Tomato Daze

My first home-grown tomato sandwich of the season was fantastic! It was worth the wait. There are about 4 more just on the edge of ripening. My Swiss chard has improved immensely. I was throwing away every stalk when it first came in. It looks nice now and I should have enough for a sidedish soon.

The kids are home this weekend, so I want to stop by to see them today. I sure miss little Justin. He's a cutie and a sweetheart.

I didn't get any crocheting done yesterday, but I'm back to work on it again today. Yesterday was a tough day for me. I had a very hard time getting up and moving around, and wasted half the day away.

I'll be starting dinner soon. I'm making stuffed cabbage. Well, not really stuffed. I couldn't find a head of cabbage large enough for me to find leaves that could wrap around the meat mixture. So I'll put full leaves on the bottom of the pan along with shredded cabbage, form the meat mixture into meatballs, and then cover with more full leaves and then bake. I was so disappointed. Even took a ride out to the local farm to check their produce and found it lacking. I saw nicer heads of cabbage in the grocery store.

Well, I am going to pick up the yarn for a bit before I get started with dinner.

  1. Lightly toasted white bread with mayonnaise? We just had our first ones, too. Nothing like 'em!
