Not too, too bad for one tomato plant on a deck, in my humble opinion. There are at least another dozen or so in varying shades of green that I look forward to nibbling on if they survive the wind storms – we are currently having gusts approaching 50 MPH. Oh well, at least it’s sunny and mild 😉
It has been a quiet couple of days here at buzzyfoods – we were visiting family in Indiana for part of the long weekend and came home to leftovers on Sunday – pulled pork I had stashed in the freezer was again used for tasty, tasty sammiches. Monday was for errands and chores and general catching up. I restocked our cookie tin with four dozen sugar cookies made in madeleine pans – really it’s easier than cutting out all those little shaped cookies, and Rich prefers the thicker, slightly cake-y texture – even more so than when I’ve made actual madeleines! Dusting them with confectioner’s sugar through a sifter adds a nice touch.
Dinner was more or less low-key. Rich had a taste for pot roast, so we had my ‘barbecued’ version with parsleyed potatoes and green beans with balsamic vinegar, some home made horseradish sauce, and a lovely little California Cabernet my sister gave us – thanks Dale!
