The day started with a delightful garden harvest.
Chicken soup rich with fresh herbs and garden kale ... escarole, spinach salad with garlic chives and sweet cicely ... savory herb whole sheat biscuits ... hot tea of earl grey with pink roses and lavender ... these were the components of a delightful reunion today ... a visit from a friend not seen in the past year ... a delightful afternoon filled with catching up and much love.
The beans that were set to ferment the other day were rinsed and simmered. Black beans were rinsed and set to soak and ferment, and will be cooked in a few days time.
Some of the white and red beans found their way into dinner, along with rice and - yep - more herbs. I am delighted that we have reached that phase in the growing season where I can harvest healthy handfuls from the garden at least once a day. Absolutely delighted!
