Or you can use chives…just scallions, just red onions, shallots, or whatever combination you want.
The recipe isn't mine – I found it on the Food Network website – from an episode of East Meets West with Ming Tsai. If you want a copy of the recipe, here it is. I pretty much followed it exactly except that I used a combination of the baby scallions and the young red onions.
The first time I made these I used wild chives that were growing in among the horseradish and the asparagus. I didn't take pictures, though. And they were so good, I knew I'd need to make them again and this time TAKE PICTURES.
So here we go.
The kids were squirmy. Alex, at least, looked apologetic about it, like "But I'm only 6-nearly-7! How do you expect me to sit still on this chair?" Julia, true to form, had no apologies. She just flailed and wiggled and leaned and annoyed her brother and, at one point, while I had her strapped intoContinue reading “Applause”
See that? No, it's not REALLY WHITE white cranberry peach juice. It's goat's milk! Milked LAST NIGHT from goats. And in the bag beside it? A pound of ricotta made from goats' milk. I'm rich! But I will back up a bit. Julia and I dropped off Alex, put gas in the car, stopped atContinue reading “Fun at the Farmers’ Market”
Yesterday was Julia's last day of daycare/preschool. I was going to keep her in until Alex gets out of school toward the end of June, but lately I've been changing my mind a bit, and I finally decided that it's just not worth going that far out of my way to bring her there threeContinue reading “Friday Morning”
The other day Bill and I were outside looking at the gardens and cursing whatever creature had the nerve to chomp two baby tomato plants. Well, Bill was doing the cursing. I was sipping my coffee like a civilized person and listening to all the different birds chirping in the surrounding trees.
And then I saw a flash of red go by me and into the overgrown hedge that leans into our yard from our neighbor's yard. I heard movement in there – a busy fluttery sound – and as I stared at the branches, I figured out what was going on.
That's MY job. But anyway, I'm doing some rearranging on this here site. It's probably because I feel so cramped and crowded in the house right now, and there's nowhere to PUT ANYTHING other than wherever I shoved it when we started working on the bedrooms – I need to get rid of clutter somewhere. Continue reading “No, You’re Not Losing Your Mind”
Last Friday I was probably sanding down dried joint compound and then applying another layer of the stuff to the various seams in the sheetrock when Julia wandered up to join me. She stepped into the space above and asked what it was and I told her it would eventually be her closet. Innumerable shopping spreesContinue reading “More Thrilling Bedrooms Project Pictures!!!”
Some time last week I came across this sight in the bathroom on the main floor. We've moved the kids' toothbrushes and so forth to this bathroom while all the work is going on upstairs. As I'm typing this I'm trying to remember why we did that. I mean, we didn't move our own toothbrushesContinue reading “Sparkley and Clean”
I'm a few days late with this - Softie and Scratchy turned a year old on May 24th. Here they are hanging out amid the chaos of the bedrooms-to-be. Softie, in particular, likes to lounge in the part of the floor where part of the original door frame used to be – there's a gap –Continue reading “The Birthday Kittens”
I'm sure you can figure out the melody on your own. I am not a musician and I can't write music. I've just got an English degree, and so I CAN write some mean lyrics when I've a mind to. Ready? The……blade all full of joint compound goes slap slap slap/slap slap slap/slap slap slap/theContinue reading “A Song To Sing While Working on the Bedrooms”
