July monthly goal link up + cooking


I am linking to http://www.elmstreetquilts.com/2017/07/one-monthly-goal-july-goal-setting-link.html with this little fox.

I won’t make all my goals this month, but that seems to be the new normal.

Today, after going to the gym and picking blueberries, I tackled Lasagna from scratch, making a double recipe of marinara sauce.  It took two hours to chop and prepare everything for the marinara and “cheese”, then an hour in the oven.   It will be gone in two meals.   Something seems wrong with that, however, that’s goes to show how much being able to buy preassembled items affects our lives.  And I do have enough of the marinara sauce for another meal.

Dar, one of the readers here, sent me a relish recipe to try.   This is as far as I am.   Everything is cut and salted and spending the night in the refrigerator.   At least when I tackle that tomorrow, it will be half done, so it won’t seem like it is taking so long.  I am nearly caught up on the cucumber issue.   Next I’ll tackle the zucchini.  I can grate that and put it in the freezer to make items during the winter.

And I did get a chance to check on the bees who are doing just fine.   One hive received another box today.
