In addition to Ryan’s winemaking adventures, we’ve tried a few other new things in the kitchen lately.
And The Pioneer Woman’s Restaurant-Style Salsa is my new favorite. So very yummy. (And I was able to use tomatoes I canned last year from the garden.)
Ryan also made these stuffed jalapenos. I really liked them, and that’s saying something because I despise bacon. With a passion. Betcha didn’t know that about me. I do. Hate.bacon. But these were good, even with the bacon.
And did I tell you about this awesome way to preserve cilantro. Sometimes you just have way too much to eat in the course of a few days. This is seriously awesome…. I froze it and then to use it, I mixed it in with black beans and rice. It’s so delicious!
I’ve also had a few mishaps lately. Like – Oh, dear. I tried to make homemade peanut butter. Inedible. I don’t know what I did wrong. But, oh my. Ryan has peanut butter every day for lunch and he couldn’t even eat mine. Neither could I.
And the bean burgers I’ve been so excited to make (and subsequently bought a food processor to try) were more like bean dip. Not really the consistency of burgers.
No use trying to grill them.
Well, I suppose there’s always ups and downs, right?
What is your biggest kitchen disaster?
