Woooo everyone :)

Finally! We have tomatillos! Well we have over 25 on the vines outside right now, but four were ready to come inside the house for us to eat. Oh wait. Mom just looked over my shoulder and said it was for her and Dad to eat, not us. We shall see about that. We are the ones who helped plant the seeds. We are the ones who watered every day. We helped inspect the vines of all of the vegetables. We DESERVE tomatillos. Oh wait. Mom looked over my shoulder again and said since we did provide our assistance, we can sample it. WOO HOO!

So here is what it looks like growing on the vine:

And here is what it looks like on our counter ready to eat... well almost. The husk has to be removed.
LOOK how yummy these tomatillos look.

And look how yummy it looks in CM's mouth, HA ROOO!

Hey CM..... This is how you are supposed to properly inspect the fruit.

Now you try....

Much better! Good Girl Cornelia Marie!

Now, what shall we make first with our first ever home grown tomatillos??? We have lots of recipes, including one yummy looking one Lorenza sent to us!

Hope everyone is well. The weekend is almost here and Mom's summer vacation has come to an end. Back to work 5 days a week for her. Boo :(

Hugs to all!

Of course you deserve them. But maybe your mom plans to reward you with something else?

Momma just remembered that one of her favorite restaurants used to serve a very yummy spicy fettuccine with chicken, peppers, onions and tomatillos. Now she's craving it but too bad the restaurant closed.

Those look delicious. You deserve some just because you let them have them. I mean come on, they were're a husky and therefore you are in charge of all things reachable. YOU let THEM have them. Ah-roooo, roooo, roooo.
