*****EDITED TO ADD*****The purple thingies on the left are indeed peppers. When you cut them open they are bright lime green and they are very tasty indeed. The little red thing is a tomato (duh), and the yellow thingies are bannana peppers that I think are supposed to be mild-ish.
OK, kids. Channel your inner Martha for me and tell me what to do with the last harvest from the Spinster Stitcher Sister Garden. Should I chop it all up and make some kind of salsa? Pickle it all? Puree and freeze? What?! I was so proud of myself for actually going out there into the hinterlands and getting this stuff off of the vines that I don't want it to go to waste. Ideas, please.
I'm off to an appointment while Stewey sleeps in the sun. He and I didn't sleep very well last night, but at about 4am he put his little paw on my arm and said "Mo-ther. Turn off the damn lights already and go to bed or you'll have bags under your eyes tomorrow and you'll be crankier than usual." And then he gave me a few Valium and a martini and all was well.
(Just kidding about that last part. I don't drink and/or do Valium. I figure I have about three wits left and I'd like to keep them about me as long as I can.)
(Besides....I have a theory that we are all allotted a certain number of "stupid points" in our lifetime, and I believe that used all of mine up during that particularly frenzied summer back in the 80's.)
I'm still plugging away on Quaker Diamonds and am determined to finish it this week. I have one last big motif to complete and then it's all down hill from there. I wonder if I would be able to get it done before the expiration date of the 60% off sale? Hmmm. Motivation, thy name is SAVINGS!
Are you all having a fun and fabulous Tuesday?
