Papaya is one of my favorite exotic fruits. They were on sale recently and we enjoyed several of them. They are so good with a squeeze of lime on top:
Lemons are a must have in my kitchen and we are very rarely without at least one for use in salad dressing, a pie, a glass of ice water, or for baking.
While cutting up cabbage for coleslaw recently I just couldn't help but stop and marvel at the beauty of the red cabbage. Incredibly artistic with its purple and white twists and turns!
And the black rasberries we harvested last week. They are so good! We popped these into the freezer until we can decide what to do with them. With all the rain last night and this morning I've been imagining the destruction of the rest of the crop. :(
Don't you just love the colors on this baking sheet: red, yellow, orange, white and purple!
We made good progress yesterday with our food shopping and the start of the food preparation: cutting up meat, browning sausage, cooking taco meat, soaking beans for soup, making pancake and scone mixes, and trying to fit everything into our fridge!
Now we are ready to hit the cleaning and the rest of the cooking. The rain outside makes for a good day to stay inside!
Happy 4th of July to all of you Americans! I hope you have a wonderful day with family and friends!
