The Zoo

Juicing Day Phase One

Yesterday the food bank had an abundance of cilantro and citrus so today we are juicing. It took nearly an hour to juice 34 bunches of cilantro! The case has 60 and I was going to do the whole thing til I realized how long it was taking. That yielded about 1/2 gallon of juice. We then added 5 jumbo carrots, 5 bell peppers, 5 apples and the leftover lettuce and tomatoes from last night's dinner. We now have 5 quart jars ready for the freezer. Taking a break before starting on the oranges and grapefruit.

Fried Chicken

I love to eat it. Love the smell of it cooking. Don't like eating it when fried in vegetable oil. Or knowing the chicken ate GM feed. The solution? Render my own lard and buy an organic chicken! Smelled so good and tasted fabulous! Herbed cheesy biscuits went well with it.
