You know the old saying Time flies! You see I never really believed this before, however now I have proof.
I went on a very relaxing vacation, so when I left it was warm and sunny, when I returned the earth had tilted a bit more and fall is upon us all.
I woke up one morning at the same time I do each day, however this day was different, the sun was not up yet, the air was cold, and I had no idea what time it was!. I am sure this is normal after a wonderful vacation, however it was like “am in the wrong house, the wrong place, where am I.”
Even Annie and Penny have a bit of a fuzzy coat coming in. They also are hearty eaters and are obviously getting ready for winter, with a bit more extra extra around the waistline.
The garden that Annie and Penny planted this spring has now produces more giant zucchini than one person can eat.
So I am furiously cranking away at the spiralizer and adding bags and bags of sealameal spiralized zucchini to the freezer for lunches and dinners during the cold winter.
Buckets of jalapeno peppers and tomatoes were also harvested, they made many jars of either peach salsa, or black bean salsa. I personally cannot wait to eat this on nachos, or with corn tortillas, or as ad addition to that spiralized zucchini LOL.
The garden also gave an abundance of beets, and green beans and spaghetti squash, acorn squash and butternut squash.
The freezer is bursting at the seams, I cant wait until its all gross and cold outside and I can sit down and eat all the yummy items from my garden.
All I gotta do is close my eyes and be transported back to the sunshine and long warm days.
The green tomatoes were made into jars of salsa Verde, with the fresh jalapenos, serrano peppers, green peppers, and onions. The aroma of salsa Verde cooking should be a Scentsy pot scent!
I luv to take the chicken and pour a jar of the salsa Verde into the crock pot and smother chicken in let it cook all day on low and soak in all the flavors, when ready serve over rice, so yummy!
With all the jalapenos, I make my own hot sauce. I chop the jalapenos, serrano and onions and cook them until very soft. They go into the food processor and this makes a nice sauce with tons of texture, flavor and heat. I like to put this on my eggs for breakfast, toast, and in dinners too.
Annie and Penny agree that if a full freezer doesn’t make you happy what will!
Its true time flies, has wings, one day is not the same ass the next around here!
