Wednesday seemed like my "Monday" cleaning day. I had a long list of to-do's, and we were out of chicken and goat feed to top it off. As well as vinegar, a much needed agent for cleaning. That meant two trips in two directions, or asking Hubby to help with the feed pick up.
Before I could put pork chops in the crock pot,
I had to wash it. In all our excitement of Daughter home, we did not do any dishes.
Here's what my day looked like
run to the store for vinegar
Anyone else getting new seed catalogs right now? One has arrived.
Even though I had (and still have) much to do, I did get one thing right yesterday - dinner.
Barbecued pork chops (with home canned tomato sauce) over organic brown rice, corn, and basic organic collard greens.
I wilt the greens with onion and basically with the water they are rinsed on. I do have bacon grease saved for this as well, but one daughter does not like bacon.
Once my greens are wilted, I beat one egg, 1 cup of milk and 2 Tbsp. of organic all-purpose flour, and top the greens. Also, as I coarsely cut the greens, I put them in my food processor to finely chop them, so we wouldn't have chewy mouthfuls of big pieces.
I stir until the mixture is completely cooked through. Once I have leftover ham from Christmas, I'll mix these up with hot red pepper flakes, ham and who knows what else. I'm really being more diligent at adding greens to each week of meals.
Another organic green I was able to locate this week was baby kale. We'll probably have baked cod in a bed of wilted kale and onions and another side. We did not get any greens from last year's garden (bugs chewed them down). If you have any really good natural pest remedies for next year's garden, I'd love to hear them. Greens are always bug laden and difficult for me to grow. Swiss chard does very well however.
I've really been enjoying cooking up spaghetti squash with breakfast too (hashbrowns).
Oldest daughter will soon be learning how to make her dog's homemade food. She is already house hunting and planning her college admission process. She's planning to keep her dog with her, so finding a rental that takes dogs is a difficult search.
