Jay harvested our first batch of broccoli this morning. So far Joshua's the only one that's taste-tested it and according to him it's pretty yummy. Most of it's going on a spinach salad tonight. The rest will be expertly prepared (Ha!) for Jay's lunch tomorrow.
We were all sitting in Joshua's room this morning for our morning briefing when Jay said he had to go so he could cut some broccoli since it was starting to flower. He then looked at me and said, "Do you think you could blanch it and freeze it during the day today?" He might as well have said, "Do you think you could rotate the tires on my Jeep and change the oil sometime today?"
I understand both "blanch" and "freeze," but I'm still not comfortable enough in my domestic skill to be trusted with a gardenful of beautiful fresh vegetables.
Lucky for me, only the above amount was ready to come inside. Guess I'll blanch and freeze another day. Oh goody.
