— things I did over the weekend:
— made 8 containers of refrigerator pickles
— made 2 jars of refrigerator kimchi
— cut up 4 bundles of green onions, put them into containers and
— cut up a bundle of fresh dill and laid it out to dry
— peeled 4 heads of garlic and put into a container in the fridge
— while I was making the pickles and kimchi, I wished I had sharper knives and a food processor. Hopefully, it will be soon. I also wished for a canning kit. I want to store the stuff for later, but can’t right now.
— learned how to can fish while watching New Scandinavian Cooking. My mom isn’t sure about it, but I would like to try to make it. But then, I did learn to make schnapps from that show and she didn’t complain.
— I have to cut back both of the rhubarb plants. Last week, there was very bad storm. While some areas flooded, the hail beat the shit out of the plants. I’m not sure if it will grow back before fall, so there may not be any are strawberry rhubarb pie.
— I also need to weed the gardens. We have nasty prickly weeds and they need to go. I don’t have a pair of gardening gloves and my mom’s pair are small and the leather is cracking.
— yes, I am watching The Avengers again. I need the funny and the action. And a bit of fangirling. I’m sore in weird places again, and this helps…
