When you spend as much time in the kitchen as I do, you want everything to be clean and organized as well as possible. A few weeks ago, I dumped out everything in the fridge and pantries that was either past date or just never going to get used, and rearranged everything in a more sensible way. It felt sooo good! Of course, it'll take ongoing effort to keep everything organized, but that's life.
And with everything all freshly arranged, I turned my eyes to my spices.
It's that time again! Hopefully you are making good progress on The Winter Sea, if you haven't finished it yet, because it's time to start thinking about getting your hands on a copy of the next book on our list (less than $10 for the e-copy!).
We've come to my mom's second pick, and it's here to help us kick off summer! Interestingly, Andee got to pick the May book and my mom got to pick the June book, which means both of them were in charge during their birthday months back-to-back. It wasn't in any way planned, but I just realized it this morning.
There's just something about gardening that I love. And specifically, about growing plants that produce food. Even though I know I can't create life, it always gives me an immense feeling of pleasure to know that I took some seeds, put them in dirt and took care of them until they became something that could nourish me. It never ceases to give me a sense of wonder.
So I thought I'd share some of the happenings in my garden as Spring marches on.
