Tess Raine: Day 2

7th April, 2014 —   

School canteen day. Kids happy to give up canteen for the day to take ‘local’ food….more power to Pete and Lil!

Lil’s lunchbox…leftover pumpkin patties, apple muffin, apple and banana. (Not a slither of devon in sight)

Al’s lunch – a garden salad garnished with what looks like a whole bulb of crushed garlic – bags not sitting next to him on the bus!

Our own pastured chicken (rooster actually – they all look the same when frozen!) and veggies — at Peppers Mountain Fine Produce.
