My Day In (Food) Pictures


I made pesto. I had basil that was begging to be picked!

I froze some herbs. The mint goes in ice cube trays with water, but the rosemary, thyme, and oregano get frozen in either baggies or glass jars for cooking in the future.

Laundry soap. I know this isn't food related but I use my food processor! The food processor grates the Fels Naptha soap bar and then I grind it all together with the borax and baking soda to a fine powder. We use 1 T per load. I made four batches, each good for 40 washes. Pennies per load!

Part of James' lunch. When we were at LegoLand he didn't like his Uncrustable sandwich (those over-processed PB&J packaged sandwiches) even though I know he likes all the components of a PB&J. I decided to make my own using my mini pie crust press. These will be good for his lunch box!

Trail mix. I had coconut, peanuts, craisins, and chocolate chips that were from other recipes so I decided to just mix them with some almonds for a snack mix. Nothing fancy. No recipe needed.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Craisin Cookies.

I made the rub for the pork shoulder roast. SO FRAGRANT! Pulled pork in the crockpot tomorrow!

And I tried a silly Pinterest idea. This was supposed to be better than Easy Mac! NOT. It was basically cooking a small amount of pasta in the microwave and then mixing in cheese and milk. It didn't even come close to Mac&Cheese. It was clumpy, hardened mess. I should know better than to believe stranger's recipes. I am sticking to my favorite bloggers!


It was a nice way to spend a cloudy, kinda rainy day as James was content with his Legos.
