Ward House

Don’t be too hard

Today I am posting over at Homemaker’s Who Work about not being too hard on ourselves when an unattainable standard is not met.

All is well at The Ward House: the garden continues to do well, there are tomato, green & sweet pepper, and strawberry plants that need to go into the garden.  Right now would be an excellent time to get these little babies into the ground; it is cool, cloudy, and scheduled to rain this afternoon. If the rain will hold off until I get home from work then it’ll be done.

Remember the ramps?  We gave some of these with Ronnie’s mom and she called last night to share an off-the-cuff recipe with me: saute sliced carrots, celery, onions, and ramps in a sauce pan with some butter.  She then added chicken broth, rice, and leftover chicken to the mix and covered ’til the rice was done.  Sounds tasty, yes?  Well, since the chicken was already in the oven, I sautéed the sliced carrots, celery, and ramps with butter, covered and let them cook while the chicken finished up.  Add some salt and bring on the yum!
