...........to cook. The temp has been over 100 degrees (37.7C) for many days now, but our green beans were ready to be picked. On Rosemary's blog I found the perfect salad recipe to try with our home grown beans.
Did I mention we grew them ourselves??? Yeah, it's been a while since we've grown many veggies, so I'm thrilled when I get to pick something out of the veg garden.
Rosemary's recipe is Bean, Mushroom and Wilted Spinach salad. I thought it tasted great. And with garbanzo beans, fresh spinach and green beans it was good for us too.
What I thought was so great was how easy it seemed to be able to enjoy those green beans. Just plant the seeds, add water, and wait.
On another note, the chicks are growing up so fast; they've moved on to the "junior" feed, enjoy sitting on a roosting post and they put themselves to bed at night.
Look at the "beard" Ginger is developing.
The other night Kim and I were watching the girls make their way to the coop. Kim wanted to take a few pics of them. Tootsie decided she needed to be in the picture in a big way.
She is one curious chicken.
And finally, Ebony trying to beat the heat by catnapping beneath some potted plants in the driveway.
Hope everyone is surviving the summer weather.
