First of all thanks for all the helpful hints about the tomatoes. My comments are still not coming directly to my email so I missed them until evening when I was checking my blog to see what was there – I get some of the comments but not all of them. I do check my blog a couple times a day to see if comments are left so I can respond to them.
I had already laid some chicken wire over the green beans and tomato cages and whatever else I could do by myself (Mike was working late last night) so now we will see what happens – well they get through the wire – probably LOL We are expecting off and on thunderstorms for the rest of the week so the egg/water mixture wouldn’t work right now but if I still have any left next week and if it doesn’t rain I will give it a try.
I finally finished up Winter Wonderland’s binding!! It was so muggy outside yesterday that other than working on the green beans I stayed in the house after I got home from exercise and grocery shopping. I started the embroidery in March of 2015 and got done with those blocks after a couple months and moved on to the pieced blocks. I finished the top in September of 2015 and then it sat aside while I was finishing a different quilt on the quilting frame. I put it on the frame in February on the 18th and it took me about 3 1/2 to hand quilt it. It finished at 92 x 99 inches it shrunk a bit more in width then I thought it would – the top was 98 x 103 before quilting and washing/drying. I am linking to Mrs. Sew & Sow today and Quilt Story: Fabric Tuesday and Esther’s Quilt Blog.
The Wagon’s West Wheel that I was working on last and this is where I picked up last night while I was waiting for Winter Wonderland to dry in the dryer.
I wasn’t real hungry last night and didn’t really feel like cooking much for one so seeing as I had 5 zucchini in the refrigerator I thought I better use some but what to make – I got started looking on pinterest and changed a recipe up a little bit and made zucchini fritters – of course it made way too much for one so I will know to cut the recipe in half if I make it again – Mike doesn’t eat squash – just me and Melanie if she is around – turned out good I thought. Here in the pan four were flipped to brown on the other side when I added the last of the batter – all in all only took about 5 minutes to cook.
2 medium zucchini
1 small yellow squash
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
a couple tablespoons of milk if needed
shred the vegetables and lay out on a clean dishtowel to let the moisture soak out for about a half an hour – squeeze on the towel then put in a bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir up. Fry in a little oil – recipe I was going by said half an inch but I don’t eat a lot of fried foods so I just covered the bottom of the skillet – get the oil hot and fry on each side about 3 minutes until brown – blot off oil – I used a horseradish sauce to go with them you could use a chili-lime mayo if you wish.
