Quiet evening, sitting here waiting for Tom to return. Two of the boys are at the movies with friends, one is here with his friend. Fire is going, it is COLD outside like 13 and it’s not even 7 p.m. Weather calls for it to be record cold tonight for this time of the year. BRRRRR……
Tomorrow, I have lots of cooking to do. We are going to my friend Cassie’s for her “doomer” dinner. I am making mashed potatoes and my local dish is swiss chard from the garden made either in a quiche or tart with leeks. Don’t know yet. The potatoes might be purple since I have the most of those….. now there’s something different, purple mashed potatoes. I did a predominantly purple meal last year with purple cauliflower, purple beans and purple mashed potatoes. The boys loved it!
Well, we came back from NJ to find that the plastic had blown off the “hothouse” on my garden since it was WINDY. The goats’ kennel had blown clean over the electric fence into the yard and garbage cans were everywhere. We reset the plastic but decided to pick almost all of the swiss chard and salad that was still out there since I had no way of knowing if the plastic would hold. So now I have lots and lots of swiss chard. Since I am the only one in the family that actually eats it, this will most likely be the main ingredient of my contribution to the doomer dinner that my friend is hosting on Saturday. I believe that the sauerkraut is fermented enough also, so I have to finish washing swiss chard and can the sauerkraut, those are today’s projects in addition to the usual.
