Birthdays, Rainy Days, BBQs, and Fresh Fruit
It was hubby's birthday on Monday. It was a very busy day, with lots of appointments to get to on time and it started far too early and ended far too late. We have recovered from all that and have settled into a nice "holiday" routine.
Marty, above, sits with Odelia in his birthday gift, a funky chair from Goodwill. They are keeping me company while I was baking in the kitchen, last Friday night. We were listening to a lecture online.
Marty got a great deal on a rotisserie for the BBQ and he tried it out today. The chicken was the smallest of our little meat flock. It's traditional to cook that one fresh when all the rest head to the freezer. Grilled veggies to go with it and a lemon tarragon sauce to baste it. YUM!
It turned out great. A lovely mid day meal on a rainy day.
While Marty manned the BBQ, I spent the morning making jam. This time it was organic lemon pear with cardamom and a wonderful apricot lime jam to go with the cherry I made last week. They will be great on ice cream or stirred into yogurt too.
