The kind of tea that I will be eating in my garden.... when I finally move.

In case you didn't already know (ha), I am about to move house. Amongst a few other things, this means that we will finally have a garden - with grass and everything. It's only small, but it's more than enough for Gav and I to have the odd alfresco tea. I'm also dreaming of whiling away the odd afternoon with nothing but the birds and a couple of Aperol spritz to keep me company.

Anyhoo, for me eating outside calls for light meals and fresh flavours - which is what I also fancied for tea last night. I had a go at this slow cooked cauliflower and I also cooked some broccoli with garlic, chilli and anchovies as per the recipe here.

Both were delicious and, served with bread, olives and a salad of tomatoes, garlic and fresh thyme, they made a more than ample dinner. I do think I may have gone overboard on the garlic intake though... so keep your distance for a bit!
