Jenevera has also been a little bit of a Miss. Sassy-pants this past week. She honestly doesn’t mean anything by it, it’s just her being purely honest and open with me which I do encourage. Actually this comment that I’m about to share with you made me laugh SO loud. As you all know, I love to cook. Sometimes my cooking is spot on, and sometimes well, it flops. The last time we had cucumbers, it was a little on the bland side but I always say “Oh, I wanted the clean, natural taste” LOL This past week, Nelson found an amazing deal on cucumbers, 5 for $1, so I knew I would have to attempt different recipes. I came across a recipe for braised cucumbers and being someone that has never cooked a cucumber before I thought, why not give it a go?
It’s now dinner time. I made my family a beautiful meal of pumpkin stew, a mild tomato-coconut curry and a side of braised cucumbers. Jenevera takes a bite, looks up at me and says with excitement
“OH! You put tasted on it this time”
I laughed so loud and so hard that I swear I got a bit of an ab workout out of it! I love my little monkey. Who does she get the mouth and sass from? Well, I’ll leave you to guess at that 🤭
I hope you enjoyed my little story and it gave you a giggle
Until next time, xo’s ~
