I am just hopping into this post with random abandon. It seems to be the theme of my life at the moment. With the flooring project that seems to keep growing I am doing my best to keep up with it all :)
This is the dill I picked the other day and am trying a freezer method of preserving it. I tend to have a little trouble with freezer burn. My in-laws suggested "vacuum sealing" my freezer bags by using a straw to suck out the air. This is my first attempt at this as well.
Remember the pizza party last week? We cut up a bunch of veggies and let guests make "decorate" their own pizzas. There were a couple of cups leftover veggies that didn't get used in the pizza...including all of the mushrooms (a complete mystery to me). In my effort to clean out the fridge, I came up with a couple of delicious meals to use up the leftovers.
I even had a little bit of the dough left. I ended up making the best pizza of the bunch (in my opinion). I rolled out the dough and brushed it with garlic infused olive oil that I had made for the salad-topped pizza. Then I covered it with fresh spinach and a bunch of the leftover peppers, onions and mushrooms. Sprinkled it with mozzarella cheese and baked it. I loved it! Seriously, I want to eat it every day. My husband, on the other hand, would never eat it due to "fungus infestation."
My pizza didn't use up all the chopped veggies, so I made an egg scramble for breakfast the next day. I sauteed the veggies and then tossed in a couple of eggs. It, too, was delicious. Now I am thinking I need to prep "leftover veggies" to keep on hand at all times.
I think our Millie pup has been a bit out of sorts with our demolition phase of our flooring project. However, I did catch a contented moment on the couch the other day. She sits like this all the time and is starting to make a permanent indention on the arm of the couch. I can't seem to make her stop because she looks so cute :)
We have some wild-ish daylilies next to our driveway. It is a small bed that my husband keeps trimmed and under control. However, my I think my neighbor is hinting that we should cut them down because they are wild. I don't think that is going to happen.
My hydrangea is in full bloom. For some reason it doesn't make the big puffy heads of flowers, but I still love it. My husband gave it to me for my first birthday that we were together. It has since been dubbed the "relationship bush" - kinda like the "love fern" in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.
So there is a random tour of my current life... Have a great weekend, everyone :)
