Me: "Honey have you seen what I've gotten done in the garden lately?" (which is a small start)
Hubby: "Yeah." (looking out at the garden)
Hubby: "Do we really have to take all that out?"
Me: "Well we can't very well till it in."
Hubby: (after a long pause and sigh) "I guess we can't" (lowers head)
Lots of hard work in the garden, and I imagine over the weekend. We'll see what gets done I guess. Potatoes have to cure for about 10 days before going in our potato bin. This puts me in a bind for space.
No less, I dug the remaining Kennebec and more sweet potatoes on Friday, and brought in another 30#. My kitchen will be a mess for another 10 days plus. I guess I can live with that. I just hope the food sharks (dogs) don't run off with any during the process.
The one thing I did not thing about - where am I storing the sweet potatoes? Yikes! I better whip up a plan while they cure.
More to dig yet this weekend. Some crazy lady planted a boat load of them this year. Only about 3/4 of the garden yet to weed and yank. "Only" makes it sound much easier.
A bit of broccoli and collards made their way to the overstuffed freezer. I am keeping up with keeping up so far.
In the process of cleaning out old magazines (I'm sure I'll find another stash somewhere), I found a recipe that I totally forgot about. It uses carrots, farm fresh eggs, tarragon from the herb garden, homemade plain yogurt, and has an all Einkorn flour crust.
Carrot and Tarragon Tart with Sherry. The recipe is from Eating Well. They have it online, and I just used my garden goodies and switched the flour choice. I do not have a "tart" baking dish, so I used my quiche dish. Oh, and I did not use "reduced fat" cheese. I used organic cheddar shreds.
The taste test was completed. Delicious! I also tested to see how this reheated, using the oven.
I have been looking for recipes to take veggie dishes up a notch at gatherings. We are plum tired of green bean casserole.
It's a "keeper" recipe.
I told "Grad" daughter that I needed a photo of King and Zuri to update my blog header. She responded with a long, hysterical laugh. Hyper King and lazy Zuri. "I may have to photo shop them together," she says laughing more.
