365 Project – Week 12

Lots of reds happening this week. Tomatoes, beets, radishes, bright red couches, and burnt orange sock yarn.

A radish! And a beet! There’s actually two other less photogenic radishes involved here, but these were just so perfect that I had to document them. It’s simultaneously weird and awesome to eat something that came out of the dirt in my backyard. I can’t wait to keep doing it.

Frozen yogurt from Tutti Frutti as part of our Sunday afternoon bike ride. Yum!

Row of radishes waiting to get plumper and bigger and to jump onto our salad plates.

Self-explanatory, yes? I hang my head in shame at that disappointed bunny.

What to do on a rainy day? Eat BLTs and watch Shaun of the Dead. Of course.

Sock #2 of the Southwest Anklets adventure! I want to slow down and make this project last longer, but I just can’t!

That beet pictured earlier is now chopped up with some of its friends, added to some onions, and pickled here in some Mason jars. And it is delicious. And my hands are still slightly pinkish. The instruction to peel beets in any recipe must be a practical joke.

Up on deck today?  Perhaps weeding the garden and some more knitting?  Anyone want to go out for bubble tea later?  Anybody?

  1. Shaun of the Dead!

    Apparently peeling beetroot in a basin of water wll help reduce the staining, but I feel like peeling underwater adds an unnecessary element of risk to proceedings.

    • I’m not really a radish fan, but Dan loves them. I didn’t even think about pickling them! What a good idea! I’ve already got designs on making some pickled sweet peppers, too, and of course, more traditional bread and butter pickles. The fact that the beets came out so yummy gives me hope! What recipe did you use for your radishes? I am all fired up now.
