I kindly look forward to your return. You've been missed.
A crazed 5th
Dear Pizza Man,
Awesome job....outstanding crust, spicy sauce, superb toppings. Too bad there aren't any leftovers.
A stuffed 5th
Dear Heat Wave,
You can go now. Anytime. Thanks and bye bye!
A sweltering 5th
And now....notes to my garden:
What am I going to do with all your produce? I guess it's going to be cucumber week in the Sister house. Let's see: cucumber salad, tzatziki sauce, and maybe the "fried cucumber" recipe I found on All Recipes. Hmmmm.
An astonished 5th
I am terribly sorry you are ailing. I do not know what I did or how to save you. I do appreciate the two, teeny tiny zucchini you were able to produce before you became ill. I will do my best to nurse you back to health but I am afraid that your condition may be terminal.
A sorrowful 5th
Yikes! You are quite the spicy number aren't you? Mr. Sister only used 2 of you in his pizza sauce and let me just say: Bring on the heat!
A fired up 5th
Dear Green Peppers,
Looking good. Just waiting for you to grow a bit more before I pluck you!
A salivating 5th
Ah...nice and plump...just need a little more ripening and then you can join your pal cucumber in a tasty Sister salad! Can hardly wait!
A patient 5th
Go away. You are not welcome around here. I'd much rather tend to my veggies than deal with the likes of you!
An angered 5th
Dear Fresh Herbs,
You know I love you. Shhhh. Don't tell the produce but you are my absolute favorite part of the Sister garden! You make everything so fresh and tasty! And now that I know how to "flash dry"*(see below) you, you will play an even bigger role in meal prep!
Oh pretty basil, sage, rosemary, oregano, chives and thyme! So savory and seductive!
An adoring 5th
*Dear Blog friends,
Here is how I "flash dried" my herbs this weekend:
Pre-heat the oven to 250 degrees.
Spread herbs out onto a shallow cookie sheet.
Bake for approximately 10 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to cool.
Now you can crush and place in a sealed jar or baggie for later use.
How easy is that?
A helpful 5th
Bye friends! Hope your day is grand and a great start to your week. Happy Monday!
