We went to visit the cemetery Saturday.
Purple green beans (not sure of type), garlic bloom, basil in bloom, little bartlett pear, yellow straight neck squash, and the biddies. After I took the picture yesterday, last night a fox got three of them. Monday did NOT get off to a very good start, but it did improve, thank the Lord.
We picked about a bushel of the purple green beans at my mothers and step fathers (the green beans are waiting patiently on me to finish them...LOL ). I have already done about half of them, and had to rest a bit. They are blanching...
Anyway, I helped my mother cook dinner (lunch to us Southern folks), and we ate there.
- venison sausage
- oven fried mixed potatoes (recipe following)
- steamed cauliflour
- english peas and potatoes with white sauce
- sweet iced tea
She sent us home with a flounder, fresh collards, frozen corn on the cob, new potatoes, a mess of fresh bream my step-father caught this morning (my husband cleaned them for him, and he gave them to us---he doesn't eat fish but he LOVES fishing....LOL)Anyway, the potatoes were delicious:
Cut up 2 sweet potatoes, 4 red and/or russet potatoes, and 2 onions, all diced large. Spray cookie sheet with olive oil, place everything on the pan, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and drizzle (or spray) olive oil over all. Bake @ 350 degrees until tender, uncovered and golden brown., approximately an hour.
My sister also brought me a half dozen big turnip roots, and 2 grocery bags full of yellow squash and zucchini. I have my work cut out for me....I'll be up late for sure!
Gotta run and check on my beans...Okay, I'm back!
Here are the beans blanching (5 min.):
I'll cool them off in ice water, then bag them up and put them in the freezer.
I hear the timer....Later!
