I'm participating in the Farmgirl Blog-A-Thon that Tina from Garden Goose is hosting. It's running for six weeks and this is week number three. Stop over at Tina's blog and find out all the details. I got behind and didn't get a post done for week two so I'm playing catch up!
I have to be honest and say that it seems like the only time I'm in the kitchen anymore is whip up a batch of soap! Since I only cook for Steph and I now I don't make such large meals. Usually it's some pasta and a salad -- something nutritious but quick. On the weekends I love to cook because I have more time.
Even though I'm a single gal now I still love my home very much and am very domestic. In fact, when Saturday and Sunday roll around I don't leave much. I just like to stay home, putter, and enjoy my surroundings.
I did try making refried beans and homemade tortilla chips yesterday. Justin (my grandson who loves to cook) jumped in and helped. Because of him, I'm learning to use more seasoning in what I make. The beans were "ok" but a little dry. The chips were great! Justin deep fried them then we sprinkled them with a little lime juice and sea salt. That was lunch for both of us.
I'll be canning this year for sure. I don't have space for a garden but will be getting local produce at the Farmer's Market. With grocery prices getting so high I'll be canning in preparation for next winter. And I want to support my local farms - that's the Farmgirl way!
