As I type this, it is 5:10 p.m., we have no dinner and I can’t go to the grocery store (as planned) because we are in the midst of another thunderstorm. So, I decided to post pictures of food while I wait for the storm to pass. It was either that or start eating jam right out of the jar. After a brief deliberation, I decided to go for the blog.
I have been canning like a crazy person and I have banned commercial cereal from my house, resulting in the perfection of my homemade granola. Recipe to come. (That has nothing to do with these pictures. I am food focused at the moment.)
It’s the most wonderful time of the year – the farmer’s market is open! (I wish I could go there now and get something for dinner…) Hit your local market and stock up while produce is in season. I am going to try my hand at freezing eggplant this year so I can have my low-fat-not-eggplant-parmesan whenever I want, which is often. Visit the National Center for Home Food Preservation for SAFE ways to preserve the harvest. I am all about avoiding botulism toxin.
