The winds were fierce yesterday. Chicago was a cold cold place to be on our last day of May.
So I decided to cook.
Have I shared my salsa recipe?
Here it is:
Fresh chopped tomatoes
big bunch of cilantro chopped
very small amount red onion chopped
juice of a lime
celery salt a touch
cumin, a good few teaspoons
Olive oil..just a dab
White vinegar about 3 times the amount of oil
a jalapeño pepper chopped small
little bit of chopped garlic
That's it. It is delicious.
Then I decided to make scones.
A recipe off the internet.
I made cranberry scones.
Mrs. McCawber's post on cherry focacia got me going!
Then I decided to make Irish Soda Bread to bring to my mom.
When the kitchen is a mess, I keep going!
I may not bake again for awhile.
While all this was going on, the winds were howling outside and we had the heat on in the house.
Fezzik and Pie played around a fort.
I put a sheet over a few wooden chairs and it kept them busy for an hour.
There was some mitten knitting yesterday.
I'll show you tomorrow.
June, not to pressure you, but we have waited all winter for you.
We want warmth and fireflies
we want the roses to bloom
we want porch time back
we want to put the jackets away....seriously.
