I can’t believe this weekend was the Solstice. It barely registered!
Needless to say, re-entry has been a bit tough. We’ve been enjoying some of the goodies I brought back (candy. Mostly Haribo from Germany and a bit of French chocolate), and I’ve re-created some of our new favorite foods. The currywurst will take some tweaking, but the Croque Monsieurs and the Homity Pie (mashed potato pie with peas and cheddar) were a breeze.
The garden went bonkers while I was away, and I’ve been harvesting tons of blackberries, raspberries, green beans, and zucchini. It must be my reward for not “losing” my passport and faking a Scottish accent for the rest of my life.
The green beans are in the pressure canner right now. It’s the first time I’ve used it, so I hope it all turns out properly!
Homity Pie! It was a hit. Served hot with a pint of hard cider, it can’t be beat for comfort food.
Now if I can re-create some of the fashions I saw over the pond…….
