It’s a fact that when the weather is this hot (and dry), then the day after hiking is all about the garden. Well, today it was also about 4 loads of laundry. And now it’s not just about weeding and (mostly) watering – -it’s also about harvesting.
And here’s my dilemma: harvesting and doing something with the harvest almsot always involves turning on the stove or oven and it’s too damn hot to do that.
I am just now recovering from blanching peas.
Simon is thinking about making carrot soup. The last thing in the world I want to do is make soup. Or a stew or a casserole.
My current theory is freeze everything as is and cook it in the winter when I’ll welcome the heat.
We’ll see how that theory holds up.
But for now, we have frozen peas and berries and tons of lettuce for making a salad for dinner. Yup – that’s my kind of dinner these days: salad.
Am walking with Andrea tomorrow. Will wrestle her to the ground to extract her guacamole recipe. I could live on her guacamole. Seriously! No hyperbole! If she packaged it up and sold it, she’d be a millionaire.
Am anticipating it already.
