Someone is Busy in the Kitchen....

and it is not me. Daughter was telling me about what she had been making, so told her to send me pictures of her accomplishments, so I would have something to post about. My creativity is still on vacation without me - has been for some time now.
Pickled okra and yellow squash - yum! She said she used fresh dill and garlic along with the pickling spices.
How about a slice of homemade rosemary (that she grew), garlic and cheese bread.
Now this creation - not sure about. Fire cider vinegar.
Suppose to be good for colds, flu, etc., and since everyone in her house has a Summer, head cold right now, guess she figured she did not have anything to lose.  She said even Kitty was sneezing, but I doubt she will convince him to try her natural remedy.

Think I will pass on the "fire", but slice me a couple pieces of that bread, along with some thin slices of a sharp cheddar or a good garden veggie cheese, a nice serving of the pickled squash and okra, and a glass of wine - Yum!

Looks like this week will be a good time to get caught up on inside chores.

A slice of the bread your daughter baked would taste very good right about now! It sounds delicious.

Your daughter is a sweetheart! Hope that she and her family are feeling better soon! I'd love a taste of everything, even the fire vinegar...just a smidge of that. Very homey collage!

Rosemary, garlic and cheese bread? Be still my heart because this sound so delicious. The fire vinegar is something new to me, I'll take a pass on it thanks. ;-)
Thank you for linking to MM.

Nicely done canned goods. Yum!

Everything looks delicious, but I might just have to pass on the fire cider vinegar also. I'll bet she had the best smelling house in the neighborhood.

Nice of you and your daughter to share these lovely images and hard work. Not sure I can handle the fire vinegar but I would be willing to try!

Your daughter has been busy. I LOVE pickled okra ... one of my favorite things from my childhood. I giggled when I read your creativity was on vacation. I don't like it when that happens and I'm not on vacation with it! :) Have a great week.

Looks like your daughter and I have been on the same wave length with the pickling :). I think I may try beets next. Summer colds are the worse!

Decor To Adore said...

Oh I've never tried pickled okra but it sounds so good!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I could use a dose of your daughter's cider fire vinegar, Glenda, as I've been battling a throat and nose infection the past few days!

Linley S said...

Everything sure looks good, bread sounds nice. I am just starting to get into preserving goodies from my garden, started off with beetroot on the weekend

Mary Cromer said...

Busy girl it sounds like. I have a friend in NY and Saturday she made and canned 189 jars of homemade tomato sauce with Italian seasons added in. Her family and neighbors make it a block party every year ;)

Happy Monday!

Good for your daughter! You won't often find me busy in the kitchen. :)

Your daughters pickles look wonderful Glenda.
I think I might pass on the fire too!

It's such a satisfying feeling once the bottlings done - however nine times out of ten I forget to photograph them!

This is the time of year for pickling! Your daughter's jars look tasty and the bread delicious. You have the right idea for enjoying them!

Donna said...

Oh now I am hungry Glenda! Yummy delights especially the okra...

Alexa T said...

The canned pickles look so yummy!! Delicious idea...

Teresa@1800 Farmhouse Rd said...

Oh YUM!! I would love a slice of that bread. I am a garlic freak, and hubby hates it so I hardly ever cook with it.

I have Rosemary growing in my garden and the bread sounds delicious. I'll have to see if I can find a recipe. She has canned some unusual things. Bet they are delicious! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
hugs,
