Snow has kept me from getting out of our driveway since i returned from Fundo Panguilemu – arriving at MCI in a snow and ice storm on 11 Jan. However, the day i arrived, i got back into the habit of growing sprouts for health and greens. Now, my husband and son refuse to eat sprouts, so they have green beans or nothing.
Finally, got to town last Friday (24 Jan)- all three of us crowded into the four wheel drive pickup since we combined scooping snow off the sidewalks at the church, stopping in at the bank, and the grocery shopping (picked up a clam shell of organic lettuce/spinach). The shopping had to fit in three cloth bags and tied to the back of the flatbed pickup. It was a bit soggy on the bottom of the sacks, because of melted snow, dirty hay, and mud – but it was not big deal – main thing we didn’t lose anything blowing off. (First world problems HA!)
The potatoes are getting soft and eyes are sprouting – I cut out the eyes and throw them in the bin for the chooks. They could have had life!!! The potatoes are quartered and thrown into a pot of boiling water, along with their skins…..
Milk leftover this week, so it is potato soup with cheese and broccoli for lunch today.
