Spent the week using up some year end fruit and veggies. First off, I had about four Colorado peaches sitting on the counter. I had my fill of just picking them up, washing them off and eating like an apple so decided to use the rest with some puff pastry.
The peaches were just luscious...what's nice about the puff pastry is you can use this as a dessert or as a pastry for morning breakfast...so it didn't last long. One sheet of thawed puff pastry, sliced peaches placed on a diagonal..bake..brush a little apricot preserves on top..Enjoy!
Next... using up cukes, onions and peppers to make a small batch of refrigerator pickles. I remember my Mom having a huge gallon jar filled with these all summer long. She and Dad would have them as a side for almost every meal.
Slice up desired veggies, add some salt and celery seed. Make a cold brine of sugar and vinegar, pour over the veggies and refrigerate. Simple and so good.
My coleus medley has turned into a giant..it is taking up alot of space but I love it..
Love my whimsy Cosmos...
Bought a little cat bed for the kitties...they are even learning to share, which surprised me
I was going through some of my Mom's old "button jar" items. She used to throw everything in here from buttons, zippers and some "other treasures" that I hadn't seen for many, many years. Can you pick put the special 'treasure'?????
Hint... used before the invention of pantyhose! LOL, But I'm sure Carol still uses them with her fishnets!!
