As this is a rather orange entry. It got me thinking what word did we use in the English speaking world to describe an orange before it was named after the orange fruit. Apparently, the colour orange was referred to as geoluhread (yellow-red) and the first recorded use of orange as a colour name in English was in 1512, in the court of King Henry VIII.
This photograph was taken when I was in Kirriemuir a few months ago for work. Some of you may have heard of Kirriemuir. It’s the birthplace of J M Barrie author of Peter Pan. I got to see Peter Pan statue in the town centre, but did not get the opportunity to snap a photograph. The first time he was surrounded by a number of people were just hovering, not surprising when the statue is located outside a chippie, takeaway and a pub; and the afternoon I was leaving, it was raining, no in fact it was pouring. Follow this link if you want to see what else I failed to capture and share in a photograph.
Anyway, this recipe was made a little while ago in an attempt to use up what I had. First it began as a 'mint-carrot salad' accompanying another meal, then its evolved into something more substantial. Some new potatoes, steamed and and a few broad beans with a little seasoning of salt and pepper. It seems like a rather lazy salad, but I’m a firm believer of using what is in the fridge and vegetable basket first and it was welcomed when our bellies were rumbling.
I am submitting this simple Potato and carrot salad to Jacqueline of Tinned Tomatoes for this month's No Croutons Required challenge.
