birds

Another beautiful day in paradise.

The potatoes are in, i brought in all the lettuce that was left in the garden and left the swiss chard which can stand a little more frost. We also picked more cranberries today and brought home a grouse for thanksgiving dinner.
By the way, we eat a lot of cranberries these days. I snack on them, put them in the salad, have them for breakfast, cook them in curries or with any meat. I made some jam and juice.
and really while everybody uses them in baking, i promise i will too, it's just i don't bake very often. And i forgot i do have to make some cranberry sauce yet to go with the grouse.

You probably get giant heads of lettuce up there with all the sunlight, which now is probably receding fast. Side note: Pond apples grow in the middle of the swamp, but they aren't edible. That was a little bit of a joke, although I have bit in one once.

In mijn tuintje staat ook nog sla en krulandijvie. Maar helaas ik had griep en ben er dus al twee weken niet geweest. Het zal wel uit de kluiten gegroeid zijn nu. Net als jij bak ik ook niet zo vaak, maar ik had me voorgenomen om daar verandering in te brengen, dus ik had een heel leuk bakboekje gekocht over cupcakes, en net toen ik er aan toe was om te gaan bakken, kon ik het hele boekje niet meer vinden. Toen heb ik maar brownies gebakken met een kant en klaar mix en daar nog iets extra's aan toegevoegd. Was ook lekker.

Liefs, Haagje
