Fried Yard Clippings
Jude and Grammy have been enjoying spring today-- spring weather AND spring flowers!!
Grammy taught Jude how to fry dandelions and wild onions from our yard.
First, remove the stems and discard. Then soak and rinse the flowers with salt water to get rid of any dirt or tiny critters.
Dip the dandelions in flour and seasoning (salt, garlic powder, pepper, etc), then in a raw egg/milk mixture, then back in the seasoned flour.
And then just fry them in a pan of oil til lightly browned and crispy
Date night tonight! So excited!! Daniel and I have been working on a detailed weekly family rhythm. Being artists, we tend to be weak in the "planning" area and tend to just go with the flow. But we've really noticed that our family could benefit from some structure in our week. It's going to be great. Things like "date night" and "family night" and "art with friends" will hopefully become regular weekly occurrences in our home.
Do you guys have a regular weekly family schedule or do you just take one week at a time?
Either way, hope you're week is going well!
