In the kitchen

Joining Heather for the kitchen blog hop.
It's been a busy week and I mostly forgot to take pictures, but here are a few:
The kitchen after I got home from the grocery store...
Bin wieder bei Heather's kitchen blog hop dabei.
Diese Woche waren wir recht gut beschaeftigt und ich habe meistens vergessen Bilder zu machen.
Ein paar habe ich allerdings:
So sah die Kueche aus, als ich vom Grosseinkauf zurueck kam...
 We were able to harvest and munch on the first blueberries from our bushes this year!
Wir konnten die ersten Blaubeeren ernten und haben sie auch gleich gegessen!
 Made frozen yogurt with blueberries and some Oreo cookie crumbs.
Habe gefrorenen Joghurt mit Blaubeeren und Oreo Kruemeln gemacht.
 Pulled the first (even though they are itty bitty) carrots from the garden, they were part of dinner that night.
Habe die ersten (wenn auch kleinen) Karrotten aus dem Garten geerntet und sie gleich zum Abendessen verwendet.
 Rhubarb waiting to be turned into jam.
Rhabarber der dann zu Marmelade verarbeitet wurde.

    1. Der gefrorene Joghurt geht ganz einfach. 3 Tassen griechischen Joghurt mit 3/4 Tasse Zucker und 1 Teeloeffel Vanille mischen. Eine Stunde im Kuehlschrank ruhen lassen und dann in einen "ice cream maker" geben. Dauert gar nicht lange und schon hat man gefrorenen Joghurt. Ist super lecker!!

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog, Anke! [The thought of fresh bagels made MY mouth water!] We are growing rhubarb, and will freeze it to make PIES!! That's all I use it for -- because we love the pies so much, we don't want to "waste" the rhubarb on anything else. The pies are one of my dad's favorites as well, so I always make sure he gets one or two.

  8. I think food harvested with one's own hands just tastes better! Love seeing your berries, I'm picking too.
