Ok, so I said I would post this yesterday, sharing what I did with all my garden goodies, but then I ended up on a cleaning frenzy and reorganized my entire kitchen. It happens sometimes, I’m not really sure what’s wrong with me. Anyway, I lied a little, I’m sorry, but here are my
crappy phone wonderful pictures of all my messings around.
Somehow we ended up with a bunch of decorative gourds in the garden. I think they are probably the seeds form the composted gourds of last Autumn. Persistent little buggers, but hey, that’s at least $7 worth of decor at the pumpkin patch. The yellow flowers are broccoli flowers. Our broccoli immediately went to seed and we got no food from it this year, but I did find a use for these pretties.
This is and extra little thing I threw together with the crazy amounts of purple basil and parsley I still have. Don’t you wish you were the tiniest fish in the world and could hang out in there?
And as for all those tomatoes? Soup of course! I (mostly) followed this recipe. It was pretty tasty, especially with grilled cheese! The recipe calls for cream to be added at the end but I used a little plain yogurt instead.
Happy Autumn! Tell me what you are doing to celebrate/get ready for the new season. Decorating? Cleaning/organizing? Yummy recipes? ??? I want to know all about it!
