Soon we will have little romaines!
We are still waiting on the other plants
Karen visited her friend Mary over the weekend, who has a huge farm and garden. She came home with a huge adult head of lettuce for us!
I turned it into a big lunch salad to be consumed among green relatives
Featuring local eggs
Plus Dakota and cheddar cheese cubes. I cooked the eggs by flipping them halfway and got that oh-so-attractive brown coloring on them. A little smoked paprika livened them back up.
I dressed the lettuce only in honey and a drizzle of olive oil plus some pink sea salt. Lettuce is too sweet to cover with vinegar!
Does anyone have any idea what this is? Some type of fungus I think? Yesterday it was BRIGHT YELLOW – like someone spilled a pile of lego pieces – and today it’s brown and mushroom-y!?
After lunch I feasted on one of Lil’s Lite Bytes from the City Market! Lemon Poppyseed is my fav!
The article underneath is about the history of Mason jars that my grandmother sent to me. Mason jars were patented in 1858 by John Landis Mason and they changed the landscape of food preservation. The signature two-part lids and see-through container made canning everything from apricots to green beans much easier for households. Apparently original Mason jars are prized collectables – cobalt blue ones are worth $10,000-15,000!!
Too bad the article didn’t say teal jars are valuable!
Makes me wonder if my cobalt Noxzema jar collection is worth anything…
