Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
I'm late in starting raised beds but I've removed the edge fence stuff from my old garden and have a number of bedding plants I'm keeping alive in pots until I get the soil redistributed. We have a long growing season here so a late start isn't a huge problem (though we just had Easter and my neighbor swears by not planting tomatoes until Easter.) Gardening has become all the rage now, clearing out area nurseries, so I'll probably have to start some crops from seed. I have a stash of old seeds and hopefully some of them are viable.

Today for lunch I finished the last of the eggplant Parmesan I made last fall and froze in a single-portion Pyrex covered dish. It actually made two portions because I haven't been eating as much after the surgery. As I get more active I'm sure that will change. The eggplants came from my yard. (I got high points a few years ago when Mudcat's Joe Offer came through town and we walked out to the garden and I picked an eggplant to use for dinner.)

I brewed some green tea with lemon balm the other day; it's my "house tea" this time of year because lemon balm escaped a pot years ago and grows all around the patio. It's only a light hit of caffeine so I can drink it in the afternoon. The ice in the freezer is made by an automatic ice maker, and most of it has sublimated in the freezer without being used. I've tossed the batch and turned on the rapid ice button. I dropped a cube and the puppy picked it up and skittered out of the kitchen with it like I was going to take it away from her. Such a cutie!
