I took advantage of being indoors, and started a crock pot of black beans with onion and garlic. We use this for snacking, adding to a breakfast burrito, etc. Once they are cooked, I mash them. I have cut this recipe in half now.
...I canned this season's first batch of sweet pickle relish. In half-pints, due to the shrinking family. A happy moment for us. The girls don't like the chopping part, but they sure do eat it a lot (homemade tartar sauce, slaw, pasta dishes, tuna salad, homemade thousand island dressing etc.) We use it a lot and had very small cucumber harvest last year. I had Graduate Daughter fill and carry the canner pot for me.
Oh, my kitchen tables are a mess. Zucchini, yellow squash, a few lingering smaller cucumbers, walnuts (yes they are not all cracked yet)....it's "messy house" time of year if you garden/can/freeze etc. The crocky's never seem to be back where they belong. I use them often this time of year.
And for those burritos, I mixed up some einkorn dough...
...which you have to have a lot of patience with to roll out and get into your pan...
... one dozen einkorn flour tortillas made. Mixing and rolling the balls is the easy part. Rolling it between parchment paper, and getting it off without tearing it is the hard part. Still. We prefer the better grain for these.
I should have taken a picture of Hubby's burrito. I picked the only 4 ripe pear heirloom tomatoes, and he topped his burrito with black beans, scrambled eggs, jalapeno, and those yummy tomatoes.
When Hubby and I deep cleaned the bedroom, wiping down all the woodwork, I put everything from the dresser into a basket. We've enjoying seeing it so clean (two lamps and one long doily), so I'll be emptying that basket, but nothing will go back on the dresser. Photos will be placed on shelves elsewhere, and our first "piece of the rock" we brought home from the island will go into the flower bed. It's freeing to see it so clean, and a big job completed. I still need to clean ceiling fans and light fixtures, but that's for another day.
I called my doctor. The office is closed Thursday and Friday. I didn't want to mess with going to Urgent care. So. We wait.
