I spent most of the weekend practicing. I really wanted to name this post "experimentation" but I was scared it might attract some disappointed people who might Google that word! And if I'm going to disappoint my followers, it's gonna be on purpose. Lol
Let's talk food. And I'm sorry for the lack of pictures but I usually think of it too late. I've been getting bored with my own cooking and I'm still without a full size oven so that limits me. I decided to try to make something different. I made my first batch of stuffed peppers.
This one was a keeper. Simple but very tasty. But I had some extra filling left over and realized it's basically the same filling as cabbage rolls. So, with a bit of overconfidence I went out and bought a cabbage and began..... I think I need LOTS of practice rolling those darn leaves. No pictures because honestly, they were the ugliest damn things you've ever seen. I haven't tasted them as they are meant for later in the week, so they "might" taste ok. But to look at......just sad. More like "cabbage loosely flapped" than "cabbage rolls"
Undaunted by this failure I continued. I have NEVER been able to cook edible ribs. Fall off the bone? Mine are more like "try to gnaw your way through leather". But pork ribs were on sale so I succumbed. I put them in the slow cooker this morning. This one gets a C+ grade. Not a total fail but let's just say I'm glad I wasn't depending on them to feed company.
I think I'll continue this practice theme in my next post related to my latest rug. I've learned a few hard lessons on that project too
Hope you all had a lovely weekend. To end this weekend I'll share what has sprung up in my backyard flower bed. So pretty.
