I so want to be in bed right now. I had the intention of sleeping in, and by all means, 7am would be a late wake-up, if I hadn’t gone to bed after 1am. Alas, I am getting hubby and son off to the dentist so I am up.
This is good though since I read Amy’s blog, New Nostalgia, and the anti-procrastination update. I love Anti-procrastination Tuesday for the encouragement to get my projects done!
If you’ve read my earlier posts, you’ll see I am very busy with food preserving. Not the typical, methodical food preserving familiar to the end of Summer, but random, too-much-bought, not-using-it-fast-enough-but-don’t-want-to-waste-it food preserving. This is the cilantro I chopped up and froze. The “cubes” are stored in a freezer bag.
I bring home all the left-over apples from work so today I will be peeling and chopping them. Some I will sugar and spice so they are pie ready; straight from the freezer. The rest I am going to vacuum pack. When we want applesauce, we just make it then instead of making a bunch and canning, or however other people do it.
My sister is involved with a gleaner group and she left this bread with me. It is pretty hard now so I made a dish of bread pudding (as I was kissing my husband goodbye- it’s just that easy). The best bread puddings, French toast and anything egg-soaked are best when the bread is stale.
The last time I made applesauce, I used a crockpot recipe. It ended up a bit over-blended, more like apple butter. No one likes the texture so I am using the sauce in recipes. I added it to this bread pudding, just to see how it tastes.
My last food project today is to squeeze all these lemons so I can make lemon sorbet. Supposedly I get two tablespoons of juice for each lemon. I need to make sorbet for 22 so we’ll see if this works out.
No time for procrastinating now. Have a great day getting all your stuff done, too. Beth
