustard
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Shake the dressing well and stir through the salad.

Enjoy.   This one is delicious and I shall repeat it.

Courgette and Feta Fritters

4 medium courgettes grated
90 gram feta cheese crumbled
3/4 cup fresh breadcrumbs
2 eggs
1 tablespoon fresh herbs -  your choice

Squeeze out excess moisture from grated courgettes.   Combine all ingredients  and mix well.
Spray a non-stick frying pan with old.  Cook heaped tablespoons of batter over a medium heat until golden.
Serve with a salad of tomato, red onion and fresh mint.

This is tasty and quick but may not be repeated in this house.   My old recipe for Courgette Fritters (sans feta) is more to the liking of the HD3QBEM and moi.


  1. I'm so impressed! Your cooking and sewing skills are those of a professional.

  2. Love the sound of the first recipe ~ quick and easy and healthy - perfect for summer!
    If you take the feta out of the second one (and I soooo understand why) would you replace it with just tasty cheese instead ?!? ... J
