My girlfriend and her husband came by yesterday evening for a visit. Her brother is a farmer and always has corn for them so they dropped by with corn for us!! Isn't that wonderful?!! They asked us if we wanted some and we just looked at them awestruck. Corn? Are you kidding? Of course!!! After the year we've had with the racoons and other varmints wiping our corn crop out completely, we were just overjoyed!! They gave us 100 ears of corn and this morning hubby and I put them all up. He gets the job of shucking and de-silking and I do the rest. I froze some on the cob and cut some off and froze it. I put 4 ears in the frig for supper and 6 unshucked in the frig so I can grill some tomorrow or Monday. I also was able to send home with them some tomatoes and you know THAT didn't hurt my feelings any!!!
I went out into the garden later today and picked a couple peppers, one red and one green and cleaned and sliced them and they are now dehydrating along with some Roma tomatoes. I've already put together the broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, onion, and garlic. After the peppers and tomatoes are dehydrated I'll get some parsley and basil and put it all together and will let you see what it looks like. You just can't believe how pretty it is already!! Hubby and I sometimes just like a chunk of iceberg lettuce with a mixture of mayonnaise and sour cream plopped on top. I just keep seeing this sprinkled on that white mountain of yum!! I'm not going to add any salt or pepper to the mixture so I can use it in any number of ways. Creamed soups would really benefit from something like this. I've not really measured the parts - I've just sort of eyed it, plus there are some flavors that personally you don't want to be too strong, like garlic, onion or even broccoli. It's whatever suits you!! You know, I just now thought, this would be a great blend scrambled up in a frittata or an omelet or just plain old scrambled eggs!!! I'll bet there are a lot of other ways to use it once you start thinking about it. Ooooh, it would be good in cheeseballs too, yes!!!!
It's a Saturday night and we've just finished eating some pork loins, Partridge Heads butterbeans, corn on the cob and sliced tomatoes. See below for pics of the tomatoes we had for supper. The light colored ones are called Rainbow and the other ones are the Cherokee Purple. Both just amazingly good! Have a restful Sunday. Talk to you again on Monday!
