Welcome back to Sunday Selections.
Begun way back in the mist of time by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock and now continued by me, with a drastic relaxation of rules.
Originally meant for showcasing old photos lost on your files, never seeing the light of day, the meme has morphed into photos of your choice, new or old, good or not-so-good, anything you please, but nothing rude please.
If you are participating, please leave me a comment so I can buzz along and have a look.
Elephant's Child always participates, and her pictures are always worth seeing.
you might find this week's selection a little boring, it's just a couple of things I did in the kitchen:
what to do with left over vegetables? Slice them finely, set aside. In a bowl whisk together two eggs and enough flour to make a smooth batter, not too thin, you should be able to pour it. Whisk in a good amount of grated parmesan, stir in the vegetables, pour the whole mix into a non stick shallow baking dish, top with extra grated cheese and bake at about 180C-200C until golden brown and set.
it should look like this and serve two people. of course you should adjust the amounts of egg and flour if you are feeding more people.
half for dinner and the other half for breakfast the next day.
I bought a package of green beans, many more than shown here, the pack was on special for half price, I rinsed them and tossed any that weren't so good
sliced them all, this is about half,
blanched them in boiling water for one minute, drained them well
and spread them on a non-stick tray and put them in the freezer. They should be spaced out in a single layer for faster freezing and so the don't stick together.
once frozen, loosen them with a plastic scoop so you don't scratch your tray, work quickly so they don't thaw,
bag them in zip-lock bags and get them back in the freezer. Next weekend I'll be doing the same with a bag of carrots.
Then I sat around doing stuff on the computer
and watched Lola sleep,
and sleep (kitty paws!)
and sleep 😎
here she is just yesterday morning, trying to decide if she forgives me for man-handling her into the carrier and taking her to the vet who stuck a thermometer you-know-where. She also got a shot for her allergies and we now know that our sweet Lola has IBS :(
We'll finish with a couple of pictures sent by no-one
this fabulous carved wood dragon seat that lives outside a butcher's shop/residence somewhere in Germany. She found it via Tumblr
and a sunset that greeted her as she walked home.
