I feel like I got a lot accomplished this weekend.
Friday night, I made some salsa. My son, Dominic tasted it and loved it! And I knew right then and there I was in trouble! I had one jalapeno from the CSA and I threw it in and boy is it hot! So hot, that I can't eat it. I will be giving it away (here it comes, Uncle Loni and Uncle Joe) and saving one or two for my son. I couldn't feel my lip for about 20 minutes!
Saturday, I taught Zumba, then worked at the church, then came home to clean the house (Eva - you would have been mortified) and cook up some of the veggies from the CSA. I cleaned and pre cooked the purslane. There wasn't too much so I decided to add it to my large bag of veggies for the next stir fry sometime next week. I had two large eggplant, so I egged and floured and fried those up. Then I froze them so I'll be ready for eggplant parm. whenever I get the craving! My brother was foraging again and got me another chicken in the woods mushroom, so I fried that up with onion and froze it for another future steak! Saturday was a dinner at the church and then to a friend's house to catch up on some girl talk!!
Sunday, I was lucky enough to have Cassidy (one of the trips) and Nonni for parts of the day. I cooked a nice dinner....Chicken from my farm, roast potatoes, salad and corn on the cob from the CSA. What is more priceless than having a 3 year old and a 99 year old at the Sunday dinner table. Very funny table conversation!! After grocery shopping in the late afternoon, I decided to do something with some of the 7 quarts of raspberries and blackberries that I still have in the freezer! Last week, I made blackberry muffins which were just okay (actually not very good at all!). I found this recipe that looked incredibly easy. Raspberry cobbler! It took about five minutes to put together and about 35 minutes to cook and it was amazing! I added whipped cream and I honestly can't believe how delish it was!
Since I only used two cups of raspberries for this, please let me know if anyone needs some raspberries!!
