No Recipe: I Ate (Some of) This

26 Oct

This is the sour cherry pie I make my best friend for her birthday every year:

This pesto is made from basil, spinach, arugula, and mint. It is waiting to be frozen after this year’s garden harvest pesto-fest:

This butter is perfectly softened:

This chicken sausage looks like a nightmare, but it was delightful, made from an utterly delicious concoction of spearmint, cherries, and white wine:

This tortilla de patatas, though delicious, did not unmold as it should have:

This fantastic, beautiful tomato is called a green zebra:

This “stew” is made of water, dirt, leaves, sticks, flower petals, and hot chiles (no one ate this):

These are garden fresh figs straight from our neighbors’ tree. Have I mentioned how much I love our neighbors?

    I recently finished putting up some pesto too…got to the last of my basil before the snow hit a couple of days ago (half a foot and counting!).

      Having pesto at the ready in the freezer is such a lifesaver. It saves us from eating takeout more often than I am willing to admit.

    My kids used to make the same “stew” from twigs, grass, petals, and imagination!
