Small Successes for July 15, 2010:
1) Slow and steady wins the race and gets the laundry done :) Laundry and dinner were the two tasks, that despite how crummy I was feeling, I managed to get done each day.
2) If you fly with the FlyLady, we are in the bathroom this week. The master bath is squeaky clean. I managed to tackle that task in total on Wednesday.
3) Oleander and I made quick refrigerator pickles from her bushels of Japanese cucumbers. They must be pretty good, as I discovered Lil' Wingnut sitting behind his train table eating pickles right alongside his popsicle last night. Ew! I also made my very first tart using fresh figs. I've always wanted to try baking something with fresh figs and when I found some at the local organic market I had to splurge and buy them. The tart was a fresh fig and honey lemon custard variety. It was delicious, but a little to weird for 5 of the 8 of us. I promised to make a more conventional variety the next time. Tarts are fairly simple and with summer's bounty of fruit, I'm sure we can find a recipe that everyone will enjoy.
