Okay, I don’t mean literally cleaning house. That would be a really boring post.
Here’s a picture of me…dusting. Here’s a picture of me….sweeping. Here’s a picture of me…wiping my brow. Here’s a picture of me….folding laundry.
Here’s a picture of me…cursing that I don’t have a dude around the house to take out the trash and clean the bathroom.
would be is boring.
Last night, I finally plugged my phone into my computer to upload some photos that my mom had asked me to email her. Since I don’t have my real camera, I’ve been taking photos with my iphone. Crappily, I may add.
And today, I will be subjecting you (yes, you!) to these crappily taken photos.
Pictures of me cleaning = BORING
Crappy pictures of random things I’ve done in the last couple weeks = SUPER FUN AND EXCITING
That right there is what the SAT folks call a “very descriptive analogy”. (Or maybe they call it a a “very obtuse analogy”. Or more likely, they don’t call it anything and would have no idea what I am talking about right now. Like maybe how you feel right now?)
Wait, you can’t! Muahahaha. (I love blogging.)
First up, we’re looking at my first official real vegetable haul from the garden. This was all harvested (makes me sound like a real farmer, using that word) on Monday.
But, I didn’t know what to do with the squash blossoms, which I took off the HUGE MONSTERS masquarading as squash in my gremlin garden.
So, obviously, I posted this photo on Facebook to get my smart friends’ opinions about what to do with them.
They pulled through with several links to some awesome sounding recipes, none of which involved grilling, which is what I ended up doing.
Because I was already grilling and, why not? My motto: when in doubt, grill.
It hasn’t failed me yet and these were really great. They’d have been better if I’d have removed the stamen from inside the flower. Which, it turns out, is rather bitter. Extra ketchup and mustard covered the bitterness nicely, thanks.
What’s that? You want to see my latest random snack obsession? Well, if you insist.
I’ve been eating avocado like it’s on sale lately (because it is on sale). Lettue wraps with turkey, avocado, mustard, and cherry tomatoes. I caved and bought some tomatoes from the store.
I haven’t eaten tomatoes since last summer, from my garden, and I swore I wouldn’t buy them anymore since they taste like garbage in comparison to my garden.
But like the avocados, they were on sale. I couldn’t resist and truthfully they weren’t bad. They weren’t garden tomatoes either, but for $1? I’ll suck it up.
Here’s where I was going to post a picture of my stitch-less leg from my biking accident, but I don’t want anyone passing out from the gore.
Really the cut doesn’t look bad, but let’s jsut say that it has been bandaged for 10 days, and I don’t like to go near raw or fresh skin with a really sharp object, so there hasn’t been much leg shaving going on around here.
Even in a blurry iphone photo picture, it was still visible. That’s an accomplishment, right there.
(I shaved after taking the picture. I think I even grossed myself out.)
And that’s all I’ve got for you. It’s been a slow week around here, news-wise. Sorry kids. I’ll be more exciting soon. Maybe. (Probably not.)
What’s going on with you? Are you a ninja cleaner?
Have you had squash blossoms or do you know a good way to make them? A way that doesn’t involve being deep fried and/or battered and/or stuffed with cheese?
