in no particular orderPosted: July 13, 2008
*I’ve been putting up food like, um, like….something. Frozen blueberries, cherries, broccoli, and kale all stacked up in the freezer. The preserved lemons and sauerkraut turned out well and are done fermenting and pickling and are now at home in the fridge. My neighbors are giving me their box of local produce the week after next when they go to the beach, so I’m all set to blanch and freeze away.
*July is a good time for iced tea and I came across this, while looking for stuff about kombucha (so good, but wow, it seems like a lot of trouble to make). So there’s rice cooling on a plate right now. I need to go finish it up.
*there are new babies – here and here. The former being here in Virginia. I got called to be at the birth, because they couldn’t find their friend who was supposed to be there. Lucky for me! And lucky for the friend, she skidded in about 4 minutes before the baby came. Additionally, yay! Cakie has a brother!
* LB and I had the most amazing dinner yesterday, post The Birth (yes, it only took the middle portion of the day, this birth – noon to 12:53 to be exact – there was time to do all sorts of other things). We had big-eye tuna bits sauteed in olive oil with salt and pepper and yellow squash with rainbow chard and garlic scapes. You’ll just have to believe me that it was honestly one of the best meals I’ve ever eaten. Honest.
*then we had gimlets on the back deck with IB because that’s how we roll around here.
Ok, four of those five items were about things you can put in your mouth, so there’s my NaBloPoJuly for today. Pictures of the sauerkraut and company coming, I swear.
