My desire to arise early and go to Lowe’s today has been bested by a desire to be lazy and remain under the covers. To let some of the night’s cooler air into the house I slept with the window and deck door open, so naturally I awoke to a roach in the house. Ugh.
My laziness was also encouraged by a less than stellar day at the ITP Estate and WLF. I am a bit disheartened by the trashing of my garlic and the fact that some of my other crops are remaining dwarf size and not producing vegetables. It seems like for every positive I have is bested by at least one bad thing these days. Iâ€™m hoping that itâ€™s just a temporary phase…
I forgot to mention yesterday that my June goal is to try to incorporate something from WLF into a least one meal every day. I’ll cut myself some slack by omitting days away from home, and allowing leftovers to count.
I started the month making a dinner one would only make for themselves. I combined an onion, red bell pepper, jalapeÃ±o pepper, zucchini (WLF), handful of marble-sized potatoes (WLF), vegetarian meatballs, a can of Rotel, and a bag of croutons and baked the whole thing for about an hour. Surprisingly the result was pretty tasty.
Last night I watched the first episode of an eight-episode documentary called “1971” on AppleTV+. From the name you might rightly guess that it’s about the year 1971 and how music and the United States changed drastically during that year. For the vintage footage alone it was worthy of watching and I will continue to watch the next seven episodes.
I am scheduled to watch Top Chef at Betsy’s tonight and it’s my turn to provide food. I’m still on the fence as to what I will make/bring, and of course I want to use something from WLF.
Hope your week has started well.
