One Flourishing, Frugal and Fun Family!

One mother making ends meet and surviving today's recession by writing. One family learning to live off the land, cut back on expenses, and to live a simpler and a more self-sufficient lifestyle.

Garden Cooking

I canned 8 pints of Easy Dill Pickles today.  I also had 3 medium sized zucchini and a bunch more cucumbers.  

We made a recipe from Mother Earth News Web site, and it was delicious.

Quinoa - Zucchini Cakes with Summer Herbs

And with a few of my larger cucumbers, I made a cold salad:

Greek Pasta Salad

The salad was okay, but lacked something.  I think I may use fresh minced garlic vs. garlic salt.  There just seemed to be something missing in the taste, but otherwise good.
