I'll share more next week.
let's start with my two workshops... I'm painting and sewing and making art because of the last three workshops. Free and online. I gave links last week...
finished this one and really enjoyed the audio version, with great accents! Love this author.
finishing this one finally, the library took it back and I've waited many weeks to get it back:
Dancing with the stars returned to broadcast ABC, and I'm ecstatic! Survivor and Amazing Race returned last night, yea!! Bachelor ( for first time, a 72 year old man looks for love again after his long time wife died a few years ago) and Bachelor in Paradise.
I am grateful for a cable company that records shows at my request, as these are all on three nights, and I don't want to watch them all at once, and can stretch the fun out over the week.
Our prompt this week:
about Herbs and spices...do you grow any? how do you do it? pots, inside or out side? all year or in summer. Do you dry them for use later?
I don't have much success growing anything in Colorado, but always try Basil at least. This year it did not thrive but I've added into many dishes this summer. the nicest was on home made pizza... basil leaves just under the cheese... delish. The ground seems to be inhospitable so I grow what I can, in pots. We have a large raised bed for veggies. I only try growing them in hot weather not inside. I have tried drying the basil but it has little flavor afterwards.

I do love fresh ginger, and orange and lemon peel. I grate the fruit and freeze the rind for all baking. I put orange peel as well as fresh grated ginger in sweet potato casseroles. I use the peel in lots of baked goods. I put ginger in chicken salad, in soups, in casseroles, and want to try making ginger syrup to use in drinks.
I love fennel but can't find it in our stores here. I've never lived anywhere else where I couldn't find groceries.

We both like okra and tomatoes made from an old Tampa recipe from Gasparilla cookbook

|Hey, Mama! what can you be taking photos of? I'm the big attraction around here!|

|Here it is, put down that camera and come play with me!|

and this easy peasy iced cream made with 3 ingredients... cream/sweet condensed milk/vanilla ext.
the pawrents think I'm allergic to salmon... sheesh! Luckily they made butterscotch icing this weekend to go on the banana brownies... I helped by cleaning up the icing beater!
|LeeAnna here, I love the offset spatula I got for icing situations!|
