Last spring I insisted that we plant a small row of carrots. I love garden fresh carrots. They have a different taste to them. It could be because they are so fresh or it could be because I have different soil than the large corporate fields. (We may weed and till the garden frequently but we do NOT use any chemicals on it.)
Garden Fresh Vegetables
This week, I am cooking at my place and Dale is coming over for supper. It has been nice to walk out to the garden over lunch, pick a handful of vegetables that are going to be mixed in for supper. Wednesday night I used the left over roast beef, some cabbage, garden fresh onion and carrots to make a beef stew.
I make a unique beef stew using fluffy dumplings (made with Bisquick and milk) as a thickener. It is always thicker when re-warmed. Thursday night I made chicken with new potatoes (from a favorite vegetable stand), onions and carrots. I was going to add zucchini and make corn on the cob but there looked like enough food without them. Don't look too long at the final photo; I am not responsible for drool ruining your keyboard or other electronic device.
I am an eclectic person. I’ve broken the mold for the stereotype of what an accountant is like (as an accountant with a very creative side). I LOVE to challenge what “always has been”. Let’s look at things and think about them. Is there a "better" out there that we have missed because “it’s always been this way”? “Live, Laugh and Love” is one of my mottos. There is so much beauty in life we just need to stop and appreciate it. “Dance like no one is watching!” because the music in your head doesn’t match what’s playing for anyone else. :^)
