How’s that for a teaser?
Most of it’s behind me now, so I’m happily looking forward to…dealing with garden produce! Yeah- the garden is finally putting out and we’re getting tomatoes, corn, beans, cucumbers, basil, and zucchini. This week I will be freezing the beans and corn,
Oh, this is interesting- last year my two beds of corn had nary a worm and this year, almost every ear has one. What gives? I raise them the same way, so it must be the environment- the crummy weather, perhaps?
…making the first batch of Roasted Tomato Sauce and maybe some Salsa with the tomatoes, whipping up some Frugal Pesto to freeze with the basil, and grating some of the bigger zucchini to use in bread and these wonderful Zucchini-Cinnamon Freezer Muffins. I’ve been pickling the cucumbers as they come on – I love being able to put up just two or three quarts at a time with the refrigerator recipe I use.
Oh! And of course we’ll be gorging on fresh vegetables all week long…
Thursday- Orange Beef, rice, stir-fry using ripe garden veggies
Friday- Spaghetti (with a canned tomato sauce from last year I’m using up), salad
Saturday- May be a BBQ or Calzones (that we didn’t have last week due to weekend ordeal…)
Sunday- BBQ at friends
