jambaloney took this picture this morning at about 6am....i find it so serene to see my little house, my greenhouse and trees. this picture gives me peace and comfort - we really are home!
a good way to start your day - korean pancake for breakfast! we love korean pancake! it is traditionally served as breakfast in korea, as well as being served as an appetizer before dinner or supper.
traditional korean pancake is flour, water with an egg beaten into it, green onions and grated carrot. you can add anything you like to it - zucchini, mushrooms, cabbage - anything at all! we love it with a ton of green onions in it - yummeh! the dipping sauce is half a tblspn of sesame oil, one tblspn of soya sauce and one tbslpn of rice wine vinegar. the rice wine vinegar cuts the saltiness of the soya sauce and adds a real vinegry punch! we love it!
how about garlic scapes as art? isn't this beautiful???
once your garlic has produced scapes, it starts putting energy into the flower and seeds. if you want your garlic, the root, to spend more energy on developing it's cloves, then you cut the scapes. we were going to have these for supper, but they are so pretty i put them in a vase with water to enjoy for a few days. these are delicious sauteed with butter.
and here is my new kitchen cabinet - isn't she a beaut?!?!!?
i love it and it will give me much-needed space in the kitchen to store stuff. right now we have the dehydrator, the juicer and the foodsaver on our dresser in the bedroom - jeesh eh?
jambaloney yet again came through on building a much-needed piece for our house and to make our lives easier! i love that man! tomorrow i will show you where it is going in the kitchen.
we went for a walk down to the river and had dips twice today. it was wonderful and so refreshing! we made a promise to ourselves a few weeks ago that we would walk down and back to the river every day - rain, sleet, hail, snow - whatever! we are going to be postal workers and go everyday regardless of the weather! it is great excercise as the river is a quarter of a mile away. a walk down and back each day will be a half a mile walk. today, because we went twice is a mile walk. if we do it everyday, even in the winter - it will be great excercise! going down the road to the river is a pretty steep downhill slope - that works particular muscles. but coming back up that steep road really forces you to march. we love walking to our river regardless of excercise. but as we are getting older, we are in our 40's, we think that in combination with the various work that we do, regular dancing together and stretching and excercising - plus our daily walk - that will keep us fit and healthy.
we love walking to the river! and we'll take all of you with us!
