Busy weekend is making for a busy start to the week without much stocked. I’ll lean on beans and rice and tacos until I get my bearings. Have a great week!
If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I got hit with large amounts of peppers (hot ones) over the weekend. Serranos, jalapeños, poblanos, and habaneros all had to be dealt with immediately. Quick breakdown of what I put up below: Fermented Jalapeños – Ya’ll… I am fermenting everything thanks to The Hip Girl’s Guide to the Kitchen. Picture above is what I started with. Charred Habanero Sauce – Used this recipe as a base with […]

I promised to check back in with some progress and here she goes. My first jar of fermented dill pickles smells divine, and is absolutely beautiful. All signs point to this being a fermenting household moving forward. Will have to figure out fridge space for this new pickle direction ASAP.
Last week kicked our butts, but we survived and even managed to squeeze in some quality time with my mama. Meal plans help me get my bearings in the kitchen and, in turn, the time in the kitchen helps ground me altogether. Lots of food to put up, a recipe coming later this week, and I am about to start a new hashtag to help track the fig explosion that is about to happen – #figlandia.
Full week ahead of us and we are down to a nearly-bare fridge. Lots to figure out and plan in the kitchen tomorrow.
