  1. So, 14 lbs of tomatoes made 4 1-quart bags. Not real impressed 😑. Oh well, be buying another box.
  2. Our yearly marinara sauce making has started. We get these San Marzanos from a tomato farm nearby. They always have a distressed rack that is $1/lb. We picked up 14lbs this go round. Since they just started coming in, we'll probably go back for one more box.

    I split the baby gems in half and brushed with olive oil. I placed them on a hot grill till they had marks on both sides. I made my usual Caesar dressing. I had read This article about salad breadcrumbs instead of hard croutons and wanted to try it. So much flavor in them compared to croutons, and was nicer to eat. I'm not a fan of baby gems for regular salad, but I thought that since they are such sturdy little buggers, they would grill well. And, they are a better size than a big romaine head.

    Dinner 2020

    For our FaceTime happy hour with by step sister and her husband, I made a Caprese salad, crab stuffed zucchini flowers and arancini. Served with a Pinot grigio.
  6. We were out of ice cream, but had whipped cream and strawberries. My mother complained the whole time that it was Soo dark chocolate, (ate it anyway 😑) with a dome of whipped cream that was as big as her head to help cut it.
  7. Wanted something chocolatey, so I made a small chocolate Bundt with glaze. I usually half the recipe, and it fits perfectly in this little pan I got years ago. Since there is only two of us, a regular Bundt is way too much cake.

    Thanks, they came out really good. A little tedious, but I knew what I was getting into 😊. That's not the one. Here's a link for the one I used. Stuffed Arancini

    Decided to try making potstickers. Came out really good. Pork, Napa cabbage, scallions, garlic, Ginger. Cleaned out there produce drawer for a veggie stir fry (pretty sad ), and brown rice.

    You know, they aren't that hard to make. It just takes patience stirring risotto, which doesn't take that long. I used a recipe from Epicurious, and there is a video of how to make them as well. Give it a shot 😊. I breaded all of them, cooked what we needed, then put the rest in the freezer.

    Breakfast 2020!

    I would do the grits, tomato and egg, but I guess I'm not a proper Southerner. I can't do collards or turnip greens. The smell would run me from the house 🤷‍♀️😆
  12. Make the waffles, they are great! It made eight Belgian waffles. I froze the leftover ones, and they reheat great.

    Breakfast 2020!

    Had a small get together with my mom's cousin. Decided to try a recipe I had saved in my Epicurious recipe box. French toast BLT. Challah, bacon, tomato, avocado, gruyere, arugula and a roasted garlic vinaigrette. Nice change from sweet French toast. Also, roasted Yukon gold potatoes and Mumm's Rose.

    Made arancini tonight. I tried a recipe from Epicurious. Really good, I like the lemon in them. I stuffed with a cube off fontina. Served with simple marinara, and a salad of lettuce and tomatoes from our garden. And a Chardonnay 😁.

    I am removing. Just do, doesn't appeal to leave it for some reason. 🤷‍♀️ I might try it next time. Right now I have about 5 fresh blossoms in the fridge, the only zucchini growing right now are about 2" long. I'll check tomorrow and whatever flowers I get, I'm going to stuff them then.
