Friday morning is when I most often do my weekly grocery shopping. These lovely radishes grown locally and grape tomatoes (organic) will make for great salads. I bought spinach too ( in a bag) but didn't think it was photo worthy.
I tend to buy carrots in large bags because its cheaper that way but when they've been in the crisper long enough it's time to make carrot cake. This recipe usually makes 2 8X8s but my DH grated all the carrots that remained and it was a good cup or so more than the recipe called for. We stirred them in anyway and ended up with an 8X8 and a 7X11 pan of Carrot Cake.
My son and his family ordered in Sushi for their supper and it came with a free container of Edamame. They had some, weren't terribly impressed, so he brought them up to us. I've been meaning to try them one day and today I finally did. I must agree that they don't have much taste.
There are two immature soy beans in each little pod and if I'm right these were steamed. According to a video I watched you hold the pod between your teeth and sort of scrape out the beans. Seems like a lot of work for little results but what the heck... they were free.
My Mock Orange is in full bloom and fills the air with its sweet scent.
We have a Robin that comes to bathe in the birdbath quite often. It seems used to us being on the porch and unless one of us moves too quickly, it ignores us.
That is about it for today my friends. Tomorrow we'll be off to garage sales and see what we can find that we probably don't need. I'm sure I'll be showing you my treasures next time.
Thanks for visiting. Granny Marigold
