I don't recall if I shared a few days ago, that I made spring rolls... I've never shopped an Asian market... so I made my own wrappers. Simply shredded carrot and cabbage, seasoned with sesame oil. Even J raved about them... that was a surprise!
Lets see, Mon. dr'd up cheap pizza, Tues. hot dogs and pork/beans. Tonight, I made chicken enchiladas, and warmed up l/o refried beans as a side.
Frankly, I awoke, made coffee, and headed out to the "patio." Cooler for a few days, so must take advantage! I began tidying up, cleaning, and relocating more of the planters. My 3 baby cuke's have been transplanted with a mesh of chicken wire to grow "up"
onto... I need to putter more, as I'm not real happy with the end result of this morning... but that will have to wait for another day! Like it or not, I am compelled to make a Costco trip, which is usually hatefully expensive, but then, I won't have to
pick up smaller amt's at the grocery every trip... at least for a while!
Of late, priorities have dictated enjoying outside stuff, from sitting with a cup of coffee, to planting seed, or transplanting seedlings... I also put in a few more cuke seeds today... might be nice to get a few each week, or month, rather 30lbs all at once!
It was my shrink who reminded me about the "Square Foot Gardening" technique, which I recall reading about some time (yrs...) ago. Thus, I've begun looking at my planters as being a "square foot" each! Too bad that I can't get the recommendations of the author
for "how many of which" per square foot... but I do believe that I'm intelligent enough to kinda sort it out! Speaking of which, I may have crowded my parsnip seeds, but then there's no guarantee that they'll all germinate, so fret I will not do, and since
smaller parsnips are uaually the preference, I guess I won't have a problem!
So, while spring fever is taking over the efforts of crazycook, we are still dining daily... just not to the extent of times past! Perhaps the heat will return in a few days with a vengence, at which time crazycook may once again go full tilt... heating the
crazykitchen up to unbearable temperatures, if only to create tasty meals...
Our friend Audie gave me a card recently, about the size of a large postcard, that she'd had printed up. It IS so touching... 3 photos of she and her Afghan, each with a saying... LIVE every moment, LAUGH everyday, LOVE beyond words.
With that in mind... be happy, be healthy, be CRAZY!
