Tomatillos and Enchiladas

Ever since living in the desert of Arizona and enjoying the Mexican fair.

I want to try to grow Tomatillos. I had heard you needed to grow then in a green house or a Polly tunnel.

Here in south west of England , I knew it be difficult to grow but with a little help from family and friends, I managed to do it and I wanted to share this with you!

So here we go…

My cousin Simon started growing his tomatillos a green house, as I did some in my garden along the fence where they would be protected.

He had some left over of the greenhouse he had more success. The left overs went to a friend

who had a protected court yard, where it was warm enough for them to actually flower and pollinate which was along a fence.

So here they are!

Roast the tomatillos in a pan with a little bit of green peppers, olives oil, garlic, salt and onions

Chicken cooked in a broth

Cook the tomatillos down them

Then do your Chicken breast poached in broth with fresh herbs and spring onions. Slow chicken and low.

Here you can see rice chicken spring onions and seasoning.

Rap up in neat parcels and bake in the oven,

Here you can see the end result, amazing !

You can eat some, share or freeze for later,

Yummm !

One of my favorite ways to get inspiration…

A hot coffee in a special cafe, in my home town of Bridport, with my favorite creative mags, I’m in heaven.

One outstanding example is UPPERCASE for the Creative and Curious. This labor of love, is one of my favorite places to retreat into beautiful pages, packed full of artist, designers and articles on creative adventurers.

In this magazine are delightful stories and an in-depth look at the creative process by men and women from all around the globe from all walks of life. Beautiful examples of art , beautifully printed in the coloulful magazine from artist such as Richard Mcvetis “Variations of a Stitched Cube” which he talks of the “mapping of space”

This magazine feels so wonderful in your hand the pages smell great and the printing is designed to the highest standard.

Janine Vangool the publisher, editor and designer works so hard, her love of the creative process is so inspirational and enables artist working alone in their studios to be part of a larger creative community.

So, if you are hungry for inspiration and appreciate the journey of the creative processes, if you love prints , patterns, beautiful typography, stitching and examples of rich botanicals look up this wonderful inspiration a magazine.
