Our afternoon outing was fun and successful!
We had a little time to kill so we ventured into the most amazing antique shop I’ve ever been in (mostly because they had tons and tons of stuff and it wasn’t all breakable!)
But I did recognize some family heirlooms I have already!
And I have these! Both from my grandmother
I really wanted to buy these, but I resisted:
And these! The KERF colors
When we got home around 4:30 I was very hungry for a snack.
I have bars that are YEARS old. I am such a bar hoarder. Do they even make Clif Nectar anymore!? The Dark Chocolate Walnut was (is) my favorite. Despite being a year past the "best by" date, it was still good.
Also had an Asian pear because I was thirsty!
Afternoon project: homemade greek yogurt. I often buy greek yogurt not just for the thickness, but because I think the FLAVOR is so much better than regular plain. But I had a coupon from the HSL for a tub of Stonyfield regular, so I jumped on it. We’re keeping half as it, and straining the other half to make some thickness goodness.
Big bowl + mesh colander + 2 paper towels
+ another layer and the container for weight = in the fridge overnight.
More thirst quenching – a mocktail around 6:30 of diet tonic
While we made dinner!
Featuring homemade buns by Matt modeled after Great Harvest Dakota (but they are NEVER as good as true GH buns! No offense Matt!)
And local grass-fed beef burgers from Davis Creek Farm!
And of course…lots and lots of collards greens
Our burgers featured yellow tomato, ketchup, mustard, greens and pickle. So delish!
My all time favorite way to prepare collards:
- Tear leaves into pieces
- Rinse and spin dry
- Heat big pot and put in a little olive oil
- Add collards plus 1/8 cup water
- Put lid on
- 2 minutes later, stir
- Add another 1/8 cup water if they are not wilting
- Put lid on
- Wait 3-4 minutes
- They’re done when they’re bright green and soft
- Drizzle on 1 tbsp maple syrup
- Season with salt and pepper and if you’re lucky, Garlic Gold Nuggets
Slightly sweet and savory!
After dinner = Mac. A. Roon.
I have determined that these Hail Merry Blondies tastes like sugar cookie dough!
I updated the Running page with INJURIES and SHOES
I have having trouble getting through American Wife. It’s just a bit slow, plot-wise. Must charge on!
