Yesterday, we went to a local farm with a friend to go berry picking. While we were there, we also purchased some other local, sustainably-grown produce- including 25 lbs of cucumbers! I’ve been making pickles and jam all weekend! I also finally found some rhubarb and fennel.
Since I’m making more room in the freezer (after reorganizing it last week), most of our meals will be leftovers out of the freezer. Calvin’s birthday is on Thursday, so I’ll try to do something special; probably on Friday, though, since he has class on Thursday night. I asked him what kind of cake he wanted for his birthday, and he said “Surprise me.” I need cake suggestions! Feel free to leave me a recipe or a link to your favorite ones in the comments. Thanks!
Cucumbers are taking over every inch of our stovetop and kitchen right now, so for dinner tonight, we just roasted red potatoes (with olive oil and fresh parsley) and some fish (with butter, lemon, garlic, and dill) in the oven, along with a fresh green salad. Yum! We also made butter tonight for the week. We just finished the iced tea we’ve been sipping on all week: Kimi’s delicious Thai Iced Tea.
