Saturday night we had friends over for dinner.
I lacto-fermented banana peppers, a half gallon's worth.
And made a ginormous pot of black bean soup. (I cooked about 8 pounds worth of beans on Saturday - no exaggeration. The remainder I froze in 2 cup portions.)
See the red peppers in the above picture? When I bought them at the farmers market, I thought they were stunted red bell peppers. After slicing them for Saturday's dinner my hands told me they were lethal! As if my burning hands weren't a big enough clue, I took a big-o-bite out of one. Rookie move.
This afternoon the kids and I passed out invitations for an ice cream social for next weekend. Along with eating ice cream, we will collect school supplies for needy children at a nearby elementary school. I've been meaning to pass out invites for a while but it's been so cotton pickin' hot that we've stayed inside. Today we had a brief thunderstorm and the weather cooled to 85*. It felt great. :)
That's our weekend. See what others are doing at What Do We Do All Day?
