|Today's Garden Harvest: Lettuce and Snow Pea Pods!|
I picked some lettuce and the first of the snow pea pods from the garden, today! Some of the lettuces are starting to bolt! I picked three more snow pea pods after I took this photo - I'll be having them in a stir-fry, tomorrow.
Last night, after I posted, I baked the second tray of chicken thighs:

There were 12 thighs in this package. I seasoned them with some salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, ground ginger, and a little soy sauce. After they cooled, I packaged them, three thighs per package, and froze them for future meals.
Then, while the oven was on to bake the chicken, I mixed up some pastry dough and made some patties with the leftover ground beef and dhal curry I mixed together. There was just enough of the mixture for 10 patties. I added some freshly grated cheese to the leftover pastry, along with a little garlic salt and paprika, and baked some cheese crackers for a snack.

I had some of the patties for my dinner, last night, and for brunch, today.
It was a cool and cloudy day, today, but, the rain ceased and M was able to check on the garage roof and do a few more repairs. He wasn't very pleased with his efforts, but, he's a perfectionist; I told him that as long as the repairs hold out until I can get a roofer to check on things, it's good enough for me. M also checked on the peach tree and noticed that some of the baby peaches that are forming are showing signs of frost damage. We will have to thin out quite a few fruits, in another week or so.
I called and wished one of my cousins for her birthday, sewed a few more patches on my quilt in the afternoon, watched a walking tour of the Tower of London, and watched news. Later, I cleaned the litter box. Dinner was more of the soup and cheese crackers followed by grapes. Grapes are selling for $2.99/lb. this week, so I am glad I bought some when they were on sale, last week.
Today, I am grateful for:
- M's help with the garden and roof repairs
- A well-watered garden
- Today's garden harvest
- Working appliances
- A relaxed day
Today's joyful activity was picking the first pea pods from the garden.
Plans for tomorrow include some kitchen cleaning and more quilt repairs.
