Well, now! That sounds ominous. What? The last two days of the world as we know it? The last two days before I take to my bed and never do another worthwhile thing again? (I had a relative who did exactly that.)
Nope. The last two days were partially filled with a bit of this and that in the way of harvesting and putting up food.
Yesterday we woke to a temp of 45 degrees outside, and 60 degrees inside. I do believe we may have turned the corner toward real fall weather. (Yippee!) And, yes, the house was a little chilly. Before sitting down to breakfast, I pulled on a sweatshirt over my regular outfit and then put on a zip up the front sweatshirt over that.
Sounded like a good day to bake something so I put a cherry coffee cake in the oven. Even though Papa Pea had hinted for "something blueberry" (the baker lady was hungering for "something cherry"), he seems happy enough with this coffee cake to eat his share.
I've been thinking of making the first batch of Stuffed Green Peppers so went out into the garden to see if there were enough good-sized peppers to pick. No problem there.
I also had several slicing cucumbers in the spare refridge that I wanted to use for a couple/few more quarts of kimchi. So I gathered the other ingredients together for that. All from the garden . . . except the sweet red peppers. We don't have quite a long enough season to have the peppers turn color. Most years. I think our summer of unusually high temperatures would have done that this year if it hadn't been for our extremely long, cold spring.
Don't the layered veggies in the jar look purdy? Not for long because I dump them into a bowl and mix them up before putting back in the jar for the fermentation period.
They're still colorful when mixed though.
Today I made the batch of stuffed peppers and got them in the freezer to quick-freeze before wrapping them for storage. If I counted all of them correctly, the total is enough for eighteen meals. One more batch like this one and we'll be set for this winter. We don't consume all of them ourselves. They make an easy company meal and nobody at our table has refused to eat them. Yet.
Tomorrow? Ugh. I've got to put on my big girl panties and attack those dandelions in the strawberry patch. Double ugh. (Blankety-blank weeds!)
a few good things
