A Dill Plant

It’s So Yummy!!!

Huzzah! The fruits of labor have finally been brought down to me from the Heavens!

A couple of weeks ago, I started growing a dill plant straight from the seed! I almost never start from a seed, and when I do, it usually doesn’t work. I’m so excited! I have a bunch of other seeds for different plants that I’m going to start to grow this afternoon. They’re easy things like other spices, microgreens, strawberries, and of course flooooooooowers! Starting a garden really makes it feel like Spring!


I’m going to be taking a few holiday breaks from blogging. Like, I just got back from my big Thanksgiving Break and soon I’ll be going on a Christmas Break. Just to let yous know.

While we’re on the subject, Happy (late) Thanksgiving! My holiday was nothing spactacular, but it was still fun! Unlike the rest of the country who had a week off of school, I had Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday off along with the weekend. Boy, have I been looking forward to that! It was lovely not having to get up and just being able to enjoy this nice weather and go to a park and not worry about if I’m going to get my homework done!

During the day, all everybody was doing was cooking and preparing for the feast that awaited us. Also, me and my brother decorated with hand and feet turkeys. I’m sure everyone’s seen a hand turkey, but feet ones are pretty weird looking.

For Thanksgiving dinner, we had three times as much stuffing as we thought would come out, potatoes my brother made all by himself, canned cranberry sauce, my mother’s coleslaw with an entire jar of mayonnaise (60 servings? More like 10!), my secret recipe candied sweet potatoes with a super-sweet sauce, and a big, fat scrumptious turkey that had spent the night brining so it would be nice and juicy and plump the next day.

Mmmmmmmmm!


This one of the easiest pretzel recipes I’ve seen in a long time. Everyone should have a homemade pretzel at some point in their life. They’re just so classic! My idea would be to make a big, gigantic bunch of these and take them to a picnic at a park or something of the sort.

Yesterday I shared with you the buffalo wings that we had for our appetizer supper. They were awesome, but we also had a soft pretzel with cheese sauce on the side. Equally delicious.

I have been planning to try these for a while. A tattered piece of paper with this recipe on it sat in my kitchen for months. It happens, I tear items out of magazines and throw them into a holding pattern for months at a time, waiting until the “perfect” moment, or most likely when it happens to fall in front of my eyes again during a cleaning spell.

Months ago, I tore this from a penzey’s magazine, after showing it to my husband who voiced his interest. To my surprise, when I returned from yoga class the other night, he had found this recipe and made the dough. Yep, he’s a keeper.

Then we whipped up a simple…

Pepinos on a plate.

Whilst I was reading Esparanza Rising by Paul Munoz Ryan, earlier this morning, there was a part in the story where Esparanza and her family are on a train and they stop for some food. They all get Pepinos. What is a pepino? You may wonder. It’s delicious, that’s what it is.

Ingriedients:

1 Cucumber

Salt

Ground chiles or pepper

Directions:

Slice up cucumber into medium to large slices. Sprinkle salt and ground chiles or pepper onto the slices. Buen Provecho!


For dessert a few nights back, my family and I made these Rice Krispy Treats. Except instead of Rice Krispy’s we used Cheerios that had been laying around the kitchen forever because nobody likes plain Cheerios by themselves.

Cheerio Krispy Treats in the glass pan.

I’m not sure how good it looked, but it was pretty tasty.

Here you can see all of the marshmellowy glaze on the Cheerios. It looks pretty good now, doesn’t it?

The only problem with this was that while everyone was eating, we tasted something weird. Soon, we had come to the concensus that this recipe would have tasted alot better, if the Cheerios hadn’t been stale. Eww.

In case you want to know how to make this dessert, it’s exactly the same as Rice Krispy Treats except when it says put Rice Krispies in, just put in Cheerios. Finally, keep in mind that Cheerios have waaay more vitamins than Rice Krispy Treats, too, for your children and such.


Last night for dinner I helped my dad make these barbeque chicken kabobs. We also had lentils over rice and cornbread with it, but I was too busy eating it to get a picture of it, :).

Chicken Kabobs are supposed to be here...

Nice and Tender!


Tonight we had dinner. More specifically, we had tortillas.

First, put corn tortillas on the griddle

Second, flip corn tortillas

3) Cook corn tortillas to your liking and remove from the griddle

4) Place flour tortillas on the griddle

5) Flip flour tortillas

6) Cook and remove

7) Start cooking your choice of meat or tofu. I chose filet mignon.

8) Cook meat until it’s satisfactory

9) Add seasonings and other toppings like chives, salsa, red onions, etc.

10) Serve and enjoy!
