Vintage Tupperware & Harvesting

Harvesting Green Bell Peppers

Harvesting Green Bell Peppers

 My set of three “harvesting” items, a vintage Tupperware Cutting Board, a handled red garbage bowl and a washing bowl.  My garden is small so I developed a method for processing small amounts of produce. I first put a small amount of produce in the green bowl and fill it with water to wash the dirt off of the produce. The vintage tupperware piece is fantastic for chopping produce and pouring into small plastic freezer bags. The red garbage bowl is for the bits and pieces from chopping the produce and the contents go in the compost heap.

My sweetie doesn’t really like green peppers, therefore, I only use about 1/4 cup in various dishes like chili, spaghetti, taco filling, etc.  I pour about a 1/4 cup into a small freezer bag and seal it then put the freezer. When the batch is frozen I put the bags of green pepper into a larger plastic freezer bag. When I need some diced green pepper for a recipe, I just grab a small bag from the freezer. Easy!

I process several veggies this way, onions, other peppers and various squash (zucchini for bread, yellow for casseroles). Just adjust this process to fit your garden and family size and likes. A combo of green peppers, red peppers and onions could be processed into one Southwest Seasoning combo for stews, soups, etc. I will share my recipes for Zucchini Bread and Squash Casserole later this month.

Love Those Great Old Classic Movies? I do!

You do not have to have Netflix to watch movies online, although, I do lub my Netflix! I watch many of the classic movies on two fantastic FREE sites.

This site has a huge number of every genre of movie, such as family, comedy, drama, and of course my two favorites, horror and sci-fi. I like both old and new sci-fi, however, I rarely like the newer horror movies. I think the newer horror movies take the genre it to a whole new level of sadistic evil horror. The older horror movies are great entertainment without all the gross dark nature of human beings. Wonder what that says for our society!?

Our reality is so scary that our nightmares have to be scarier. A great topic for a Ph.D Candidate’s thesis.

Anyhow, back to those great classics.

This site shows many of the monster/alien oldies but goodies.

Last Friday night my husband and I were watching the new “The Day the Earth Stood Still”. During one scene, I said “Don’t they realize that our weapons wouldn’t hurt such an advance alien race weapons!”, my husband replied, “Yeah, didn’t they watch the 1950’s movie!”  We had a good laugh over that one!

Hope you enjoy the movies.
