This is my Tuesday Twister post, where I share what’s been happening in my GNOWFGLINS kitchen over the last week. To see what others are making or to participate in the Tuesday Twister blog carnival, visit this week’s Tuesday Twister post.
We’ve had a busy and hot week! The biggest news of our week is that we got a puppy, from Olympic Dogs. She’s a doll. Her name is Areli, unless we change it (which we might). More on her for Simple Lives Thursday — how we’re feeding her and how we’re training her.
We took chocolate sourdough cake to our friend Jami‘s house for a barbeque last week. She treated us to grass-fed steaks and hamburgers, along with watermelon (C. was sooo happy). We brought probiotic potato salad, sourdough spelt hamburger buns, and of course — that cake.
The Farmers’ Market boasted 4 farmers last week! I was a very happy shopper and brought home lots of pickling cukes and green beans. I finally got to try some lacto-ferments that have been on my mind, as well as remake some staples. From left to right: Sarah’s dilly beans, Kristen’s pickle relish, Peggy’s garlic-dill pickles, my mayonnaise, and Erin’s ketchup.
The relish is wonderful, the pickles are amazing. I can tell the dilly beans are going to be amazing from my taste-tests, but they’re still not done.
And eggs…. We usually pick up quite a supply when in town from our egg farmers. But last week, a neighbor gave us 5 dozen, too. We were swimming in eggs. It was good timing, though, because we’ve been busy with puppy, milking goats, fencing, and cheese-making — plus its been really, really hot here. Eggs are easy and don’t require much heat. We’ve had many delicious egg meals, and I’ve tried to vary how they’re prepared so we don’t get bored. I feel an egg post coming on…. In the meantime, here is just one way we ate eggs — as my mom-in-love calls them — Angel Eggs.
So that’s it for me! What’s been twisting in your kitchen over the last week? Head over to today’s Tuesday Twister post to link your post up or visit the other Tuesday Twister posts.
