I’ve gotten a little ambitious in the kitchen this morning.
Black beans in the slow cooker (I swear there are beans under there):
Cracked wheat cooked up and ready to be added to bread dough (which I still have to make):
And a crap-ton of carrots that I’m blanching to freeze (this is probably six cups worth… and it’s only half of the carrots… maybe less than half):
I’m hoping to make some carrot cake (thanks for the recipe, Kel!) this afternoon with some of the remaining carrots.
And a friend from church just dropped off a bunch of awesome fresh-from-her-garden vegetables… they’re begging to be made into a soup or a stir fry!
Let’s hope Leo continues to nap well this afternoon, or there might be gluey cracked wheat still in the pot and half-prepped carrots. At least the beans will take care of themselves (although the rest of dinner won’t)! I think I’ll leave the garden veggies for tomorrow…
What have you been ambitious about lately?
