I’ve been home over a week and we’ve been busy catching up on things but today I have time to get some extras done.
I took one batch of yogurt out of the strainer, gave the whey to the chickens and started another batch of yogurt.
We worked in the garden for a while. One row of onions was completely taken over by grass burrs and even though the onions weren’t ready to come out of the ground, the only way to get the grass burrs out was to pull up everything so Vince pulled up these onions.
I like to ferment our morning oatmeal at least 24 hours so I got the oatmeal started for Tuesday morning. I started Monday morning’s oatmeal last night.
We eat a a good many roasted peanuts for snacks, just a few at a time, and we like the ones we roast at home better than the ones already roasted so I roasted (or parched) two bags of peanuts.
Before I left almost a month ago, I put some fruit to soak in balsamic vinegar so I strained that, added a bit of honey and we’ll have that for our salads. The two small jars in front are raspberry and the larger jars in back are blueberry.
Last thing I did was roast garlic. We’re having steak tonight and we love to spread roasted garlic on it. I’ll mash this all up and mix it with a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper and it will be great over steak.
I believe I’ve earned myself a little knitting time!
