The olives are harvested in October, every day of collection cases are brought to the crushing and the next morning you can already taste the oil.

Back to the beautiful season and our vegetable garden begins to produce so many tasty vegetables.
The freshly picked salad is crisp and tender at the same time.

I prepare an abundant bed of salads of various kinds, to which I add carrots, artichokes, celery, spinach, fresh onions, tomatoes olives, tuna or small pieces of chicken or feta cheese or grain flakes in the vegetarian version.
Everything becomes a unique and rich dish to be enjoyed in Spring or Summer.

Rustic vegetable pie
I often bought puff pastry to the supermarket because i love pies with vegetables inside, but since I 've discovered that contain palm oil harmful to health and the environment, I decided not to buy them anymore.
With what to replace the convenient puff pastry from the supermarket ?
One day a friend gave me a quick and easy recipe to make in a few minutes a pasta brisŤ that I found very useful for making pies by myself.
You take 300 gr. of flour , put in a bowl with 90 gr. Of vegetable oil , quickly mix with a fork , then add 90 gr . of water and a splash of white wine .
You amalgamate rapidly and in a few minutes you have a paste to apply and fill it with what you want.
The last cake I made was that I stuffed with vegetable marrows, ricotta and Parmigiano Reggiano.
Bake at 220 degrees for half an hour and enjoy!
Also good for fruit filled .
Meeting with a hedgehog
As I was returning from the garden full of vegetable marrows, basil, tomatoes, cucumbers and onions look a bit who i meet?
In the garden I find a sizeable hedgehog which was quietly eating with relish a loquat fall from the tree.
It ' was an unusual meeting time because usually the hedgehogs are very shy and reserved , they come out at night preferring of darkness protection and rarely they are found around exposed to daylight .
Not at all bothered he continued to eat while I was doing some shots .
Quick and easy recipe
It needs marrows freshly picked in the garden along with the parsley. Wash marrows, cut into long slices in half a centimeter. Meanwhile wash and chop the parsley, uniting him to the grated Parmigiano Reggiano, bread crumbs, a little olive oil, a pinch of salt and mix well. Put on a baking sheet a sheet of parchment paper, grease with a little oil, place the slices of marrows, sprinkle with the preparation, more olive oil and bake for 10-15 minutes at 220 degrees. When the breadcrumbs are browned, marrows are ready. That's quicker to them to say that. Enjoy your meal!
