It was quite overcast this morning but we didn't get any rain until about 11:30 a.m. Then it sort of drizzled on and off all day but even with the rain I had a beautiful day all to myself to work on my Nettles program and to just enjoy. Last night when I went to bed it finally came to me how I wanted to introduce my program to the club. Now I'm truly excited!
I was really busy today studying and trying to pull all my information together into a cohesive program. Hey, for you vegetarians, did you know that Nettles is 10% protein, the highest percentage in the plant kingdom. This is a Spring green you should be eating, freezing, dehydrating and whatever!!
I ended up with 3 pints and 3 half pints of fig jam. This will be all the fig jam in the world we will need for the Winter!!
I told you several blogs back that I had bought a bunch of chicken thigh and legs at, what was it, 70 cents a pound? Anyway, tonight I put 2 of them in a 9 x 13 casserole dish with our fresh dug potatoes, carrots and onions. I then sprinkled on top of the dish some of my herb blends, cheese herbs, onion and garlic blend, salt, pepper and flour with a little water and slid that into the oven on 400 degrees. I usually put poultry herbs on my chicken but decided to try something different. It smells like heaven in this house right now!!!
It's been a really slow day and you know, I truly think I needed it!! I've done several loads of laundry, caught up on world news, which just made me furious, and decided to turn it off and continue enjoying the day. I don't get many days where I just sort of do whatever I wish. This was a really nice day. Too many of these and I'd probably go out of my mind but every once in a while it's something I need!
