{29}: pickles and salsa

"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week in 2013."

On the Range
July 16 - 22, 2013

{On the Range} is my weekly series where I discuss what we're doing, reading, and eating. It's a little bit 52 project and other photo projects, and a little bit {Did you Read?} and {In the Ranger Kitchen}.

Milestones

  • Charlieism: She saw Nate's hairy chest and said, "Daddy, you have mustaches all over your body!"


My week...

  • HOT HOT HOT. Ugh. The heat finally let up to reveal the glory of breezy New England summer. Finally.
  • We missed bluegrass night at Wright-Locke's Thursday night family farm event, both because it was so hot and because Nate was stuck at work. But I hope we make it next week for movie night!

Media

  • Oliver Sacks spoke to On Point about getting older. It's a great listen from one of my favorite authors.
  • If you're a fellow word nerd, lists of misused words aren't news to you. But I particularly like the funny way a blogger put together this list. If you like that one, here's another similar list
  • This month's Edible Boston magazine is one of the best I've read so far. Here are links to my favorite articles:
  • Stuff to laugh at:
  • Anyone seen the new Andie McDowell show yet? It's on the Hallmark channel, but it sounds like might not actually be television for idiots this time because it's based on a story by Debbie Macomber, a cool women's fiction writer who cooks and knits. Gimme your review if you caught the first episode.

Meals
  • I can't wait for it to be tomato season! I'm stalking Verrill Farm's website, lying in wait for when their heirloom varieties are in. End of July can't come soon enough. I want to try out local kitchen's spicy salsa this year. Last year we made her basic red salsa, which is delicious.
  • Edible Boston also included a great article about pickling with some recipes. I've made the refrigerator dills already. They are so good and so easy. Next time I'll forgo the Penzey's pickling spice blend for dill, coriander and mustard seeds, since the cloves and allspice seeds tend to overpower the dill. I will also cut the sugar a bit since they aren't being canned. The apple cider vinegar is a bit sweet already, so they really don't need 1/4 cup of additional sugar.
