    I hate pests
    Sorry to her something is eating your herbs. I hate garden pests. Something is eating my basil too, but for some reason it doesn’t eat the Thai basil. This sounds delicious, and your method of hanging up the basil to keep it away from the snails is quite clever!

    I’m sorry to hear that your herb patch has been beseiged with pests, but thankfully you were clever enough to rescue your basil this way, and as a result share this dish with us!

    Courgette fritters is one of my mother’s most successful tricks to get my supposedly courgette hating niece and nephew to eat them. She calls them simply fritters :-) and served them with a basic tomato sauce.

    Schade, dass mit den Kräutern. Meine gedeihen in diesem Jahr trotz der Hitze super.
    Das Rezept wird sicher einen Stammplatz in meiner Küche erhalten, weil ich Zucchini über alles liebe. :)
