Wandering Jew cuttings, I should be able to put it in water and grow it solely that way. Live Forever?
---My purple hyacinth are blooming and the pink are up. These are part of a living boquet that Husband gave me last Easter.
---The forsythia have been blooming for about a week now. In another week or so blooming will be done and we will prune 1/3 of all the branches.
Mommy: Should we put the footprints on the toilet?
Kindergartner:That would be kind of creepy.
Mommy: We don't do creepy?
Kindergartner: Oh. Yeah, we do.
4. Ginger Chicken Fried Rice. Easy and on next month's menus.
Hearty Lentils and Beans was a dinner and leftovers earlier this month.
The jalapeños on top were for me only. A bit of homemade Sriracha Salt and a bit of cumin. I used milk and butter to substitute for heavy cream. Husband liked this.
Baked Cucumber Chips (pictured after a little over an hour in the oven). These were interesting and will be another lunch sack item. Definitely use parchment paper...I don't have parchment paper and achieved different degrees of doneness when these were pulled out. Kindergartner loves garlic salt and that is what I sprinkled on.
I found a way for the kids to be fond of cucumbers. :-) :-) :-)
Pickle juice and vodka. This was an interesting taste, made use of the pickle juice and sort of grew on me. The drink smells good.
---Dry vermouth can be added with the vodka. This can also be made with gin.
---Some people garnish. Some people experiment with the pickles used.
-----Horseradish-Black Pepper Vodka
-----Tex Mex Pepper Vodka Infusion. This takes 2-4 days.
-----Chicken Thighs in Ghost Pepper Vodka and Coconut Milk
-----Cheese Ravioli with Ghost Pepper Vodka Sauce. Apparently, not spicy like it sounds.
-----Pepper-Vodka-Soaked Cherry Tomatoes with Seasoned Sea Salt. I am not entirely picturing how this would taste.
Tip: Put the beef in the freezer until just about frozen...then take out to cut. This will make the beef more manageable.
