Look who was waiting for me when I went to the mailbox yesterday…
Not sure why my Nikon has trouble focusing on tiny things these days…frustrating.
Anyway my pal walked onto my hand and I delivered it to a cooler and safer spot in the garden.
With triple digit temperatures forecast for this week, I was in the garden before six today to check soils and monitor the four new eggs in the bluebird box.
Back in the kitchen, I swiftly knocked out 12# of granola while I could let the oven heat out the window before the mercury ascended. I over bought fresh garlic for the chutney recipes causing the fridge to reek. This odor does not mix with tomorrow’s key lime pies, so I decided to roast the remaining cloves.
It is amazing how 350 degrees, olive oil, butter, salt & pepper, oregano, and chicken stock transform stinking cloves into a sweet, mouth watering gourmet delight.
To finish my morning tasks with a treat, the first white peaches of the season were ripe enough to devour. OMG good.
I hope that wherever you are your day is filled with summer surprises.
The weatherman says that Saturday will be 100 degrees—pray for me. 😉
