Merry Harvest Monday!

I actually had a Christmas Eve harvest! One of the dishes I make for Christmas day calls for leeks, so I took a walk down to the frozen garden and dug out some of the last of the leeks.
Not many, but enough to add flavor to the seafood gratin I make. I don't think I've ever harvested a fresh vegetable on December 24, so this is quite exciting!
My day today is chock full of cooking and baking for my little family. Both sons and my daughter-in-law will be here tonight and tomorrow we will be hosting my younger son's in-laws as well. Tonight there is an evening service at church where I will be singing in the choir as well as doing a solo, so I need to have food and house ready by then. Looking forward to the blessings of the day! Merry Christmas to all and happy harvesting! Harvest Monday is hosted by Daphne's Dandelions; take a look at what others have harvested this week!

    1. Thank you Kitsap and the same to you and yours! I also have some frozen peas from my garden which will feature as a side dish tomorrow!

  2. So wonderful to be able to pick something for Christmas dinner. I'm bringing things from the garden but they are all storage things. Even the thumbprint cookies I'm going to make will have garden strawberry jam. But nothing will be fresh picked this year. Merry Christmas.
