I thought that I was meant to be working my bread & butter job today, but to my surprise, the shift had been changed - it was a welcome surprise though!
I decided to lay claim to this Monday as a homebody day - do the washing, clean up the factory, water the new vegetable garden and do some cooking.
Perfect timing really, because our Hilbarn box was delivered this morning - now cop an eye full of the massive bunch of Silver Beet - HUGE!

I turned some of the Silver Beet into a delicious, rustic style Silver Beet & Mushroom Pie with a hint of basil - no flour in this baby! (Trying to avoid white flour as much as possible... you'll see that I failed that down the track...)

There was also a bunch of rhubarb in the box too - I have never ever cooked with rhubarb and have only really eaten it in dessert crumble form.

Click for a better view!
I trolled around the internet for some interesting (yet simple) recipes; worked out an easy way to stew the rhubarb and then decided that the apples that were also in the box, should go to good use today - some muffins were in order!

End result:
Silver Beet & Mushroom Pie with Basil.
Stewed Rhubarb in Sugar & Vanilla.
Apple, Rhubarb & Cinnamon Muffins.
