First Peonies of June
Can't believe it is June already. One of my favorite things to do is pick peonies from our backyard. These are the first ones to bloom and then the more traditional paper-tissue pink and whites ones will follow. Love having bouquets of them around the house and on the kitchen table.
We had a very hectic month of May, including Tom injuring his right hand --- and he is right-handed. So, he is out of commission and won't be cooking in the kitchen for a month or more. But he can supervise.
He instructed our niece, Chelsea, how to make his go-to recipe, Orecchiette with Italian Sausage and Broccolini (click here to see recipe) soon after his accident. She had been asking us for inexpensive, easy-to-make recipes since she would be cooking on her own when she moves to NYC.
Now she is gone and we are on our own again.
I am kind of looking forward to a summer of being forced to not do too much, e.g., reading books, painting, and catching up on projects, while he recuperates.
Tomorrow I will post what country the month of June is....
