Sigh, I have never liked oysters...

I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC
Will probably get an assortment of skins when me snag maker turns up and have a play, even if a few skins get trashed in the learning process, it'll be worth it, thinking about it, me local butcher might be worth asking to see if he does them!
Weekend was prety good. Got alot of work done. The 5 yr old grandson came out Friday night for an overnight stay. On Saturday, I took him out on the tractor and let him drive a bit, sitting in my lap while we cut the grass. He had a blast. the wife made some gluten free cookies, one is a coconut and rasin the other was a fudge cookie. Both were pretty good. Made a peach smoothie for the grandson and his cousin. It was pretty good, but not something I will do alot of.... waaaaay too much sugar in the orange juice and the peaches and cranberry sauce...... A nice refreshing treat....
I harvested some red beets, and the wife oven roasted them.... pretty tasty. I pulled some golden beets and she roasted them on Sunday.... oh how frikin yummy! They have the same "beet" flavor of a red beet, but they are sweet. I can eat those... and I think I need to plant some more of them!
I also took some rutabaga, peeled them, sliced them thin and fried them in some olive oil. They worked pretty well for a potato substitue for breakfast on Saturday.
Harvested my first zucchini this weekend too! And a bok choy that is bigger around than my head.... as well as the first of the Napa cabbage. Looks like the stir-fry season is here!
Sunday was a 6 mile run. It was humid and fairly hot, so I didn't go as far as I usually do. The humidity just sucks the life right out of ya...
This week is gonna be a busy one. I have to make a trip in to town to get some maple so I can make a footboard for a bed for my granddaughter. I made a crib for her and I have a set of plans that convert the crib to a daybed, then in to a twin sized bed. So, I need to get that project done, since they will be here to pick up the bed in a couple of weeks. I also want to make a maple cutting board for my daughter for her birthday. Grandson graduates from pre-school this week too. Add to that my normal egg deliveries, garden stuff... this is gonna be a fast and busy week! Tiz OK.. keeps me off the streets and outta the bars, which keeps me outta trouble with the missuz!
