Fresh from the garden purple podded peas and a couple of mammoth snow peas. This will probably be the last of them as the plants were damaged in the freakishly strong winds  we just had. I was lucky and got to spend a day at the beach Cremorne and then Clifton (below) , totally perfect beach  weather the water was warm and almost no wind. I spent most of the time covered head to toe and with a layer of super extra strong sunscreen designed to attract a thick layer of sand, probably part of the sunscreen rating. 

This is my favorite way to serve meatballs,  you can do this with any sized meatball I just like small ones. The  basic recipe is called Bitkis, they look a little yellow but that's just the grated carrot . All you do is arrange  the meatballs in a single layer or leaning one against the next for larger patties. Cover with  cooked tomato  sauce  I use the plain bottled tomatoes from the supermarket. Add some garlic slithers, fresh thyme sprigs (push into sauce) . Spoon some firm plain yoghurt, decorate with some parsley  and cracked pepper heat until  bubbling, serve with some mashed potatoes.
