in the kitchen

Last week of September Menu copy

Pesto.  Yes, regular basil pesto.  We love pesto.

With these beautiful veggies from the garden, it took me to make salsa.

I got the basic idea for the salsa, from Deb from Smitten Kitchen, but added the veggies we had available and ready to pick from the garden.  This time, I blended it, and I think the kids liked it more this way, since they are not big fans of tomatoes.

It turned out really good I think.  I wonder how I can make it so I can can it.

The cooler weather has called me to make some chai.  I’ve been making a concentrate so I can have it in the fridge ready to make, when I don’t have time to prepare it from scratch.  I use for the most part, Heather’s recipe. It is so good.

I made this sandwich bread from Deb at Smitten Kitchen.  It is so good!  Another bread recipe in rotation.  Good!

I think I’ll be making more loaves.  And I love it that it makes two. It is perfect.  I am so grateful for the amazing folks that share their cooking skills with wonderfully delicious recipes free for all of us to use and cook and share with our families and friends.  It makes me happy.  There are great proper in this world.  Yes indeed.

So good!  Thank you dear friends for sharing.
