After planting all the seeds, endlessly watering them, watching the beautiful plants grow, and eagerly awaiting all the fruits and veggies tonight is the kind of night a gardener relishes.
Lightly steamed green beans
Fresh sliced tomatoes
Green tomato chutney
A wild rose from our rose bush for atmosphere
I am happy! And may I just give another shout out to Frugally Challenged for the chutney inspiration and for letting me know that its recommended to be eaten along side meat. YUM!!!!!!!!!!!Also, the goose didn't turn out gamey AT ALL this time. So, so, so delicious!
Spending rundown today: $0. NO SPEND day 66 for the year. Side note: tonight's dinner cost NOTHING!
My budget for the month is $513.62 which leaves $392.58
Average daily spending for 2015: $18.04
Only for my own reminder I seared each side of the goose in a hot pan with oil, 3 minutes each. Took the breast out, deglazed the pan with chicken broth, turned the heat back on, returned the meat to the pan and cooked the breast for 15 minutes with a cover on (making sure less than 1/3 of the meat was submerged in broth) and turned every few minutes. Then removed from heat and let rest for 5 minutes (probably should have let rest a bit longer).
