From my kitchen (and the market!)…
From time to time when things get overwhelming I think that nothing – nothing at all – gets accomplished in our home. And then I look through my photographs and realize that while some things are not getting done, other things are done daily or nearly. I don’t tend to photograph laundry for example though on occasion even that gets accomplished! I do tend to photograph food (my husband laughs everytime he sees me doing it – and he doesn’t even realize that he doesn’t see most of it!) Anyways — because of that, and because I find many things haven’t gotten done, I will share a post of a productive nature.
Food gets done. Good food at that.
:: tomatoes. at this very moment, these tomatoes are being reduced into sauce for the winter months. tomato sauce & pizza sauce. I had to buy these from the market — hoping that next year I’ll grow enough to use my own! (and that the birds will leave them alone!)
:: my mom and I took the kids apple picking in the pouring rain… and I turned the apples into delicous apple sauce. Now, I need to get a whole lot more apples so that we can actually have winter reserves, since this batch was eaten up quite quickly!
:: I forget the name of this cool looking squash I picked up at the market on the week-end. I’m thinking of turning it into a risotto… though haven’t quite decided yet… it might end up in a soup as many veggies are these days in my kitchen.
:: butternut squash from my uncle’s [family-sized/shared] garden & apples from the market soup. Popped into the oven at 9 am just before heading out to explore the forest with a few hours and came home to delicious soup the kids couldn’t get enough of. My immersion blender broke while finishing this soup – but has since been replaced. I HATE the extra dishes using a real blender adds to soup making!
