Winter harvest, winter chores

After some real winter weather - cold! snow! - we are now experiencing an early January thaw. Tomorrow the prediction is for a "wintry mix" - rain AND snow. We are still behind in rainfall, so as ugly as it will be, it is welcome. A good day to snuggle into the couch, knit, and watch football.

On the inside, I harvested the Meyer lemons, all two of them. So far, the first one has been squeezed into gin and tonics and over salmon. The second one is destined to flavor some hummus I plan to make, using this recipe.

Also on the inside, I defrosted the freezer and discovered some homemade pizza dough and mozzarella I had stashed in there. The pizza dough is a King Arthur recipe, the mozzarella a batch I made that didn't seem quite right but tasted fine (if a bit salty) when used.

Next up on the indoor chore list is ordering seeds and plants for the garden. The list is made; I'm just letting it percolate a bit before making a commitment. More details later.


  1. Yum! Sounds like a great day!

  2. We have had some switching weather, too. I am just ready for spring. What fun to find things to eat from your freezer clean out! I have been trying to remember to use things from the freezer, too.
