Yeah, that's how I like to roll too -
The girls, however, found a large
nasty ass puddle of water full of tadpoles.
Anyway....on to more pleasant topics....FOOD! A couple of weeks ago I made pickled peppers. It was my first attempt, and today I got to try them! (you were supposed to wait 2 weeks before opening them). If you have an abundance I banana peppers, I highly recommend you make these. It is simple and they are so GOOD. My only complaint is that they are very salty. I'm not sure if that will get better or worse as they "age". But let me tell you - on a sandwich, they are THE BOMB! I fixed a BLT, with Roasted Red Pepper Hummus and my pickled peppers...Best. Sandwich. Ever. I should open a deli. Not really, but it was that good. I think I'll have another one today. Mo'bacon.....
I also have a few garden pics...I haven't posted any in a while. My garden is actually one of the reasons I started a blog. I was so excited watching it grow, and all my Facebook friends were ready to "de-friend" me. They just didn't understand my fascination with documenting the daily advances in my first garden! How can you not enjoy watching grass grow?! I've got more grass (not, like, grass as in grass, but just plain ol' aggravating don't-want-in-my-garden grass) than I know how to deal with. It is out of control. I finally got the weed eater and went nuts ..... well, the truth is, I got my husband to show me how to use the weed eater, and apparently was doing such a piss poor job of it, that he took over and plowed through some of the steroid induced grass we have. Works for me. Anyway, we are getting lots of peppers still - green bell peppers, banana peppers, and jalapenos. Grape tomatoes, which are so cute, but I'm not sure what to do with them all...roast them maybe? And watermelons!!
Cute harvest basket, b-day gift from my lil sis
some of my "harvest"!
2nd watermelon, and we have more growing!
Kids still get excited over picking stuff! Especially watermelon - they will demolish an entire watermelon in one sitting if I let them! My sister also gave me some cool things to plant for fall - pumpkins, gourds....the kids will LOVE that! I can't believe it's already time to think about Fall, Back-to-School, and before you know it HOLIDAYS!! Time goes by entirely too fast. I can't keep up.
