Garden Helpers

This week I made up a game called “Lumberjack.”  Max and I pretended we were lumberjacks heading outside to cut down a big tree — a broccoli tree!  He humored me and played along and even ate some of the “tree.”  The game’s effectiveness was weaker than anticipated since Max had no idea what a lumberjack was.  Ginger was unmoved by the whole thing.  She seems to take joy in not eating what I grow.  Really, she barely eats anything.  Pretty frustrating.   She spit out one of our very few strawberries.  Sacrilege.

We had a yummy treat tonight.  Had friends over whom we haven’t spent time with in too long.  Those events always get me motivated to put a little more effort.  For appetizer, I put out our own snap peas and I made green goddess dressing to go with it.  I’ve never made it before but it turned out nicely.  Here’s the recipe:

3/4 cup mayo

3/4 sour cream

handful of parsley

the leaves of a few springs of lemon thyme

1/2 cup of scallions

2 tablespoon of lemon juice

salt & pepper to taste

Combine in the food processor till it looks light green in color.  Serve.
