It's been a long time...

Since my last post. We had a round of illness that lasted for a few months. I am happy to report that all is well now.:-) I have been very busy in the garden and the kitchen. I was able to put up several quarts of tomatoes. Next week my mom is going to bring me some green beans and I hope to have several quarts of those. I have also had success making kefir and cream cheese. I made some of my salsa too. Here's the recipe:
Christy's Tomitilla Salsa
Red Onion
Lime juice
Now cut up however much of the veggies you want. Season to taste with salt and lime juice. Cut up a cup of fresh cilantro and mix it in with the veggies and seasonings. Now enjoy with tortilla chips. If you have a lot of juice leftover freeze it and add it to chili or stews come winter.

I have done a wee bit of knitting lately too. I did my first heel on my first sock and I am very proud of it. It is a short row heel and not near as complicated as my mind tried to make it. Nap time is nearly over so I must leave. Be back soon...

Isn't it exciting to finish your first sock?

I love homemade salsa. Need to actually make some. I like your ingredients. Those tomatillos make a big difference.

I hae one pineapple growing after about five yrs of none growing. I need to pluck it before the grove animals have a nice little treat. :-)

I tried a garden a couple of times but my rabbits, raccoons, foxes, etc. have that natural ability to take it just when it's ready to eat. I didn't mind helping to feed them but it would have been nice if they shared. heh
