Rainy Memorial Day Weekend

The weekend was on and off rainy. It would stop from time to time, but everything was a muddy mess. The garden has been growing with leaps and bounds due to all the wet weather though!

While certain things just had to be done, rainy or not, for the most part I stayed in. There was a little crafting done..

..but I mostly stuck to the kitchen. I was on a quest to use some of the radishes from the garden so they wouldn’t turn peppery and pithy before I got to them, to use up some of the contents of the fridge, and to stock up on some edibles to leave for the guys while I’m away (the birth of my second favorite little girl is imminent!).

The radishes themselves became pickles.

The radish leaves became pesto.

The pesto (about half of it) became muffins.

I was thrilled with how these came out. They’re a bit dense, but have a good flavor and freeze really well.

On Saturday we went to visit Pop-pop and Nena who were hosting a pre-Memorial Day crawfish boil. Mellie got to visit, touch a crawfish, and pull Pop-pop’s beard.

It was a pretty decent weekend, despite the weather.
