On Sunday, in addition to all the other things I did around here, I turned this (I actually began with half a bushel):
|Cucumbers, fresh from Elora's garden. We traded dill for cukes.|
|Fifteen pints plus two quarts of garlic dills.|
Elora suggested eating a pickle whenever I felt the need to snack. She said that was one of her weight-loss tricks (she's managed to shed 27 pounds this year!). And I've read (because I read every word of weight-loss advice out there), that eating a dill pickle when you want something sweet is a good way to get rid of the craving.
Of course, you first must convince your mind that a dill pickle is a good substitute for a handful of chocolate chips. If you figure out how to do that, do let me know.
Thanks for all your comments. Ever since I said I don't get many comments, I've been getting comments! I didn't even ask (really), and I have received! I'm still getting them from the Inscrutable Asian Commenter, but they get rejected immediately. Power! Domination!
I should have been an Amazon. At least I'd be tall enough for my weight. Heh.
