Scenes From a Saturday
This Sunday was a quiet one. Reading, preserving food, snuggling with kitties… just what I needed.
We had an abundance of heirloom tomatoes, so I chunked them up, drizzled them with olive oil, sprinkled with sea salt. Preheated the oven and following Orangette’s lead, roasted them for 7 hours at 200 degrees F. Popped them into the freezer, and know that my winter will be a little bit more delicious.
I wanted to try something different with the mountains of squash we have, so I decided to dehydrate them. The squash chips can be tossed into soups later in the winter, without taking up space in my freezer.
Vinny and my current read. “In the Language of Love”, a novel in 100 chapters. Each chapter revolves around one of the 100 stimulus words from the Standard Word Association Test. I’m reading one chapter a day. It’s like doling out literary candy.
What about you? How was your Saturday?
